Description: At the Foodbarn Restaurant, we serve the food that Franck is famous for … delicious and decadent ‘fine-dining’ style food but in a super relaxed and characterful old barn.At the Deli during the day, you are invited into our ‘home-from-home’ by the tantalizing aroma’s of the fresh bread and the best coffee in the Valley, the uber friendly and caring service, chef Joccelyn’s delicious creations, and more.At night the Deli is transformed into a delightful tapas bar serving inspired dishes with amazing textures and flavours.Whichever Foodbarn you are in … we look forward to spoiling you

After a walk on the beach in Noordhoek we headed back to The Foodbarn as we had a few fabulous meals there last year. And we did not regret. We had the bistro menu at a very affordable price. Excellent quality and presentation, good accompanying wines. Very friendly and relaxed service. Really the kind of quality lunch that you are looking for during a vacation. They will have us again in the next few days!

If you are thinking of visiting Cape Town, and don't visit this place, you need your head read. Went there for lunch today. Michelin standard cuisine, with excellent presentation. Chef is Franck Dangereux, ex-La Colombe. The food is the best you will get anywhere in the world, but at a fraction of the price. It is on the scenic route to Cape Point, so a great place to have lunch. We had four different starters with a carafe of wine with each course, as well as two desserts. Total bill was R 630, which is about $70, for two of us, including a tip. Impeccable service. Nice and casual. Have been there many times, and it just gets better and better. That it is not a top 10 restaurant in South Africa is a travesty. Beautiful French cooking. Do yourself a favor. I would choose it in preference to any of the so-called top 10 restaurants in South Africa.

Well advised by our B&B hosts of Dolonga House we travelled to this eatery in Noordhoek. Easy going atmosphere but with a very efficient working host and good service. Nice and well-priced wine list with not only the well-known names but also some of the lesser known which made it more interesting to make a final choice. Food was excellent but not the cheapest place to go. Only observation is: try to avoid that you are seated too close to the noisy stairway. Nevertheless it was worthwhile the journey and a nice way of spending our Sunday afternoon.

Nordhook is a residential area with lots of horses , a big stretched beach and a village where you find amongst a nursery , some curio shops and information center the foodbarn restaurant in a cottage house with a hatched roof.
its just perfect - the menu shows 2 types, a seasonal one with a choice of 2 or 3 courses and a wine recommendation to a fixed price or the regular extended menu - always fresh ingredients, inspiring and tasty! and very important, i have never experienced any changes in the quality of food.
the service is very professional, not fussing around but listening to your requests and always helpful.
if you are intending to go with young children, it would be no problem as a playground is attached to the outer terrace , quite convenient to watch over your kids and enjoy a good lunch or dinner.

I was invited by my friend from Canada to celebrate our 15 year reunion at The Foodbarn Restaurant last sunday, Oh my word! I have never in my life enjoyed such 5 star service in such a relaxed fine dining! Our fantastic waiter was Charles, very very friendly and is handsome too, we just could not wait for this review, Charles took us back to old times that we felt loved and taken care of. We ate at the perfect pace, never rushed, our "water and wine levels" as he liked to say were always optimum. I will come back and this time i will bring my own invites. thank you so much for such an amazing experience we had. the food was outstanding and Charles helped us choose great local wines from the Steenberg 1682 Brut as an aperitif to Nitida calligraphy with our lamb main course, we were blown away.
