Food was delicious. So many different flavours on one plate. Would highly recommend and worth the drive to Franschoek.
Pitty the fireplace wasn't lit as it was cold and needed some ambiance.

Our party of five opted for the wine paring with our meal and when the first dish arrived to the table we we left wanting on the pairing. The waitress also had long hair and kept flicking her hair away from our plates every time they were brought to the table.

We were alone in the restaurant on Thursday lunch time. We were placed outside as the weather was great.
This was truly a great discovery for us. The idea of "sampling" the first 4 courses as entrees enabled us to test very positively the variety of the chef's know how. The main was equally delicious. After all those savors, the additional desert to the special menu could have been avoided but we wanted the whole deal. We were not as impressed as for the menu, although the plate setup was equally beautiful. Great address that we will revisit with pleasure. Just a note, service 12.5% was automatically added but we were told that we should add some more... Does not cast a good vibe at the end of such a culinary experience. If the restaurant team feels that service should be 15 of 20% make it mandatory upfront.

About Protégé Restaurant

Cuisine: Fine Dining

Protégé hits all the spots with a refined, flavour-packed approach to casual fine-dining, a concept that seems to be on the rise lately.
- Lynda Ingham-Brown, Eat Out

About Protégé

Protégé is an exciting new casual fine dining eatery under the guidance of previous Eat Out Chef of the Year, La Colombe’s Scot Kirton.

Scot is proud to be part of the process of recognising young talented chefs and giving them the opportunity to put themselves on the map. In keeping with this, the restaurant was aptly named Protégé.

Jess van Dyk will head the kitchen team. Jess has been working closely with Scot and James Gaag for many years and was most recently the head chef at La Colombe.

The idea with Protégé is to keep it casual and comfortable. Jess is working with local suppliers to keep the menu as fresh and as seasonal as possible. “I could not be prouder of having Jess lead the team. She has given me so much over the years and now it’s time for me to help her achieve her dreams.” says Kirton.
