“Foodies' Delight in Suprisingly Simple Setting”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I have eaten here with family several times, great menu, stunning desserts, impressive entrees, excellent wine selection. The setting is quite simple, more could be done with seating, (our table faced parking lot ). It is definitely casual, in spite of elegant menu.

“Excellent food, beautiful setting!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The restaurant is located in the stunning quaint town of Noordhoek, at the foot of Chapman’s Peak, at the Noordhoek Village. A buzzing place on a weekend with lots of space for children to play if the parents want to relax. The food is world-class and the service great and friendly. Every dish is presented as a masterpiece and the portions is bigger than your usual French cuisine which is a plus. The interior is bright and light and very warm and welcoming. Book beforehand since it is very popular, even for lunch. Just make sure about the hours. It is not always open for lunch as well as dinner.

“Delicious fresh food”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We loved the "bookshop" atmosphere and the fresh organic food on offer. The deli has some great goodies too.

“Great spot for lunch”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Interesting menu, and the mid-week lunch special was fantastic value. My prawn tempura appetizer was tasty with an interesting mix of complementary, bold flavors. My steak dish was just a tad over-cooked, but still pretty tasty. The waiter was helpful with menu recommendations and very laid back. Overall, a relaxed and mellow atmosphere.

“Absolutely consistent in every sense”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

As a Cape Town tour operator I have the distinct privilege of dining with my guest in many different restaurants in and around Cape Town. Taking my guests to the Foodbarn is one of those events that I am absolutely guaranteed of getting excellent food and exceptional service for my guests and me.

I have been dining here for almost as many years as they have been open and will certainly continue doing so as this eatery is absolutely consistent in every sense.

I would recommend this place without any hesitation as I in fact do for every one of my guests and not surprising, every one so far has been absolutely thrilled.
