Description: The Valley of the Huguenots is one of the premier wine destinations in the world. It is here that the Maison Estate produces wines that are nature's product, honed with skill, care and respect. Each vine is nurtured, each grape hand selected to give it that personal touch that is always home, always Maison. We make highly individual wines. We drink them with the people closest to us - and we love drinking them at home, where we can really explore the intimate character of each bottle," says Weylandt. "While travelling is my passion, the comforting memory of a meal, of intimate moments shared with good friends over good wine, always draws me home." This is Chris Weylandt's inspiration behind the name Maison - the French word for house. Explore Maison Estate. You won't regret it.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in the greater Franschhoek area. Chef Arno's food is simple and tasty. The ambience is lovely and it is the perfect place to while away an afternoon... I am however slightly concerned about the service that was very slow and the fact that is is becoming a family destination taking something away from the calming space it used to be.

Food was fresh and tasty. Service attentive and the view and atmosphere was amazing. One of our favourite eateries in the valley.

Definitely a repeat destination as we know we will always have quality food.

Only drawback was the unsupervised kids running around, making a noise and disturbing the serenity.

We went for lunch and left several hours later. We just couldn't pull ourselves away from the beautiful view over the vineyard from the couches on the lawn sipping wine with our dessert, a fantastic way to end a great lunch. This is a place for those who appreciate stylish simplistic design and fantastic food, in other words just about everyone. It's clear the owner is a furniture designer from the decor. Every table has a great view as the seating area is a large deck at the back of the building or a large communal bench table on the lawn. The staff need a special mention for their professionalism, knowledge and friendliness. The food of course is also superb with a specials board that makes up the majority of the selection. On a sunny day in particular this is a place not to miss for lunch in Franschhoek.

We like everything about The Kitchen, the food is just out of this world in a setting that is more than welcoming and relaxing. The staff are so so friendly, are fully informed about the menu. You are NEVER hurried....and the wine is the best, especially the Shiraz... But don't tell everyone, it is too nice to share with them all, we like to keep it a secret!!!!!

We had an amazing lunch at Maison and were wowed by the beautiful decor. Every restaurant in Franschhoek exceeded our expectations, but this was by far the best.
