Our 4-course fine dining experience served each evening is our aim to combine farm hospitality with elegant farm food. We feature seasonal and local ingredients. We also cater for special dietary requirements like vegan, vegetarian, food allergies etc. Private dining rooms are available with prior reservation.

“I have access to wonderful ingredients that arrive in our kitchen from different sources; bought at the fresh produce market, sourced at different suppliers or plainly from the local butcher. All the wonderful produce gets studied, smelled, touched, appreciated and respected before we start to transform them. Only then can they be approached with humility.” – Marie Lombard

At lunch, we invite you to indulge in a curated 3-course meal that takes you on a journey through the farm’s bounty. Begin with an appetizer that sets the stage – perhaps a salad bursting with crisp greens and herbs picked that very morning. Move on to a main course where the succulence of our farm-raised lamb or other local specialties takes center stage, accompanied by perfectly paired wines that enhance the experience. 

Elegance meets authenticity in every bite, as our culinary team crafts dishes that showcase the simplicity and purity of farm food. Desserts are a sweet finale, featuring seasonal fruits and delicate pastries that bring the meal to a delightful close. 

The wine pairing is an integral part of our lunch experience, with each glass thoughtfully selected to complement the flavors of the dishes. Whether you’re a connoisseur or a casual enthusiast, our curated wine list elevates your lunch to a sensorial delight.
