Its like nothing u have had flavours fit so well and paired with drinks flavours burst in your mouth loved every minute of the evening food is incredible well done guys you are spot on !
Entry to this place just bring calmness and optimism to he night.!looking forward to the rest of the night . Last time I was here had a ball.
Delicious!!! The staff was great, friendly and the food exceeded expectations by far. We loved the personal feel of seeing the chefs prepare the food, it creates a great intimate feel that we appreciated. Loved it!
First off, let's begin with the setting; it's stunning! Tucked away from all the hustle and bustle of Lynnwood, you are guided up a dark path through the trees lit only by candlelight and the torch of a staff member. Eventually you reach the almost barn-like structure of the restaurant which gives a warm and rustic atmosphere perfect for the location! It's really a great introduction and that definitely deserves 5 stars.
But what you really want to read about is the food, right? Overall it was devine! There were one or two courses where the flavour combinations did not work so well for me and definitely needed some improvement. The cheese was the main dish in question, it was far too salty and could've really done with some sweetness to counter the sharpness of the cheese.
Another area that let down the restaurant was our waiter, he didn't know the menu and couldn't explain the dishes to us at all. I expect a restaurant of this caliber to have trained it's staff thougrougly before letting them onto the floor.
Our sommelier on the other hand was superb! Her knowledge and passion for the wines was incredible and with me being a wine-lover myself, I really appreciated having someone like that to talk to and learn from.
These are the reasons why I gave Fermier a 4 star overall score. It was really great in some areas, but heavily let down in others. Overall though, I still feel like it's well worth the visit and it will be a very special evening!
I went to Fermier on 13 Feb 2018 with my husband. I was so impressed that they prepared a special menu for my Pesco-vegan dietary requirements. That doesn’t happen often and it says a lot about their service levels. The food was absolutely delicious and the presentation was wonderful. Thank you!
I LOVED this place!! WOW WOW WOW. Awesome!! Please come here if you are an adventurous foodie on a special occasion!! They have a seasonal menu, with 10courses and wine pairing! Its incredible! The pairing with the wines and food are Superb the staff know their stuff!! And I actually dont have words!! Just come here if you get the chance.

Speechless. What an amazing experience.
If your a foodie this a unique experience. Perfect for a date night. Unfortunately words can't explain how delicious each one of the nine tasting plates was. You need to experience this first hand.
Fascinating location, modern decor with open kitchen. The foods is pretty much fine dining. We took the wine pairing and it was an excellent choice. Presentation superb and food was absolutely delicious
What a gem, hidden off-road and you could miss it as no signage outside, we asked the security outside Harly and they know as it as the farm restaurant!
Once you find it, park and you escorted threw a gravel sandy path to a wooden shed with a tin roof, tip don't wear heels. It's a simple setup with wooden tables and chairs, at your front your chefs prepare your meals in an open mini arena. Dinner times are set for 19:00 and 19:30 by reservation only.
The menu is a set 9 course with option of wine pairing. The idea is that they try to grow and farm everything and aim to be a fully self sustainable restaurant. What followed was absolute perfection. The wait staff a team of 5 were on the ball, knowledgeable on each course, friendly and attentive. The chefs(3) although working in front of you are almost silent and are pushing away preparing each meal.
The start of canepes and breads definitely set the tone for whats to follow. Beautifully plated morsels of food, plated artfully and flavour combinations of note. We had requested a non beef option and were accomadated with a lamb replacement. All dishes were equally delicious and well paired. Timing of each course on point. Menus change seasonaly and you leave feeling not overly full but satisfied. A great fine dining experience.
What a great little place. I actually never heard of it before the day I went there for dinner and I was absolutely amazed! Excellent food, wine, service and ambiance. Such a unique place in Pretoria.
