I finally managed to get a rare day off with the girls, so we decided to go out for lunch and try somewhere new. On a recommendation of a friend we headed out to The Farm, in Al Barari. Once we finally managed to get there (making a few u-turns along the way and with a big help from google maps!) we were greeted by lots of luscious greenery, trees and plants everywhere. The restaurant itself is located pretty much in the middle of the desert, but they’ve planted so much that it looks like you’re in an oasis or on a tropical island somewhere. Image

We ordered our food and got very excited at the prospect of sweet potato fries, however the service was extremely slow, so we ended up waiting over 45 minutes for our food to arrive. Once it finally did, it was delicious. We did have to ask for a couple of things and each time it took them a long time to bring it, even though there were a lot of waiters hanging around! On the other hand, when we went to pay our bill, they were there in about 30 seconds!

We discovered some small but extremely comfy hammocks and lay in those for a while letting our lunch digest!
