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".

Trust the waitress!

After a busy day and an unhealthy lunch we felt like a healthy dinner... After another glass of wine the waitress said: I love salads when I go out and I believe we have some of the best salads around....she was right! Service great and food exactly what we were looking for!

Went there on a Sunday afternoon. We ordered a starter and mains. The waiter did not bring the starter, but did bring the mains. I mentioned this, and he was apologetic - but when he did eventually bring it, it was the wrong starter in any case, so we sent it back. I ordered the oxtail, which is supposed to... More

With a mission to test a new restaurant every couple of weeks, we left our safe haven restaurants and ventured out into the unknown. The unknown in this case was Barrique, at a wine farm I have ridden past many times. The atmosphere and decor is inviting and the service is really pretty good. Menu is a bit limited though... More

We took a party of 30 business pensioners to the restaurant, fortunately it was a magnificent Cape day, and we were seated at three round tables outdoors under the oak trees in a beautiful garden setting. A complimentary drink was on hand and was followed by a set menu of three courses, with choices, followed by tea/coffee. Food was excellent... More

One of Stellenbosch's underrated restaurants. Me and my family went their to celebrate my sisters birthday. We did not feel like going somewhere fancy and just wanted a good dinner and place where we could enjoy everyone's company. We made a reservation for a group of 7 and was seated at a round table which created a very nice atmosphere.... More

We had outdoor seating on a lovely spring day. Although the menu didn't have a lot of options and no banting option, we selected the lunch of the day, rump steak and oxtail. The food was well prepared and delicious and the Sunday lunch is a bargain for the price. The steak was superbly done. For desert the pavlova is... More

We went for dinner and was pleasantly surprised with the restaurant. The fire was burning which added to a cosy atmosphere. We had the Oxtail and Pork belly combo which was delicious. Excellent and friendly service.

Over the years I have visited Barrique many times. It would be safe to say that I have in excess of 100 Barrique meals under my belt and that is a very conservative estimate. Barrique has contributed substantially to my ever expanding waistline. The wonderful owners, Karin and Peter, and their friendly and highly efficient staff treat me like family... More
