A friendly pre-arrival call set the tone for personal attention received on arrival and seating. Appreciated the encouragement to refresh with delicious drinks and settle in before having to make those calls from their full menu if the day. Not easy, with the inventive flavours and touches within each dish. But we felt great delight and satisfaction consuming each chosen plate - and of course sharing samples. A spot-on day out in authentic heritage meets nouveau style, set in gentle green hectares to walk. Treasured then and in memory. Wow! Thanks to the team for all that, wrapped in great stories and taking our pics.

About The Farm Eatery

The Farm Eatery at Diemersdal


The Farm Eatery is a place where you can enjoy the flavours of the countryside and the relaxing farm ambience in an old stable, restored with care by the Louw family, where they’ve been making wine for six generations. Here locally grown and regionally sourced produce inspire Chef Martin De Kock to blend his classical French training with the flavours of Provencal France, Spain and a touch of Asia. The herbs and some of the vegetables are from the kitchen garden, the preserves and pickles home-made, and the bread freshly baked. A balance of traditional roots and tantalising countryside cuisine mixed with homely farm vibes, and edgy cooking. That’s how we roll.












Meet Martin














The Head Chef & Proprietor






Born in Pretoria, and schooled in Durbanville, Chef Martin de Kock originally had his sights set on a legal career and was accepted as a law student at Stellenbosch University. His mother encouraged his passion for great cuisine and swayed him to turn his talent for cooking into a professional career. And so, Martin went on to attend the prestigious Institute for Culinary Arts (ICA) in Stellenbosch.






Whilst studying, Chef Martin did practical stints at leading Cape restaurants, including the Green House at Cellars-Hohenhort in Constantia, and Overture in Stellenbosch. Chef Martin also worked at Jordan Restaurant under Chef George Jardine before moving to Diemersdal in 2014, where he has been Head Chef since its inception, establishing The Farm Eatery as one of the most popular culinary destinations in the Cape Town Winelands.
