“A place not to miss, when you are in Cape Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2010

I love La Petite Ferme, A must when you are on your winetour or for a nice lunch.
Perfect view in Franschoek Valley, nice outside area.
Great food. I wasn't so blown away from the desserts, but the ice cream was better as in Italy.
Also coffee could be better, that is anyway a MINUS in a lot of good wine farms.
But still my favorite place in Franschoek.

“Great food in breathtaking surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2010

This is a lovely place in an outstanding setting. The food is excellent and great value. The only disappointment is that being a small estate they run out of their own wines which can limit your choice.

“Better than Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

Absolutely world-class lunch, wine, and service in the most stunning glass-front restaurant on the hillside overlooking Franschhoek - Sauvignon Blanc/Viognier blend best I've tasted. Shiraz right up there. Food presentation, quality and value exceptional. The wine-maker even takes the time to meet each table of diners individually - nice touch.

“Wonderful meal - comparable to the best ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2010

At first I was a little worried when our guide brought us here - I was thinking it might be a touristy place with wine. I couldn't have been more wrong! There were mostly South African's eating at tables around us. Our lunch (main and dessert) was exceptional! The wine was excellent!

Next time I go to Cape Town I'm going to stay in the wine country for a night or two and La Petite Ferme is going to be on the itinerary! Maybe we'll even stay there!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2010

having eaten at the restaurant on many occassions we returned to the restaurant to experience Friday night special of two courses and a half carafe of wine for R100 each.
The food was cold ,service terrible .on Writing to the Owner he agreed that the food was not up to scratch and the service was bad ,but it was not the usual staff on as it was a cheap night and not the usual standard offered .So look out you get what you pay for
