What a disappointment! My fiance and I (french) were really disappointed in the quality and the service. The baguette served with the duck terrine was completely undercooked, in fact I wouldn't even call it baguette at all. It's way overpriced for what is in the plate (very little and no major excitement). We decided to leave dessert and coffee for... More

Dear reviewer, You came very late in the day with your partner and expected to have everything on the menu for lunch, and as it turned out we did. As you well know,since you're a local, most places on Mt Tambourine stop serving after 2:30pm. - I personally served you as my wait staff had finished; we had a very... More

I'm very happy that I can enjoy French food during my trip in Australia. Isabelle showed me her great French cooking skill. Foie Gras with Brioche was very delicious. Now I'm back in Hong Kong, still missing Isabelle's food!

Thank you for your review. We remember you well as my staff complained about your antagonistic and rude attitude, particularly from your teenage son. Our portions are constant and no one seems to have left our restaurant hungry until you came. The day you came, it was 40 C outside and the smoothie I prepared had ice in it. I... More

Upon entry we were made to feel most welcolme and then drinks arrived promptly. Lunch was a seven course amazing spread and we enjoyed every bite and morsel from the Duck Fole Gras that I chose and the Marie Rose Lobster that my husband chose as entree to the roast Turkey with all the wonderful trimmings.

This year we decided to have Christmas lunch at a Restaurant. No cooking in the heat, no planning, and best of all no cleaning up! After researching the restaurants on Tamborine Mountain that were doing Christmas lunch, we chose La Ferme Provencale. We booked for the 7 course lunch at 2.30. We were welcomed and seated immediately on arrival. Our... More

We approached the restaurant with some skepticism about the authenticity of its 'frenchness' but were left very impressed. Food was definitely very good, though selection was not very wide. Wine and desserts were also excellent. But the best part is the hospitality and good service of the restaurant staff who were always friendly and made sure that our needs were... More
