Quiet tapas bar (opposed to Spain!) with (small) tapas menu, bust so, so tasty! I think, better than in Barcelona! Very knowledgeable waitress, not overbearing, and so friendly

The cuisine is exceptional, with fresh ingredients creatively combined and imaginatively served. The Foodbarn restaurant = fine lunches & dinners with kids and dogs and, maybe, bare feet

After a visit to many great restaurants the past month, our last meal together with all the family from overseas, were at the Foodbarn in Noordhoek. What a treat! Our waiter, Daniel was knowledgeable about everything on the menu and although you could not go wrong with anything on the menu (between the 7 of us, we covered basically all... More

Came for dinner. The only way to describe it is... Amazing. Atmosphere was warm and cosy with a touch of elegance. Everyone was very helpful and the service was perfect and friendly. The food was amazing. Starter was the best starter I have ever had. Main course was very good too. And the dessert was to die for. Not a... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch recently while staying in Cape Town. It is quite a way out of the city, but well worth making the trip. Everything about it stood out from the crowd: the warm welcome, great food and wine and the exceptional service. As the 'winter special' offers 50% off the food items on the a la... More

I have heard great reviews from friends on the Foodbarn Deli tapas - and it did not disappoint! Booked a table for an early Friday night catch up with a friend. We arrived at 6 and left at 9. We enjoyed a bottle of Cabernet Franc which the restaurant has bottled - good value at R135 and it complimented the... More

We had a long leisurely lunch at the Foodbarn and everything - from the food, ambiance, decor and service - was absolutely perfect and delicious. The Foodbarn is a casual and rustic French-Influenced eatery offering creative cuisine with international influences, as well as wine pairings.

 The food was extraordinary; everything from the Petite Bouillabaisse, the Prawn fritters, the sustainable fish,... More

We stopped for lunch with out a reservation, and were accommodated with a smile at a good table. The food was really beautifully plated with delicious tastes to match. The style is loosely French Provencal with a modern touch. We loved it. The wine list was broad, but we chose the wine pairing on offer. The 2 course lunch with... More

We went for a late lunch and had forgot to make reservations, even though they were fully booked, they went out of their way to accommodate us and got us a spot within 15 mins! The food and service were phenomenal, on top of the super simple and cozy ambiance. Perfect winter gem.
