Today we went for a lazy lunch at Foodbarn in Noordhoek, and it was divine! Food very nice and tasty, good flavors. My favourites were the fish (tuna) tartar with avo and fried mussels, and the super duper delicious petit bouillabaisse. Also the dessert was great, Summer berries and orange with a scoop of passion fruit ice cream. My love... More

Very good value for money and excellent service. Food is very good. The variety of food is good. There should be something for all tastes. Prices of wines are also reasonable. We are regular visitors for the tapas evenings. Tables are a bit small/crowded, if you have 4 people around the table and start ordering food.

Fresh, Mouth-watering bights of deliciousness. The setting - we sat outside - al fresco - was superb, with excellent service and a plethora of wines to select from. Dessert was a winner - to end the treats.

This is the perfect place to eat in a relaxed atmosphere and excellent food. It is mainly frequented by local people who clearly appreciate the freshness of the food. The service is very friendly and welcoming. Every time I go there on my annual visit to Cape Town I end up wishing there was somewhere close to where I live... More

Franke sure knows what he is doing at this gem of a restaurant. The menu is diverse and the wine list is comprehensive yet not too expensive. Try the pairing menu for a new experience if you have not already.

Overall a poor performance. We even asked the manager when the ownership had changed. There are other places to eat that are of a higher standard, more reasonably priced and have better service. Don't do it!

Delicious Tasting Menu with pairing wines for the complete table the best decision. More than enough options for every taste and good value for money.

My Brother kindly took our family on a night for the 'Fine Dining Experience'. Needless to say food barn was NOT this. I have been in Cheffing and catering for over a decade and understand the hardships but wow. We arrived at 7pm. It wasn't full. We got our first course at 9pm. That course (Fish Tartare) was delicious. Quite... More

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to complete your review of our restaurant. While it is never nice to receive feedback like this, it does provide us with an opportunity to rectify the situation. Since your dinner, we have tried twice to contact the gentleman who made the reservation and managed to speak to him a little earlier today.... More

It's been a while since my last visit to the restaurant and I was worried that perhaps dinner wouldn't live up to my memories (rose-tinted cutlery syndrome anyone?), but I'm happy to say our whole Christ,as Eve experience was superb. Every course was as wonderful as the next - but (and I'll whisper this bit), possibly too much food. I... More
