Excellent meal - interesting menu : fresh ingredients , well cooked without trying to be over elaborate. Cheesecake to die for. Staff charming and professional. Views from the terrace of the evening sunset were stunning.

This restaurant is one of the nicest one and although it's more fine dining the atmosphere is very relaxed. The food was exquisite and would most likely recommend the slow cooked lamb! The good food with wine, together with the amazing view from the terrace is definitely one of the most wonderful restaurants I've been to.

I first visited La Petite Ferme in 2003 and returned after 16 years to find the food just as wonderful and the service just as good as I remembered. But it's the view that you just can't beat. The lawn at La Petite Ferme plus a bottle of wine is simply magical.

We went for a late lunch on a sunny Sunday afternoon. My wife had the goat cheese and greens starter and I had the fish cakes. Both were prepared nicely and had a nice presentation. The entrees were slow in getting to the table unlike the starters. My wife had the pasta, mushroom, pecorino cheese and lovely spices and I... More

My wife and I recently revisited this restaurant for our 5th wedding anniversary after a very memorable experience a couple years ago. Unfortunately, we won't go back. Both the lamb and duck were rather stale and not very tasty. I feel bad writing this review as the hostess and waitresses were just wonderful. Food service was also quite slow but... More
