Popped in here for lunch and had the saddle of lamb with pouched pears, best I’ve ever tasted! I’ll be back to try more dishes soon 😊

Sort of ended up here by mistake and liked it so much that I bought the book. Inside is intriguingly quirky, like so many S African restaurants, pleasingly eclectic. We sat outside which was more prosaic, verging on a car park vibe but, with, of...course, the same great food. Just had starters because the portion side was good, but it couldn’t be bettered.More

It’s very difficult not to eat lovely food beautifully presented in the Cape Town area. What set The Foodbarn apart was the superb service which is fast becoming a differentiator in hospitality. Generally, it’s just not as consistent as it was over many years ago…Not...so at the Foodbarn. Elijah deserves a personal mention for his outstanding manner, service, personal engagement. Well done Elijah & the FoodBarn.More

This is a lovely restaurant. It was recommended to us by our tour company and we were very pleased. We stopped for lunch on our way back from The Cape Of Good Hope. It’s in a nice area with shops and a nice atmosphere. I...would recommend this restaurant. Food is very fresh and service efficient with nice staff.More

Feeling a bit low? Lost faith in mankind? Visit the Food Barn and ask to be served by James. What a tonic he is: smiling, kind, perceptive. Ask for a spoon to mop up the sauce, and he brings delicious bread unbidden. James is such...a pick-me-up that the medical aid should foot your lunch bill. Oh, and by the way, the food is delicious too.More

We had an amazing dining experience! The 3 course lunch has so many excellent choices. You can get it with or without wine pairings. You can also order ala carte from the menu. The service was outstanding. If you love chocolate they have a special...dessert for you!More

Four of us had lunch here middweek in March. The palce was full and buzzing. Good service, well cooked food, comfortable ambience. Recommended. To get there from Cape Town one needs to go along Chapman's Peak Drive - worth the effort by itself.

It is not the first time we went to the Foodbarn and it will not be the last time ! It is really pleasure to go there for lunch or diner. Chef and staff prepare you good food for reasonable price. On sunny days outside...on the terrace, it can be windy sometimes and then is inside very cosy.More
