“Magnificent!”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

Big hell to the yeh! This winery and restaurant was great. The food was delicious, wine was superb and setting one of the best in Franschhoek. Our b&b highly recommended this spot and I would totally agree. We had the poached pear salad and prosciutto wrapped Camembert for starters - both amazing. Then the beef fillet with roasted bone marrow for mains - again big smack in the mouth delicious. Our waitress - Chantelle? was very friendly and accommodating. We even managed to get a wine tasting without an appointment. Would definitely go back. Very impressed!

“Absolutely best lunch/afternoon in Franschoek!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

My favourite restaurant and winery in Franscheok by a large margin. Wonderful food only barely outdone by the amazing view. Our short lunch turned in to an afternoon of food, wine and more food all while enjoying the breathtaking view.

We were also fortunate to have enjoyed a wine tasting and tour with one of the winemakers. It was quite a treat to share in his passion of winemaking.

“Must visit”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We stopped over here for lunch as a second choice, after our first choice restuarant was closed for renovations. But I will not make that mistake again.
Visiting this restuarant is an experience that you will not forget. The food is out of this world and the beautiful setting and scenary perfectly complements the meal.

“Spectacular view, lovely atmosphere, average food”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Le Petite Ferme really is set with superb views across the valley. It probably relies on this as the food wasn't as good as I would expect. Perhaps because we ate at Le Bon Vivant last night it was bound to seem average, and of course you expect lunch to be a more casual meal.

We went for Sunday lunch so it was very busy and buzzy. There are a lot of tables, which can be good and bad. We were seated by a table of loud obnoxious patrons. Away from them the atmosphere was really lovely. There were lots of families and groups of friends having a relaxed Sunday afternoon. People were sitting on the lawn drinking wine and chatting or playing with their children.

Our entrees (pear, walnut and gorgonzola salad; and proscuitto wrapped camembert) were both light and tasty. However, my husband's main of springbok was overcooked and lack lustre my fish cakes were low quality (another entree).

Prices are reasonable.

If you can get a table on the terrace that seemed like the best area to eat.
