The drive via marvellous Chapmans Peak was a perfect introduction to the superb food The baked Ravioli with wild mushrooms is very special and my risotto was just perfect We finished off with...

Very pleasant, relaxed ambience for a fine dining experience. The food was amazing - the Bouillabaisse soup was delicately flavoured and really tasty. The brownie which was recommended by a young student was definitely the best I have tasted in a very long while. The waiter was so confident that this would be an excellent choice he was willing to... More

Very good selection of very fresh and delicious food. Very helpful and friendly staff, was a pleasure to eat here after a dreadful experience across the grass at Cafe Roux. Would recommend if going to noordhoek farm eat at the foodbarn.

An expensive (in season) restaurant offering top quality French-style cuisine. Too pricy for local people during high season. Affordable to overseas patrons due to the weak ZARand. For locals the winter promotions are affordable. The quality is consistent always. The owner/master chef is a legend. The occasional food demos are a "must do".

We were treated with little respect by the staff. While there were multiple empty tables on the ground floor, and multiple groups were being seated, we were made to wait for 10-15 minutes at the bar for a table, then taken upstairs to an area where tourists were hidden away. The food was better than in most restaurants, but being... More

Resturant with stunning ambiance and even better food matching the best of the best SA has to offer. Well informed and friendly waiters. Arguably the best of the deep south!

We were treated to a delightful dinner here, once again, by our hospitable guesthouse hosts, who have become dear friends. We come on a 90 day visitor visa every year and enjoy fine dining throughout the Cape Town area. We had been here before, but had recently shied away because it is a bit pricey. So...this time we appreciated it... More

For most people this is not just round the corner. But it really is a fine restaurant. I love everything about it: from the service to the food, wine and ambience. The food is modern European with a local twist. And delicious. The tasting menu is linked with wines and a good choice. Not cheap but worth every Rand.
