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.

Had an amazing lunch at this place, the old styled menus are great! Food was superb and the inside garden was really nice. Hidden gem :)

We had a fantastic mid-week meal at Noop. We ordered from the Specials Menu; I had the Springbok loin and it was perfectly prepared with the most divine sauce. It was served with Parmesan, gnocchi and mushrooms - the different tastes and textures complemented each other splendidly. My husband had the Sirloin steak prepared Asian style and was just as...

Seven of us celebrated my friend, Bev's, birthday at Noop on evening of 8 November. What a lovely evening. Ambiance, service and food was awesome. Our waiter was really helpful explaining the specials, pouring drinks timeously and just generally gave us good attentive service without hovering over us.

The winelist, quirky decor and service were excellent, and the prices were reasonable for the high quality of the food. I'd definitely go again!

This restaurant in #2 in Paarl based on Trip Advisor ratings. We enjoyed the food thoroughly however the service was not up to both the food quality and the reputation. No bread delivered to the table, specials of the day not brought to our table and we ordered a salad for the table, charged for and not delivered. This was... More

Outstanding Food, Excellent Service, Beautiful Décor, Ideal Location, Lovely Vibe. The restaurant was fully booked and always appears to be so from Wednesday's to Saturday's. We were thus accommodated on the veranda, which was really pleasant. Lovely experience.
