The French Connection is a charming bistro-style restaurant with a welcoming and unpretentious atmosphere. Chef Patron, Matthew Gordon, has created a simple, yet enticing menu, guaranteed to suit all palates.
Concentrating on using only the freshest ingredients, the menu for lunch includes a range of salads such as grilled calamari & chourico with wild rocket and paprika dressing & smoked chicken breast with roasted beetroot, hummus & garlic yoghurt dressing. There is also a range of pitas to choose from as well as a more substantial selection of items such as veal schnitzel with fresh porcini sauce, fillet mignon with three mushroom sauce and salmon trout & dill fish cakes with green herb mayonnaise.
The dinner menus boasts such specialties as crispy roast duck, fresh mussels and an excellent steak selection. The quality of these dishes and the great value for money cements French Connection as a firm favourite with both locals as well as foreign guests. The Franschhoek valley is known for its excellent wines and our winelist comprises mainly of local wines alongside other regions listed on our black boards as specials.
