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.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Highly recommended. This young couple have an incredible restaurant, lovely ambience, superb service and friendliness although not over the top, and the food exquisitely presented and fantastic to the palate. Our duck and lamb shank dishes were excellent.
A must for any visitors to Paarl. Zian you are a budding star!!!!!!

“I've been Nooped !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

I've recently returned to Dublin from a three week holiday in South Africa. I was extremely fortunate to discover Noop in my first few days there. From our first visit all five of us decided this was THE place to eat and it effectively became our "local". The food was to die for and never failed to wow us. Every plate of food was obviously a labour of love in the kitchen and so beautifully presented and so delicious. The ambience was great and the place was buzzing with a lovely cosy , warm and welcoming atmosphere. I was really impressed by the owners who circulated and spoke to all the guests and are a delightful couple. Noop is a must go to restaurant for any foodie. I'm so looking forward to many return visits.

“Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

It didn't seem like a nice restaurant at first, they took us to a table at the back for some reason but the food was nice. Big portions.

“Oh Duck Oh Duck!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Can I begin by saying that Noop is very special.
It is owned and run by two young dynamic chefs and has good food, ambience and service to boot.
The duck is exquisite and by this I mean the French can come and learn a thing or two about Le Canard from Chef Zian.
Heavenly specials and desserts rock!!!! This Paarl establishment is one to watch. 10/10
