“Amazing environment until u interact with staff and taste the food!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Atmosphere: Beautiful lush greenery and a Bali feel. I have to admit that it's nice. The only negative is the sound of AC and the maintenance guys hammering away on the terrace on a Friday morning while you have your breakfast.

Service was terrible. Other than the hostess, the staff don't have any personality. It took forever to come and take our order. It took forever to receive our food. It all came at once and 1/2 of it was cold. Some items never came yet it was still on bill.

I had beans that look worse than those you see in a show served in a prison. Picture attached.

The scrambled eggs were perfectly cooked and really good.

Service was very bad even throughout. Additional orders, missing table naps, attention to client, all very bad.

This is really sad because this place had the potential to be an amazing venue.

Value, AMEX card holders get 20% discount.

“chill out and zen athmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I visited The Farm last night with a couple of friends. What a great place for a delicious dinner and a chat. The place is like a botanicall garden, gives a very relaxing feeling. Our waiter Patrick was friendly and very knowledgable on the menu. Food was outstanding. Will deffinetly return for lunch or breakfast soon. Job well done, The Farm.

“Beautiful place ruined by poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

The region is very nice & far from the city... you feel like you're not in Dubai when you see so much greenery and plants it's gorgeous! The restaurant itself is very cute and fresh and you certainly need to reserve beforehand as it's always full!

Food was good in general except for one plate of chicken which was under-cooked.

The service, however, is really poor and super slow and the staff is under qualified.

* Their glasses smelled so make sure you ask for paper cups.

“Lush surroundings, nice food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

The food served here is good, but not amazing. The restaurant stands out because of its nice green surroundings and quiet terrace area. I found it a really enjoyable change from the steel and glass feel of many places in Dubai.

A lot of reviewers mention bad service. We did not experience this at all. Not that they were exceptionally good, but certainly not rude.

One of us had a birthday and when we told them the whole staff came out singing happy birthday, with a delicious cheesecake for us to share! Nice touch.

“Amazing atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful place, great atmosphere. Food is nice but not outstanding. Service (as most places in Dubai) was ok. Perfect to go before the heat of the summer! Completely different from the
Luxury places in Dubai. We couldn't say we are in Dubai!
