Yes we have been there before, almost a year to the day, so what is wrong with revisiting the tried and tested. And I am glad we did, being in the Western Cape is always a gastronomic journey for us with the choice of so many fine eateries. Having had a fairly robust breakfast we wanted something smallish and packed... More

We decided to have lunch at La Petite Ferme after a recommendation by a local during our stay in Cape Town. The restaurant manager fitting us in for lunch at very late notice..we made the booking only a few hours before we arrived. We appreciated the special effort! The dining room looks out over the valley... Spectacular views no matter... More

Pretentious, pricey, playing hard to get when you are trying to book a table. Beautiful setting. The staff reserved and business-like, resulting in crisp and efficient service. Food wise: First amongst equals.

We returned to La Petite Ferme after a 15 year gap wondering if the food would match the fabulous experience we had had 15 years before when we visited as a party of 3 couples. This time with 5 children in tow we arrived on a chilly day for the last lunch setting. We all absolutely loved the food, the... More

Big hell to the yeh! This winery and restaurant was great. The food was delicious, wine was superb and setting one of the best in Franschhoek. Our b&b highly recommended this spot and I would totally agree. We had the poached pear salad and prosciutto wrapped Camembert for starters - both amazing. Then the beef fillet with roasted bone marrow... More
