It is really difficult to rate the restaurant objectively as I am a an extremely fussy eater. I wanted to have a grown up meal with wine tasting, and as we were in the area, we booked a table at the food barn. Our server was really good and friendly, she knew the menu and the wines and could give... More

What a wonderful meal. We were very late in the day (arriving late for our 2.30pm booking) but the staff could not have been more accommodating. Wonderful food and service.

Quiet place from outside but other world from inside. very decorative, familiar look. Holds number of tables, large open kitchen and small "supermarket" with fresh baked breadm croissants etc. We had breakfast which tasted perfect, all fresh ingredients, very good service and just the atmosphere gives you a kick for the day

The atmosphere is quirky and fun, with rudimentary decor and furnishings, but this did nothing to dampen our expectations. We elected to go 'a la carte' from a relatively limited menu choice, rather than the tasting option (with or without wines). Aside from my wife's 'fish dish of the day', which was delicious, we came away relatively disappointed. The flavours... More

We have visited both the restauarant and Tapas bar in the past few weeks. The restaurant - in our opinion it no longer raches the standard it achieved in the past. The food is OK but for the price one expects more. The service is OK but why on earth is hot food served on cold plates? The menu needs... More

....to start with, the drive to the restaurant was the best part (chapmans peak). We have reserved a table several months in advance, when we arrived we had to wait on the bar as they needed to check where we can sit. The female manager then brought us to the table and also got our wishes. When we asked if... More

If you are in or passing Nordhoek, stop by Foodbarn - you will not be disappointed! Always delivers good food with friendly service. But call first - restaurant is always full

We visited for Lunch. The food was very dissapointing. I found the staff at reception to be arrogant and borderline rude. Our waitress was friendly. We arrived at 12:00 sharp and were asked to place our starter and main orders at once. It felt very rushed. We left just after 13:00. Having driven two hours to get there...it was a... More

This place is great. The decor is not amazingly stylish but the food is so delicious and great value for what is it. I am dairy free and they tailored the menu accordingly, but we couldn't have the tasting menu as the whole table needs to order it. The food was nicely presented and our waitress was lovely and really... More

The food was delicious (especially the fish and the goats cheese) and the wine pairings were spot on! Service was great too! Unfortunately there was a small rubber band on my food which was a bit unexpected and there were no apologies from the chef which would have been appreciated. Anyway, was a lovely dinner!

Thank Rupre
