I have been to Follage twice now over the last two years or so and I think its incredible. My wife is from SA originally and we get to travel home once a year or so and without fail (now) we stay a couple of...nights in Franschhoek and have dinner at Follage.
The first time I had grey squirrel pared with a big Chardonnay which blew my mind. Still one of the most amazing things I have ever tried.
This time I had BBQ mackerel dim sum which was also mind blowing.
The thing I like most about this restaurant is the way out menu. My advise - go completely out of your comfort zone when it comes to ordering, try the most unusual thing on the menu and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.
10/10 and one of my top restaurants of all time.More
What a beautiful dinner we had, everything on the menu sounded exotic, and the presentation of the meal was magic, its ART on a plate at first you're blown aqay by the flair and then the taste it was food orgasms, sublime experience a definite...stop in Franschhoek. Thank youMore
Dined at Foliage tonight. Food was good, not great.
COVID protocols not being followed as our temperatures were not checked upon arrival.
Service was abysmal. Felt non existent. Other tables were checked on regularly by the wait staff. The only time they came to our...table was to ask if we would be ok with a window/door being opened to accommodate another table.
We finished our bottle of water and were not even offered another. I finished my beer well before I finished my meal and again I was not asked if I wanted another one (I did). Our three pieces of bread, including one small end piece, was collected without the offer of more. The staff did not check to see if we were happy with our meals.
The whole ambiance felt like a club that we weren't invited to or welcome to be in. The chef seemed to be talking to one particular table the majority of the evening and the tempo of the service felt hurried as if everyone would be a lot happier once we were gone.
We were a lot happier once we were gone too.More
A special occasion was unfortunately spoilt by poor service and food way below the quality we experienced on previous visits. With so many other restaurants to choose from in and around the area, we will not be going there again anytime soon.
I think this question about reservations should be directed to the restaurant. We had a memorable evening - first class food, wine and service and value for money! Fine dining abounds so don't delay in making a booking.
