We sat outside for a late lunch. It was not too hot, so very pleasant to sit outside. Gathered after our school reunion (only three of us). We had great service and all chose to eat the same salad. It was very delicious, well presented and tasty. Sparkling wine on the ice and coffee afterwards were our libations. We had... More

Friendly service and beautiful food makes visiting this restaurant a great pleasure. The restaurant has a long history of good service and the setting is great - we sat inside but there are also tables outside. The main course (we all had fish) was delicious and the Trio of Creme Brûlée was the perfect end to the meal. There is... More

Enjoyed an excellant meal on a busy Friday night. Food was superb and service friendly and quick. Restaurant was full - make a booking to avoid disappointment. If you have a sweet tooth save space for dessert! Good selection of seriously generous portions.

We had a gorgeous meal here. I had black mussels to start in a creamy marinera sauce. Then for my mains I had the seared yellowfin tuna with ginger and wasabi. It was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. My partner didn't enjoy his tuna as he likes his meat well done. The restaurant staff noticed and the manager came... More

We were a party of eight international travellers who joined for lunch after an earlier wine tasting session. The atmosphere was relaxed and stylish without being formal. We all chose different starters and main courses and we all shared in these extraordinary dishes. There was not one which was average, even the steak. The risotto with perlemoen was by far... More

We returned to Noop with a visitor for lunch and it was again excellent. We had the specials of tuna tartare and tuna done two ways; seared and tempura. Whilst the tempura isn't quite crispy and light, its delicious all the same. For desserts we had the special of pineapple crème brulee which was delicious, as well as the chocolate... More

Welcome to Noop. We hope you feel at home here, because that is how we think of our restaurant. After all, we spend more time here than we do at our homes. Our beautiful heritage building breathes warmth and hospitality. We know many of our guests by name; some of them have become our friends.As for us, we were customers before we became owners. Noop was established in 2005, and we had an affinity for the restaurant when we took it over in 2012. It's still as popular with returning locals as it is with visiting tourists, and we've kept everything people love about it while also making it our own. There's plenty for you to choose from, and we're sure that you'll find something you like. The meals are all fresh and so is the inspiration on our specials board. If you have special requests, we'll try our best to accommodate them. Whatever you order, you can enjoy it knowing that we make the same kind of food here as we do at home. Unpretentious. Often spontaneous. Always delicicious.
