Bistro at Grande Provence
The Bistro is a casual, yet contemporary eatery and the perfect destination for anyone in pursuit of a top-tier Cape wine farm experience but with meals taken in a more relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere.
Having said that, it doesn’t compromise luxury for accessibility, and we found the service exceptional, the tables beautifully decked, and the décor striking the perfect balance between casual and sophisticated.
Our Head Chef Marvin Robyn designed an easy style simplistic menu that caters for all.
The Bistro at Grande Provence Franschhoek is just next door to the garden sculpture, gallery, and outdoor wine tasting area. Children are welcome to play along the open grass area.
With laid back, unpretentious decor, the food is exactly that. Farm fresh produce and Bistro-style dishes are just what your taste buds are dying for. If you are after wholesome, freshly made gourmet fare, then you will be pleasantly surprised.

Head Chef Marvin Robyn
Chef Marvin Robyn, with his passion in the culinary world brings Grande Provence a whole new look into Bistro style dishes. Creating each dish with a unique balance of flavours and textures.
From presentation to your Taste Buds, one would without a doubt taste the Summer crisp in each dish.
Before joining the Grande Provence team towards the end of 2018, he gained valuable experience working with leading chefs in a number of top Winelands restaurants including Delaire Graff, Cuvée at Simonsig, Equus at Cavalli Makaron at Majeka House.
Marvin who worked with Chef Lucas Carstens for six years, first at Cuvée and later as sous chef at Makaron, still considers him his mentor today. On the international front, he cites London Michelin chef Marco Pierre White as a source of culinary inspiration.
As an avid fisherman, Marvin loves working with fresh seafood above all else.

He also loves catching up with his chef friends, sharing ideas and exploring new horizons.
