About Us


A short history

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.

The key members of our team are:
