Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and for this special day, a glass of wine is simply not enough for your lover. You want something more exciting, more tingly like a glass of the country’s best sparkling wine. The only thing more special than having the perfect bottle on the table dinner would be going straight to the source for some good food, intimate conversation and of course, plenty of bubbly.


The House of JC Le Roux has a set the perfect stage for a romantic Valentine’s Day on their stunning estate. Their restaurant, Le Venue, has prepared a delicious menu that is guaranteed to impress your date, no matter what time of day you plan on going out.

For those early lovebirds who are planning on a full day out, why not start your day off at The House of JC Le Roux? They have a mouth-watering breakfast menu that will set the tone for the rest of your day. Start off with orange and chocolate granola with yoghurt and sweet raspberry compote, fresh fruit, followed by an omelette filled with crispy bacon, creamy camembert, caramelised red peppers and red onions, drizzled with basil pesto.


If you are looking for a romantic afternoon out, Le Venue will be open with their scrumptious a la carte menu, which you can enjoy with flutes of bubbly. Sit outside on their deck and enjoy the wonderful scenery or sit inside the restaurant where you can enjoy uninterrupted views of your lovely partner.

The dinner menu is where the magic happens. You will be greeted with a glass of bubbly, followed by a delicious amuse bouche to whet your appetite. Choose between a salmon or beef starter before tucking into a juicy, honey-glazed pork belly or fresh Kingklip and prawns.


End the meal off with a decadent lime baked cheesecake or orange and lavender crème brûlée. If any of these suggestions sound like the perfect Valentine’s Day date for you, hurry and book now before all the spaces are filled.

The set breakfast menu, served from 9 am to 11 am, costs R135 per person. Dinner at R350 per person will start from 6:30 pm in the evening. Booking is essential. Nothing says romance like beautiful scenery, decadent food and lots of bubbly to get you in the mood!
