Casual fine dining at its best. The menu was a little more complicated than our last visit, with a set five course tasting menu rather than the 6 courses (with options to choose from) we had previously. For a diverse and interesting experience, the tasting menu was a wonderful choice. The first/umami dish had raw oysters which was a strong... More

We had the tasting menu with the wine pairings. We have eaten here before and really enjoyed the meal. But, last nights experience was not the same . If we had not kept a copy of the menu we would not have known what we were eating as the food was just put in front of us with no explanation... More

Loved the food, the centre, the staff, and the menu had one of my seldom-seen favourites, ox-tripe. Wonderful, in a curry. Not inexpensive, but worth the price which is not outrageous. My friends had great food too, service excellent, wine fabulous as always in the Cape.

We were at the food barn last Friday. Both me and my partner love food and wine pairing and got really excited after seeing all the reviews. We had the tasting menu which was a 5 course with wine pairing. Unfortunately the courses were not as elegant and gastronomic as we hoped for, after 3 courses we we're completely stuffed.... More

You always get the good feeling here, fantastic service, food, wine and bubbles. The tasting menu is a mist try but also a la carte is great, very beautiful tasteful food :-) a place we always book before our visit every year. Thank you all of you at the foodbarn for your food and warm welcome :-)

Probably advisable to book, 'though we were lucky and got a table at 13:30hrs for lunch. No parking as the area was very busy so we found a place outside on the road. The starters of fish soup and battered prawns were ok. We both chose the fish of the day as our main course. We paid extra for veg... More

After being there 2 years ago there have been some alterations to the Deli which make it more cosy. We ordered a chicken wrap, calamari salad, prawn wrap, smoked salmon salad and a hamburger. Every one was happy with the food which was fresh and well presented. I also had a large cuppacino which was one of the best I... More

We nearly gave up on The Foodbarn restaurant as we had trouble finding it but thank goodness we didn't. My husband who is not a foody and never gets excited about restaurants has been telling everyone about this restaurant. It is very difficult to get into and we had to have a late table which is not what we like... More

The Foodbarn at Noordhoek village was interesting as it was recommended to me before I left the UK and it was by chance that I stumbled on it as driving through Noordhoek to avoid traffic back to Cape Town. The setup looked good so booked for a lunchtime treat a few days later. Parking was a problem so had to... More

We went peak season and were very very lucky to score a table, thanks to a cancellation. We were looked after so well by the staff and the venue was so beautiful, although the mirror on the ceiling was a little creepy. Aside from the appearance, the food and wine were superb and we enjoyed a romantic evening. The presentation... More
