Eat at La Residence

Dining at La Residence

The very best of local ingredients

The Franschhoek Valley produces superb harvests, as well as award-winning wines. That means that whatever the season, the La Residence kitchen team always has a superb variety of fresh, local ingredients to work with. Working with artisanal local suppliers, they source the very best of everything from salad leaves to meat to cheese, and use these as the inspiration for their unique creations.

La Residence is the perfect place to enjoy anything from a delicious snack to a romantic dinner for two. With many different spots in which to eat, including al fresco picnics for long, lazy summer afternoons.  The food offering – just like Liz Biden’s maximalist décor – combines contrasting and complementary elements to tell stories and surprise and delight you at every turn.

La Residence welcomes non-resident guests to experience this unique approach to seasonal, local cuisine, subject to availability and by prior reservation only.
