We can't complain. We enjoyed a lovely meal & a good wine. However, for a Wednesday evening it was nothing special nor fancy. We were just very satisfied. Thank you very much.

Not the smartest of places to go for Sunday lunch, but it scores high marks for the Sunday special roast, the wine, the speedy efficient service by the friendly and attentive waiter, and the excellent value for money.

I scored this as Very Good but although it was better than Average, VG is too much. 6.75/10 is a more accurate score. This was not the first time we had been to Restaurant Barrique as we were not over impressed by the food then,...More

Took almost 3 hours from the time we ordered to our food arriving. Steak seemed more like some kind of pork or mystery meat.More

Dear Chad We are so saddened by your review. Being Mother’s Day, we knew that it was going to be busy, except that most of our patrons did not honour their booking times made. Unfortunately this resulted in a longer than usual waiting period. You...More

I definitely recommend to go somewhere else. Worst service in ZA! OK, the standard is low comparing to NY but the minimum acceptable of a good manner should apply. Bad food. Bad Service. Bad everything.More

This is a very traditional restaurant with excellent local cuisine. The service is as warm and inviting as the fireplace in the middle of the room. A great place for winter. The smoked trout and avocado salad is very tasty as a starter but the...More

Description
Restaurant Barrique opened at Vredenheim in 1998 and is an oasis of traditional cuisine in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands. This venue is ideal for enjoying our a la carte menu in a Historic Cape Dutch setting surrounded by the Helderberg Mountains. We also specialise in small functions, wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions in the Cellar venue. En-route you will see zebra, gems buck, ostriches and also the pizza chimney smoke lazily above the trees, before you get to the rustic eatery with its indoor "rietdak". This is a friendly, family affair especially on Sundays with families enjoying our food and gardens.
