Trés Jolie is a country restaurant and venue in the Ruimsig area of Gauteng. Located on a 5 hectare property it is characterised by exquisite gardens and landscaped with fountains and water features this picturesque restaurant also boasts a farmyard where children can feed the animals, enjoy a pony ride and play whilst under the watchful eye of their parents
Tres Jolie, meaning very pretty in French, started in September 2005 when two single mothers, Adele and Lizette, bought Plot 22 Peter Road to start a kids party venue. Roland joined the ladies in March 2007 when he married the venue, rather when he married Adele.
In 2008 Lizette left the partnership and Roland sold his financial planning business to focus all his energy on transforming Tres Jolie from a kids party venue into a fully-fledged Restaurant, Function and Wedding Venue. Roland and Adele, both Chartered Accountants by profession, were assisted in the early days by four special individuals, Bryan, Bernard, Tanya and Numsa.
Tres Jolie is a miracle and a testimony to God’s grace in that it was built by a group of people who had absolutely no training or experience in the hospitality industry.
Tres Jolie today is an established venue; Roland and Adele have gained experience and grey hair and built a team of special, dedicated individuals from various disciplines within the hospitality industry. Adele now focuses on running the accounting and wedding side of the business and Roland is behind the scenes.
