What’s on the menu?

At Mont Rochelle the food served is a blend of international dishes with a healthy nod to the varied nature of South Africa cuisine, paired naturally with some superb local vintages. The wrap-around views of the Franschhoek valley do steal the show somewhat, but you can be sure our chefs have been focusing on dishes made with fresh, seasonal ingredients.
