I've visited Noop quite a few times during visits from the USA to Paarl. I love the food and atmosphere. We booked a table on the patio for an early dinner since we were bringing my 6 year old. I was happy to find that...there were a few menu options for kids because I had a hard time finding this information online. The service was impeccable and our food was delicious as always. It's a staple in the Paarl area and I recommend a visit for a nice dinner!More

We have been there twice, convinced by the excellent food at our first visit there. The staff is friendliy and attentive. You definitely need a reservation, the restaurant is filled up quickly after 6.30 pm, which isn‘t a surprise. We had starters and steaks, deserts...and cheese platter, all was excellent, and, for any carnivore absolutely necessary, cooked to perfection. When you order medium ore medium rare, you will get it as ordered! The quality of is top, so this is definitely no 1 in that area. Let me also point out that you have the byo option, but you do not need that, there are a lot of wines by the glass, and the wine list is exceptional for a wine lover and sommelier like me. So we will come back, only a question of time.More

Excellent fine dining and great service. A must visit on a stay in Paarl. We hadn't made a booking here but unlike many restaurants in SA they juggled tables and fitted us in skillfully.

This is a fantastic choice for dinner in Paarl. The restaurant is obviously popular with locals and tourists alike as it was jam packed on the night we were there. Despite this the service was attentive and personal. We started with the tuna tartar which...was excellent. After this we had the wild mushroom ravioli with white truffel butter which was an outstanding dish. On top of this the restaurant has an amazing wine list, what else can you ask for?!More

The pork neck as always was incredibly tender and flavourful, perfectly seasoned to enhance its natural richness. The beef carpaccio was a delight of simplicity and elegance, with its tender slices showcasing the freshness and quality of the meat, complemented by well-chosen accompaniments that elevated...the dish further. The sophisticated yet welcoming atmosphere of Noop, paired with excellent service, made the meal even more enjoyable. Both dishes were not only delicious but also reflective of the chef's skill and passion for cooking. Noop certainly left a lasting impression, making it a must-visit for any culinary enthusiast.More

This place deserves to be number one. We arrived early and the most friendly Maitre D showed to the upstairs bar where we enjoyed a drink before our table was ready. Choosing was difficult as we wanted more than one of the choices available. So...we ordered there which would always be a mistake in SA. But a fantastic dumpling and bisque soup was just so good. We didn’t finish our mains but they were equally as goodMore
