Last night we visited Noop with Norwegian friends. I suggested Noop because of their excellent food and friendly service. The food was superb again. The Karoo Lamb shoulder was so tender and juicy, Kingklip was top notch and the South African dessert platter was almost if my own grandma made it. Ons can really not fault te food. However our...

We ate at Noop with friends on Friday 10/2/17. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was fantastic. The highlights were the tuna tartare which was delicious, the Half Duck which was cooked to perfection and the South African desert platter which combined all of my favourite desserts into one. Yum! Will definitely be back again.

First visit to this establishment and probably the last. The service was pretty poor all night and not up to a decent standard. The food took an eternity to come and wasn't really worth the wait. It was cold and lacking in any flavour, One of the poorest pork belly dishes I've ever had. Can't really be any more positive.

2 friends and I ate here on Wednesday 7/2/17. Arrived without reservation and the restaurant was busy with lots of atmosphere. Luckily the manager found a table on the ground floor for us. The food, tuna tartare to share and rib eye steaks all excellent. Good price too. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Trip advisor I found this great Restuarant in Paarl. What a gem. It is nit easy to find good duck in restaurants in Cape Town, but this duck was to die for. My wife had the risotto and it was also excellent. My one son had the lamb rump and it was also delicious. Nice to find a... More

We had read about Noop before visiting Paarl and the host at our BnB warmly recommended it to us. The restaurant was very busy, mainly with locals it seemed, so obviously popular. Our meal was disappointing however. The service was slow even by South African standards and both of our main courses arrived only luke warm. The fillet steak was... More

Sat upside and as it was late and was well worth taking a woolly, however shawls are provided. Food was excellent with knowledgeable waiters. Very busy and took a while for food to arrive bit well worth the wait.

This little gem is situated in paarl. We went for a date night and tried the steak which was absolutely delicious and done to perfection. The drinks are mainly wine and cooldrinks. Both affordable. There's space to sit inside and outside although inside is darker and you'll need to dress appropriately SEMI-casual is recommended. A reservation is usually a must.

Thank Annuska S

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.
