Description: Barristers is an institution in the Southern suburbs of Cape Town. Having been founded in 1980, Barristers is in the heart of Newlands Village and is an old favorite of locals and international visitors alike. From the deck which looks out over the village circle, through the lively pub and into the welcoming Grill and Tudor Rooms, we offer good old fashioned values at reasonable prices. Barristers has a comprehensive menu, extensive range of draught beers and a huge wine list. Good Food, Great Wine, Warm Friends is a motto we believe in emphatically.

Barristers is - er - Barristers. Work has been done to gentrify the bar and to extend the deck outwards into the car park. The interior looks different - probably painted lighter. There is little more that one can do or that needs to be done. A good standard steak meal - a bit on the rare side of that ordered, adequate wine list and prompt service. This eating proposition has been the same (except cost!) for years and years. Why break the mould? We'' be back.

Very nice place to drop into for a beer at the end of a hard day, just down the road for the Vineyard hotel

Very nice restaurant which has a great vibe to it. The food was excellent and the service was great.
I did try one or two of the snails they had on the menu, which gives you an idea of the range of items on the menu, very wide selection of meals and appetizers.

I've been there in February 2013 with a group of friends. The three course meal was fine, as also the staff.
