Very good lunch, not so good dinner

Arrived during the week for a lunch, very nice outdoor seating available. Gets very busy, but we arrived early so no need for a reservation. Made our 3 course lunch menu, with two starters and one main, had a special of with 50% off - highly recommended. Tasty food and very nice presentation on... read more

In a part of South Africa that is full of excellent restaurants this one is a stand out. A chef who know his stuff, whose enthusiasm for his craft is evident in the superb dishes that are served. An excellent dinner - is it french is a question posed on this page. Answer: no it is far better. A short... More

We had been to the Foodbarn before at a much busier time of the year and thought it was pretty good. This time - with only slightly more customers than staff, mid-afternoon in March - the service was slow and the waiting staff just couldn't be bothered. The salad bar, which we had planned to have, looked pretty unappealing. We... More

Probably the 5th or 6th visit to this fine establishment.Menu was different from the last experience with strong accent on seafood. Service was friendly and efficient, wine list good . Food was beautifully plated and tasted even better. Definitely to be recommended.

I've long been a fan of the Foodbarn Restaurant and return regularly, but had never tried the Tapas evenings at the Foodbarn Deli - a massive oversight on my part, it turns out. What a brilliant evening we had. The service is warm, friendly and really helpful. The ambiance of the restaurant is laid-back and cosy, the wine selection, including... More

This was my second visit to the Foodbarn and it wasn't a super experience. The service is friendly and our waitress was very good at describing dishes, but it was quite slow - there were a few times we assumed we'd been forgotten about! My food was underwhelming - the bouillabaise in particular was disappointing. There was a fishy flavour... More

The vegetarian starter, ravioli, was blend and I did not like the combination. But, as that can be a matter of taste, I looked forward to my main, a vegetarian porcini risotto. The waitress asked if we wanted to order a palate cleanser, we did not want to, and she seemed offended. Are you sure?, she insisted . the risotto... More

The pork belly was dry and tough, portions are smaller and prices are up... Overall it was ok to average... So we all left disappointed knowing what we had experienced before.. Service... More

I am a difficult person to please when it comes to food. The Foodbarn is one of these germs you find in the middle of nowhere that will leave a forever memory tasting experience. The building is nothing else than a big tatch house, the deco is nothing more than a lichen "Live, Love, Life" atmosphere, the location is in... More
