My husband had the bobotie and it was nice. I had the fish and it was seriously overcooked. The wine was great and the service ok.

The setting is beautiful, with attentions to the finest detail on the table setting. The staff is friendly and the waitress very professional. The food is very good and beautifully presented.

We were invited to Barrique for my cousin, Jack's, birthday lunch. It was beautiful under the trees, but some type of pollen or the forming grapes were on the side plates and serviettes and some even blew into my eye, so maybe not a good idea. The food was scrumptious. It took at least 45 minutes to arrive, so it... More

Without making a reservation, we rocked up at the spur of the moment. Staff friendly and inviting. Had their Sunday lunch special. Reasonably priced and hearty, delicious. Sitting under age old oak trees, what more can you ask for. Oh, and Vredenheim Sauvignon Blanc to round it off. Sublime.

This restaurant has been our family restaurant for as long as I can remember. I held my wedding here and it was amazing. Food is wonderful, ambiance is warm and friendly and the owners are the best hosts. I highly recommend Restaurant Barrique!

Last night we visited the Restauant Barrique and felt immediately at home. The fire was burning, nice lit candle the old fashion way and of course the fabric on the table. The starters we had was the blue cheese prunes and camerbert. The portion was just enough and then the main meals. The pork belly and the Rosemary rump steak.... More

Barrique doesn't pretend to be fine dining, so I wasn't expecting the spectacular. We were with friends we hadn't seen for a while, so we wanted to take a long, lazy lunch. Our starters arrived within 15 minutes of ordering - I had the deep fried camembert (four tiny, rather tasteless pieces with a droplet of berry dressing) the others... More

I was really looking forward to dining at this fine looking restaurant, but was disappointed with the Oxtail. I found it was not cooked long enough and tough.

One of our favourite restaurants in Stellenbosch. Great value for money. Will recommend oxtail and fish of the day. They selling the local farm Vredenheim's wines at a decent price.

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.
