Restaurant Barrique opened at Vredenheim in 1998 and is an oasis of traditional cuisine in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands. This venue is ideal for enjoying our a la carte menu in a Historic Cape Dutch setting surrounded by the Helderberg Mountains. We also specialise in small functions, wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions in the Cellar venue. En-route you will see zebra, gems buck, ostriches and also the pizza chimney smoke lazily above the trees, before you get to the rustic eatery with its indoor "rietdak". This is a friendly, family affair especially on Sundays with families enjoying our food and gardens.

Service good in peaceful garden setting. Oxtail and line fish were both ok, nothing special but reasonably good for the price. Certainly not on my recommendation list.

I was recommended this place by our guest house. We did not go with high expectations, but we did expect good good and a pleasant atmosphere. We sat outside and decided the plastic bags hanging from the trees to keep the flies away were functional. We didn't mind the very, very drunk man wandering around what seemed to be the... More

The spot where the restaurant is located is actually very beautiful. Unfortunately the menu as well as the Wine list are not great. Service is ok, they are trying their best. If you want simple food and are not looking for culinary experience you can go here.

The snoek spring rolls were fabulous, as was the thai green curry. The fish was ok. A pleasant garden to sit in and a stunning garden and mountain scenery behind the restaurant, which is in the Vredenheim wine estate.

Restaurant Barique never disappoints. Whether it's dinner for 2 or 20 the quality of food and service is always good. The atmosphere and decor is elegant and comfortable. The menu is always the same consistent and good.
