Frances has been named after the former custodian of 16 Harbour Road – Professor Frances Gonin, who was once the mayor of Hermanus, not to mention a professor of French!
Inspired by the culinary lifestyle of the Mediterranean, the focus at Frances is on offering fresh, artisanal produce sourced from the local region. We keep our menu simple with the emphasis of each dish on the quality of the ingredients used. We strive to use organic, farm fresh produce from the surrounding region and support our local artisans as much as possible. Our breads are freshly baked, our cheeses are from Klein River (an award winning farm nearby), our eggs are free range and even some of our crockery is from a potter in Kleinmond.
