The Kitchen at Maison Estate – Franschhoek Restaurant

Chefs Warehouse at Maison Estate

Chefs Warehouse at Maison opened its doors on 26 November 2017, serving their unique blend of ‘global tapas’ inspired food in our picturesque, newly renovated farmhouse setting.

Chefs Warehouse at Maison Estate is located about 4 km outside Franschhoek with spectacular views of the Maison Estate vineyards and mountains.

This new restaurant, which replaced The Kitchen at Maison, is chef Liam Tomlin’s fourth eatery, and the opportunity to collaborate with his team makes perfect sense.

Chefs Warehouse shares the values of Maison of creating an exceptional food and wine experience in inspiring locations and combining Chefs Warehouse’s unique menu with Maison’s award-winning wines is a match made in culinary heaven.

Chefs Warehouse at Maison is about experiencing food like you’ve never experienced it before. In short, it’s about the sheer pleasure of taste. By pairing flavours in unexpected and exciting ways, an infinite number of fresh taste sensations is created for you to enjoy.

Building on the success of his first three established eateries - Chefs Warehouse and Canteen on Bree Street, Thali in Gardens and Chefs Warehouse at Beau Constantia - chef Liam Tomlin has created a taste experience that matches the magnificent setting of the Maison Estate. Under the guidance of Tomlin, dynamic young chef David Schneider uses fresh ingredients, based on seasonal availability, to create a global tapas inspired menu that incorporates a world of different flavours in one, multi-coursed meal. Expect the unexpected.
