This place is so beautiful, I always feel so peaceful when we go here and the food is always great! Even on weekends it's a lovely place as a whole to take my girls.

2 Friends go and eat on The Deck at Irene Dairy Farm. The 2 friends get upset tummies. I struggled for a whole week with my tummy and so did my friend. The manager said that they will test the food and then after more than 10 days my friend had to ask them for the outcome of the tests... More

The setting is superb but the food is really pricey. They say you are going to wait a while and boy oh boy, they are not lying. I had the flapjack stack. 3 freshly made flapjacks - Maple flavoured syrup with thick cream. R49.95. I added 2 slices of grilled bacon and a small amount of grated cheddar cheese and... More

A really nice setting on the dairy farm with nice views onto the farm. Food was good although nothing exceptional. Food is a bit slow to arrive but they do warn you that everything is made fresh so make sure you are not in a hurry. Service was good and friendly.

The setting was beautiful and serene with nature surrounding the restaurant. Our waitress was attentive and very friendly. We ordered our food and drinks and it came within five minutes of ordering. Very good service and stunning service.

A very different restaurant from the Barnyard also on the Irene Diary farm. Good food, a few less options but still very flexible. We enjoyed it tremendously !

You kind of expect food at this kind of venue to be fresh, crisp and tasty. It felt like the food came from the 90s, and considering the temperature of the food when it arrived, it may have. The chicken pie had a stray hair baked in to it. We sent it back and they were very apologetic (and we... More

After sitting down and ordering our food (Chicken Pot Pie and Chicken Curry ) we waited and waited and waited for 45 minutes. Our waiter Salome was nowhere to be seen and I eventually asked one of the ladies (with glasses) to assist us. She managed to get our order after another 15 minutes however we never saw her again...

We ate lunch there and waited 45 minutes for our food - my husband ordered a club sandwich and the presentation was disgusting - my quiche got burned so they had to start again and when it arrived it was really tasteless... Send it back and didn't pay for it - no one really apologised... Will not go there again... More

We had a lovely summer lunch here. The service is attentive and the setting tranquil. Food was good and fresh. My only complaint is that it is very busy and really noisy.

Thank Reenwoud
