Great food at reasonable prices

We had dinner at the Foodbarn restaurant and were truly impressed by the level of service and quality of the food. I ordered the bouillabaisse, entree, the tuna(rare), main and the chocolate terrine, dessert. They were all incredibly tasty dishes and exquisitely presented. The standout for the evening would have to be the stone fruits and berries, squashed verbena marshmallow,... More

I'm trying to be fair here; although I've rated this establishment as 'Very Good' and say that I (we) will revisit - the jury, frankly, is still out. Perhaps my appetite wasn't as sharp as it might have been - we'd had lunch (indifferent pasta) down on the V&A Watefront earlier in the day. But we were meeting friends for... More

We had the pairing menu. Quite a good selection and four courses was more than enough. For the expense, though, I'd not say the food was first rate. Overall it was a lot heavier, with cream, than we're used to these days. The monkfish was rather bland, and the sauce didn't help - it was also, for my taste, much... More

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 your plate. We were very happy... 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
