Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant Heritage Cuisine

Still celebrating South Africa’s culinary heritage, Pierneef à La Motte has a new and more relaxed format with an à la carte menu, treating guests to comfort food and hearty favourites with a modern interpretation.

I love visiting the beautiful Franschhoek Valley, the quiet and charm that La Motte Wine Farms and vineyards have to offer. From the beautiful gardens as well as the spacious and secure environment of the Restaurant.

With its refined and calm ambience perfect for extended lunch hours, Pierneef à La Motte’s new food offering is fitting for the uncertain times we live in. Chef Eric Bulpitt’s menu changes frequently but focuses on favourites from our culinary heritage and interesting interpretations of comfort meals – moreish and hearty, but not without a chef’s touch!

Chef Eric Bulpitt’s cooking is seasonal, focusing on local ingredients and celebrating South Africa’s diverse cooking culture. I enjoy it most because his menu changes regularly, but from my recent visit to Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant, I recommend my favourites from his new menu:


Starters at Pierneef à La Motte

Delicious Franschhoek salmon trout with first of the season broad beans, mint and fennel and the most beautifully roasted young beets salad from the gardens on the estate.


Mains at Pierneef à La Motte

We had some delicious main courses such as Slow cooked beef with maize rice, Milanese and gremolata, Iberian Pork with burnt bread and spice purée and Beef Rump with smoked potato skin purée and raw mushrooms.

La Motte is known for the elegance of its wines. These beautifully balanced wines make for ideal partners on the lunch table. The wines are a big part of the inspiration behind the dishes at Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant and therefore is suggested on the menu with each dish and available per glass.
