Always busy due to wide range of beers, good menu and daily special offers - main meals before 6pm only R65 (just over £4). Seating at the front of the restaurant always popular but lots more seating at rear.

Great place to enjoy a bar snack or have a larger meal. Food was alway enjoyable, we ate there a few times during our 10 night stay in Cape Town and we're never disappointed.

Very good food at great prices and excellent service. I also like watching rugby whilst eating and just having a fun time with friends, creating awesome memories.

Six of us had dinner at Barristers and not one was disappointed. Steaks excellent, fish too was very good. Excellent food, atmosphere, service and price. Long may Barristers continue.

We came for lunch and a beer. We were sorely disappointed with the quality of the food, though the staff was friendly. The calamari was badly undercooked and the quality of the steak on the steak salad was very poor -- I couldn't eat it....More

So I was a little sceptical about the name - but decided to give it a go. Last time I had a steak as good was Wolfgang’s in New York. The rib eye was done to perfection and the accompanying baked potato and sour cream...More

Barristers is an institution in the Southern suburbs of Cape Town. Having been founded in 1980, Barristers is in the heart of Newlands Village and is an old favorite of locals and international visitors alike. From the deck which looks out over the village circle, through the lively pub and into the welcoming Grill and Tudor Rooms, we offer good old fashioned values at reasonable prices. Barristers has a comprehensive menu, extensive range of draught beers and a huge wine list. Good Food, Great Wine, Warm Friends is a motto we believe in emphatically.
