Food
Chef Adriaan Maree may be on the shy side, but get him talking about sustainability and he’ll have you in a verbal headlock about his passion and future plans for Fermier. “I hope Fermier can be completely self-sustaining, so I’m creating an ‘ecosystem’ – from the fish and vegetables to the livestock – that suits our idea of responsible, conscientious farming, where even waste is turned into a functional part of the cycle,” he explains.

It’s a deceptively-simple sounding menu that lists only the key ingredients and the waitress explains everything in detail as the food is delivered. Standouts might include the perfectly pink trout with apple, radish and smoked butter; and a sweet and fleshy superbly cooked lobster offset by salty samphire and a tart hint of verjuice. An ending of apple with miso caramel, almonds and Earl Grey tie the whole experience together.

Drinks
Sommelier Loraine Magombo is on hand to help with the wine selection or suggest other suitable drinks. Often with wine-paired menus, the trepidation is always whether the combination will work or not and at Fermier the standard wine pairing is one of the few where the wine is notably enhancing to the overall flavour of the food.

Service
Immaculate. The all-female wait staff is attentive and courteous, with an impressive understanding of the innovative dishes.

Ambience
Rustic interior of exposed rafters, bare walls and tables scattered far from one another to create privacy between dining parties.

Best for…
All occasions – it’s one of Gauteng’s rarest gems.

    This was a treat from my boyfriend and boy was it amazing! I think it is by far my favourite degustation yet. When we got there we were greeted with bubbly which was a nice touch. We were seated close to the kitchen so we were thrilled to watch the prep and plating closely. Our waitresses were excellent. I really enjoyed the wine pairing mostly because of the info we received. And then the meals!! All that flavour and intensity really takes one to another level of happiness. There was such a variety of dishes prepared using different cooking methods that the textures of each dish were transformed out of the norm. So much attention and detail to the playing as well. I will definitely be going back once the menu has changed.
    First time at Fermier and cant wait to go back. An excellent experience. Decor smart in its simplicity. Service excellent. A fixed 9 course menu that exceeded our expectations. Presentation excellent. Food excellent. It was so good that we would have loved to start the whole 9 courses again if our tummies allowed it.
    My vocabulary will probably fail me in writing a review worthy of the experience my girlfriend and I had at Fermier. As we were seated, I knew we were in for a special evening... white linen napkins set off by a dark wooden table, with impecably clean glass and silverware, my design senses were tingling and I knew this was a special place. Neither E or I are fans of seafood, but on looking through the menu for the evening, we knew we'd need adventurous palates, and we were not disapointed. The Crayfish was incredible! All in all, the courses just seemed to get better and better. Occasionally looking over my shoulder, it was so cool to see the three chefs masterfully plating each dish on the most beautiful, probably specifically crafted, cermic plates. Our waitresses, Jennifer and Chantelle knew each dish well and recommended two beauitful white wines that both E and I will go out hunting to find again. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who has a love for attention to detail, an appreciation for design and a love of good food and wine. Fermier ticks all the boxes like very few other places can. Chapeau ladies and gentlemen on giving E and I an unforgettable experience!
    What a treat! Definitely worth a try! Loved every dish, most beautiful starter! Also did the wine pairing with and had a few interesting wines. There really isn't anything I can fault with the service or food. Staff where friendly and although the kitchen is in the dining area and open, it's wasn't too noisy and it was nice watching the masters create each delicious masterpiece. Please just put a few stepping stones in the walkway for ladies with heals and a few dimmed laterns would be beautiful beside the path. Thank you for a memorable evening!
    This was the most exceptional meal I've had in a long time. Incredible attention to detail, beautiful flavours and creativity in abundance. How is this restaurant not in the Top 10? A must visit. We will be back very soon. Ten out of ten.
