Nice atmosphere, friendly service but decor is a bit outdated - needs a revamp. Except for that, cosy and warm with the greatest starters and highly recommend the oxtail.

My husband treated me for Mother's Day at this, our favourite restaurant. It is situated against the background of the beautiful mountains around Stellenbosch. An almost "old fashioned" decor welcomes you and I had the feeling that I was in my mother's house. The service there is always efficient, quick, friendly and courteous. The flowers on the tables added to... More

We went out for dinner to the Barrique. The food was very delicious the waiters courteous. The Thai Chicken Curry, the Chicken salad and the pizza bread were excellent and the house wine fantastic.

I found Barrique to be a very good experience. Quint rustic decor, friendly efficient service and menu to suit all tastes at affordable price. I was offered a combination of pork belly and oxtail when I could not decide between the two. Both were really tasty and literally melt in the mouth. Snails as starter not so great. Others in...

I ordered a greek sald and mussels cooked the Thai way, but both were below standards. The mussels were thawed/deep frozen ones and the salad leafs were not very fresh either.The only positive remark I can make is that the service is very good and the comments I made on the food were not rejected as those of a difficult...

One of my favourite restaurants in the world. We have been going there for many years and have NEVER had a bad experience. Eclectic, homely atmosphere. The owners have a passion for making guests feel welcome and special, and they succeed brilliantly. The menu is varied, the food preparation faultless, the value for money tops. If you want a small... More

It is a very pleasant place for locals to dine on a Sunday for lunch... Very personal attention - and a varied and super menu... Very relaxed atmosphere - winter or summer.

Not often does one find a delicious 'bord kos'. (Sunday roast like Mom used to make). If that's your desire you'll not find better. The lamb was really good and no fewer than three starches, all favourites, and well prepared. A no frills good experience. I imagine many of the diners were regulars.
