We had a very good dinner at Le Bon Vivant Garden Restaurant. Food, although not stunning was very good and the dessert soufflé was fantastic. Service was friendly and efficient. A nice restaurant all round which was packed when we visited on a Monday evening, so reservations are a must.

Thanks again to Trip Advisor we enjoyed a fabulous meal at this restaurant. The surroundings are tasteful and the service faultless. Food delicious and beautifully presented and we enjoyed being able to look through the glass screen to chef at work in the kitchen. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful meal at Le Bon Vivant - the dishes were innovative, beautifully presented and of very good quality. If you get the chance, choose the mini-dessert menu, a combination of all the desserts offered - beautiful to behold and delicious!

There are certain restaurants in the world which you go to and simply enjoy. This is one of them.

Located just off of the main street in a quiet corner of Franschhoek, we found this dining experience delightful--from the food to the service to the ability to watch the chef (and owner) make our marvelous treats.

The story of the restaurant (http://www.lebonvivant.co.za/) tells of the passion that the owner/chef has put into his creations, and the creations themselves emerge magnificently from the kitchen. They taste as great as they look--and trusting the chef to choose the menu for you (the course-based "surprise" menu) is a decision you will never regret.

It's the perfect place to settle in after a long day driving through wine country--which is exactly when we stopped in. And there's something for everyone on the menu.

The food here is outstanding...a true art form but with decent portion sizes. The menu is creative and imaginitive, the dishes are spectacular in their and the food is a real delight to eat. Combined with attentive and knowledgeable staff, Le Bon Vivant makes for an excellent evening out in the heart of Franchoaeck
