We booked for lunch months in advance from England. Unlike some restaurants they did not want credit card details in advance. When we arrived we had a wonderful table by the window in the glass covered area with nice views of the garden. We ate here on our last SA visit and it was as good as ever. The staff were wonderful and the food simply delicious. The choice of wines (their own) were selected on the advice of the Soumellier, and were perfect. I rate this the best and nicest restaurant in Franschhoek. Its lunch only, and booking is essential.

After driving franschoek Pass we thought the petite ferme would be a great stop for lunch,I went in asked if they had a table for four persons ,no we are fully booked inside and out! was the abrupt reply I recieved .it was quite frankly not reply that offended me but the way it was said
They should remember that you are judged upon the response the consumer receives,they may be busy now but on this attitude they will not be for long
AVOID this arrogant establishment
I shall return to the UK and tell everyone what a rude establishment this has become

Lucky to find a table at short notice as this is one of a handful of top restaurants in the Franschoek area. The views of the valley & nice weather ! A good day to be on vacation.
Toilets need some TLC *

Booked the day before so were inside plus with children so , as ever given the worst table ( restaurants would do well not to do this ! ) however the situation was spectacular. The food could have even been bad and it would have been a good experience for the view alone. However the food was good ( not great) service timely and the wine delicious
