Description: Welcome to Noop. We hope you feel at home here, because that is how we think of our restaurant. After all, we spend more time here than we do at our homes. Our beautiful heritage building breathes warmth and hospitality. We know many of our guests by name; some of them have become our friends.As for us, we were customers before we became owners. Noop was established in 2005, and we had an affinity for the restaurant when we took it over in 2012. It's still as popular with returning locals as it is with visiting tourists, and we've kept everything people love about it while also making it our own. There's plenty for you to choose from, and we're sure that you'll find something you like. The meals are all fresh and so is the inspiration on our specials board. If you have special requests, we'll try our best to accommodate them. Whatever you order, you can enjoy it knowing that we make the same kind of food here as we do at home. Unpretentious. Often spontaneous. Always delicicious.

My wife and I were recommended to this restaurant as being one of the best in Paarl. It certainly lived up to expectations. We arrived without a reservation, quite early in the evening, but as Noop is very popular, many tables were already reserved. JJ took charge of finding us a delightful table in the rear garden, under the trees... More

I have eaten here a couple of times and the food is always good. The chocolate box as a desert option is deadly.....

I am almost embarrassed to say that even though I am a Bolander through and through, I visited Noop for the first time today for a (late!) lunch, and it was absolutely wonderful. I had a yummy Asian inspired beef fillet stir-fry for starters and an absolutely delicious piece of kingklip with a sweet potato and carrot mash, perfectly cooked... More

Not a large menu but enough variety. Only a few vegetarian options but I had the Wild Mushroom Risotto which was lovely. My husband had the tempura prawn starter and... More

Having visited Noop on our last two holidays to Paarl and been really impressed we were a bit disappointed on our latest visit. We had booked a table for dinner and were told by a very friendly lady at lunchtime, who we assume was the manageress, that we were welcome to choose where we wished to sit. so we chose... More
