I have been hearing great reviews about The Farm for years now and today, I gave in. It so happens that it’s my birthday today so I decided to dress up a little which is not really necessary as the place is casual but several ladies were wearing pretty dresses as well so I didn’t feel out of place.
The Farm is located at Al Barari in Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Road, formerly Emirates Road. It was a delight to had the 2 kilometer drive through dense bush as soon as we enter the Al Barari compound. We easily found the restaurant and parking is ample.
I strongly suggest that you book a table in advance to avoid disappointment. I booked online 2 days earlier and it was quick and easy. I requested for seat near the window which I realized was unnecessary as the place is really bright because of the glass walls.
Really amazing ambiance.
I’m not sure why I wasn’t hungry. I think I got so excited with the scenery and getting great photos, I can’t concentrate on eating. So although the main courses were really appetizing, I decided to skipped it and just ordered several starters.
Bruschetta. Roasted bread rubbed with garlic and topped with select greens and tomotoes. The photo on the menu shows two piece of bread with generous amount of topping. But the actual serving was humongous. Not that I’m complaining, it’s actually good. This could be considered as a main meal.
We will definitely come back once the weather turns cooler and we’re excited to try their breakfast. The place is really an oasis in desert.
Here’s a short video on how much fun we had!
