Tranquility Awaits at The Farm
When Team Ahlan! were asked to go and eat at the farm, we were expecting to see some of Old McDonald’s friends, but we pleasantly surprised with the hidden location.
Situated opposite Falcon City in Al Barari Villas, is the lush green oasis of The Farm. The drive through the jungle-like surroundings is an experience in itself, but the The Farm is a sight for sore eyes.
One of the most striking things about The Farm is the design of the building. The restaurant wouldn’t be out of place in Manhattan or trendy SoHo with its indoor and outdoor facilities fused together to create an exceptional open and relaxed atmosphere.
Wood decking, sprawling sofas and hammocks are set up to make diners feel relaxed and the casual dress code only adds to the feeling of calm. Ordering the food couldn’t be easier thanks to iPads that scroll through the menu and actually show you what they have on offer.
Inspired by the Zaal family vision to make Al Barari more than a residential community, The Farm’s 80-seat restaurant is surrounded by green lawns and natural gardens and also offers customers the opportunity to dine outdoors on the deck, suspended over the lake.
The Farm selects only the finest ingredients in the preparation of its food, most of which are locally grown and organic. The on-site bakery produces a delightful array of freshly baked breads and pastries daily and a selection of essential organic groceries.
The Farm’s philosophy is “to serve great quality, wholesome food the way nature intended, in a relaxed and tranquil setting.” Mission accomplished.
