It was a confluence of fortunate events - a beautiful setting, excellent service and exquisite food. I took my father and daughter to Noop to celebrate my daughter's 12th birthday. She indulged in the seafood risotto and the deboned lamb neck, which she pronounced to be the best she had ever had - she loves her some lamb, part of... More

Just perfect! The food and service are the best . We had for starters Ravioli mushrooms and a Tuna salad . Both beautifully served and extremely tasty . As main course we took steaks ( we didn't think much of the sauces ) but the meat was good . Ended with a good chocolate desert.

I had lunch at Noop with friends. The service and staff were excellent. I had perlemoen (abalone) as they are one of only a few restaurants with a permit to serve perlemoen. It was superb, sliced rather that minced so you still had the texture. For my main I had linefish which was Kob and was flavoursome and well cooked... More

For my boss's 50th party we attended Noop. What an experience. Everyone made sure we felt welcome and was well cared for. I don't think standard English can describe the level of food we had to eat! From the springbok carpaccio and seared tuna starters, to the fall-off-the-bone lamb shank with mash an veggies, to the perfect trio of creme... More

This beautiful restaurant exceeded all our expectations. Mushroom risotto and deboned lamb was out of this world. Flavorful and attractive presentation. Attentive host. Highly recommended.

Faultless. All ten starters and main meals were perfectly delicious and gorgeously served. So you can't go wrong no matter what you order...if you are a foodie and get the chance, visit Noop.

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.
