The Country Kitchen in Franschhoek is situated at the vineyards at the wine tasting facility of the Mont Rochelle Vineyards.
At the Country Kitchen, you can enjoy an al fresco lunch or a mediterranean slant on dinner. One of the popular and really enjoyable things to do here is to order a picnic basket, a bottle of wine or two - and a blanket - and enjoy a picnic in the vineyards, at the dam, in the rose garden, or in the shade of an oak or weeping willow tree.
