I have no words to describe the excellent service we have experienced at Monets and Fancourt at large from the day I did the reservation up to the actual function. The hospitality of the staff the food the spa facilities everything was perfect. We were a group of 24 and I must say it was the best ever. We want to thank you all for your great service.
We will definitely be back again very soon.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FROM CORRECTIONAL SERVICES LADIES GEORGE.

On our current visit to Fancourt we decided to stop at Monets for coffee and cake after a hour of driving on the driving range, only to be terribly disappointed .... After asking the waitress if the cake was fresh, and being assured it was, we received a slice of cake that was DISGUSTING !! The sponge was hard and cold, the icing had a after "fridge taste", the strawberry was semi-rotten, old and dirty.... Im pretty sure the cake would of been amazing.... When it was fresh, which tasted like it was atleast a day or more before we got it ... EXTREMELY EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING experience after all the good stories ive heard ..

The service here has unfortunately always been a bit slow, but the food, decor and view over Fancourt made up for that. Sadly, it has progressively deteriorated on most fronts over the last year. The cakes were old and once almost inedible. The waitrons spend most of their time by the counter, chatting amongst themselves and completely ignoring customers. My waitress actually sighed when I asked for some milk with my tea and then just took the milk jug off the neighboring table that had just left and plonked it down in front of me. The floors were dirty and the upholstered furniture could do with a good clean. Fancourt is such a fantastic place that I'm sure this could easily (and quickly) remedied.

My absolute must stop whenever I get to George is Monet's - just because they serve the best Carrot Cake in the whole of South Africa. Popped in again last week - and were not surprised. However did decide to skip the "healthy" carrot cake this time and try the burger. Was not disappointed at all. Tasty, filling and great presentation. As usual the setting and the staff did also not disappoint. Thank you for making our drive through George a pleasure every time. See soon again!
