“Outstanding”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

The B&B in which we were staying made this reservation for us and we arrived on a cold, rainy evening. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The food was superb and the service attentive.
We had scallops, prawns, foie gras, duck, pork, lamb so pretty much everything on offer and it was beautifully fresh and well presented.
The chocolate dessert which is a trio of puds, is sublime!
You will not be disappointed at this wonderful restaurant.

“What an amazing meal!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

This place was recommended and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent, well presented, superbly cooked and delicious. The service was fantastic and attentive. The whole experience was first rate. I don't usually recommend but in this case I will make an exception. If you are looking for top quality food with superb service at reasonable prices, this is the place.

“Perfect evening!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We had dinner here, the restaurant was almost empty because it was low season, but we felt welcome the whole night.
The food was absolutely delicious, sometimes with bold win combinations, always very tastfull. The service was great and the restaurant was a very pleasant and romantic vibe about it. When you're in the neighbourhood, definitely try and grab a bite here, it will be worth your money.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We went away for the Friday night (01/08/2014) to Franschhoek and looked on TripAdvisor for the best restaurants to go to. The Tasting Room was our first option but one look at the prices made me feel sick, since it cost almost as much as my accommodation.

We definitely made the right choice going to Le Bon Vivant as not only was the food decadent and truly amazing, but so too was the service exceptional.

Well done guys and we hope to come back soon.
