Stopped here for lunch on our way down to see the penguins. The service was fantastic, the decor was country lux and the food was delicious. A perfect place for brunch or lunch.

Although the atmosphere and service are good, the food was a total disappointment. It seemed as though Franc, who's culinary reputation we went to experience, was not on duty. Vegetables soggy and buttery, sirloin mediocre and overall disappointing.

For starters we had a prawn and avocado stack which was outstanding, followed by a rack of lamb which was the tenderest, tastiest lamb I've ever eaten.

At the Foodbarn Restaurant, we serve the food that Franck is famous for … delicious and decadent ‘fine-dining’ style food but in a super relaxed and characterful old barn.At the Deli during the day, you are invited into our ‘home-from-home’ by the tantalizing aroma’s of the fresh bread and the best coffee in the Valley, the uber friendly and caring service, chef Joccelyn’s delicious creations, and more.At night the Deli is transformed into a delightful tapas bar serving inspired dishes with amazing textures and flavours.Whichever Foodbarn you are in … we look forward to spoiling you
