My friends and I discovered The Food Barn on my 25th birthday while taking a drive around Chapman's Peak. Walking in we thought it a bit pricey and decided to have only starters but after tasting the starters we were hooked and ended up having the full 3-course lunch with accompanying wines. I compare every meal I've had since to... More

We were in this area only three days and the restaurant was serving dinner only on Saturday. So, we made a reservation that night because we did not want to have a three or four course meal with wine during lunch. We were sure glad we did. We arrived at 8.p.m. and the place was packed. The ambiance of the... More

Booked it because of good looks of the menu and good reviews here. Unfortunately experience was bit different. First: everyone on the table should choose either a La cart or set menu. We were 10 people and no way to have 8 sets and 2 a La carte. Why remains a mystery. My guess set menu portions are bigger than... More

Pete_de_Bruin, Owner at The Foodbarn Restaurant, responded to this review

Firstly; it is an accepted practice for restaurants to insist that the entire table experiences a tasting menu. You are right though that the portion sizes are smaller but I suspect you don't understand why. One of the reasons for a tasting menu is it offers guests an opportunity to have a smaller portion of many dishes; thereby trying more... More

We visited as a family last Saturday lunchtime. We hadn't made a reservation but there were some free tables so we were immediately seated. My wife and I opted for the three course bistro meal accompanied by wine. I enjoyed chicken liver pate followed by line fish of the day (yellowtail) which was excellently presented. We finished off the meal... More

Three of us went to The Foodbarn for Sunday lunch. I wasn't expecting much with the name but what a pleasant surprise! Excellent menu, good wines and service that was perfect. This is on my personal list of Capetown's top restaurants! I haven't been to every one but I will be back to this one!!

We thought that no reservation was required for a mid-week lunch in a quiet village but were lucky to get the last empty table. Two starters of ravioli and camembert cheese followed by rack of lamb and sea bass. How we managed to find space for the stunning deserts we don't know. All the food was superbly presented and the...

The Tapas meal was very well presented and everyone of the dishes were excellent. There were dishes for Vegans and Vegetarians as well, which made the visit even easier. Very good quality food , great flavours, and service excellent.

We were taken here by a guide on a tour to Cape Point and the food was absolutely delicious with amazing local produce. They also have 50% off food in the week which made it incredible value for money!
