Mind blowing food! This restuarant is up there in my Top 10 best ever meals! The mussel starter far exceeded my expectations in both taste and desire to have more!!! Best to book early to avoid disappointment!

Each year we come to Paarl we start with lunch at Noop. Its always excellent and the service is very efficient. The Springbok loin was particularly good this time.

Had dinner here a couple of times, but just turned up for lunch without reserving and we were offered a table inside or out. Sweltering outside, so opted to sit with the a/c : good move. Just had a starter-sized seafood risotto each and shared...More

A booking was made, in advance, yet we were seated at the table next to the light switches and in the mainstream of traffic. Looking around you could notice other tables available- not filled within the 3 hours we dined there. However, absolutely great and...More

We were recommended to Noop by the owners of Mitre's Edge, a fine boutique winery in Stellenbosch. Noop is an excellent restaurant with an extensive wine list and very tasty food. The seafood risotto was superb as was the lamb shoulder. We had a bottle...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.
