Critic's review

Jackie Cameron

Food
The restaurant menu includes brunch, lunch and dinner. Start with the three egg and spears. It includes grilled asparagus served with a soft-poached egg, soft boiled egg and Hollandaise sauce, balanced with cold, smoked trout. Lunch has a biker feel - think bursting burgers, fried hake, Chinese sticky-pork ribs and the King Caesar salad. Dish descriptions are delightful: Big-Boep pork belly and Lady-Boss salad. For dinner the falling-off-the-bone oxtail, with loads of red wine and fresh herbs comes highly recommended. Remember to leave space for a super-generous slice of mouth-watering carrot cake.

Drinks
Well-trained baristas create a delicious, creamy-textured, cappuccino served at the correct temperature. The cold-pressed juices are genuinely fresh. Choices include pineapple, rose, beetroot, carrot, apple and ginger. Alcoholic beverages are reasonably priced.

Service
The restaurant’s selection of authentic country fare and the friendly-yet-competent team have put this popular Midlands dining venue firmly on KwaZulu-Natal’s culinary map. Expect appropriate, courteous service - happy hospitality.

Ambience
I enjoy the upstairs seating that overlooks mesmerising vistas of the Umgeni Valley. Interesting artefacts, from cutlery and crockery to chairs and tables – that must have come from ouma’s home - help enhance the casual farmhouse vibe.

  • My oh my. Never have I come across such a restaurant. The food and decor is so unique. Everything from sauces to ice-cream is made from scratch using fresh, local ingredients. The menu itself is an exciting read with quirky descriptions. The management, waiters and waitresses are friendly and want to make sure you are as happy as could be. The view is so beautiful too But when the food comes. That is when everything in the world could fall apart without me batting an eyelid. All items were made to perfection and I have never tasted such delight in my mouth. So flavorful, ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS BEYOND WORDS and generous portions leaving my stomach smiling in pure delight. Since having gone here I am no longer as satisfied with food at other restaurants. Not that other restaurants don't produce good food. But The Farmer's Daughter produces GREAT food. The coffee is also better than I had had anywhere else before. One can tell that the baristas are well trained and know what they are doing. My husband and I have now developed a habit of rearranging our entire day to go here when we get that "Farmers- Daughter-craving" look upon our faces that nothing else can quite satisfy.
