This was my first time at Barrique after living in the area for over 7 years. It is an absolute gem. The food was great and sitting outside while enjoying lunch was lovely. Good service. Would definitely recommend.

We are locals, and even though we don't go to Barrique often, over the years we have been a number of times. The service is always excellent, food is great and well priced, as is the wine list. We have never been disappointed. Personal attention...always. A great venue with indoor and outdoor seating. Lovely gardens to walk in. A consistently good experience. Thank you!More

We had an early Christmas lunch for 20 today. The food was excellent, as was the service. Some of the recommended starters were the prunes and gorgonzola wrapped in bacon, the deep fried camembert and the smoked salmon and avo salad. For mains the sea...bass was fabulous, the sirloin steak was excellent. Desserts too were all enjoyed. The prices of the food and wine are reasonable considering the great quality.More

We came here for a big family meal on the last night of our trip to South Africa for my brothers wedding. We booked Barrique based on the high TA rating, and it being child friendly. We arrived to find a spacious area reserved for...us, so that was good. However, it went downhill from there, as we all found the food extremely disappointing. The children had Margherita pizzas, and these were just terrible. Completely flat cheap bases with hardly any tomato base & smothered in bland cheese. The kids were not happy at all, and hardly ate any of it. The steak was kind of ok (but portion size way too big - it would help to have smaller size steak available). The rest of our food was not good quality and not enjoyed (Thai green curry, Cannelloni, and Bobotie). Everyone agreed that it was the worst meal of our trip - such a shame as we've had some lovely meals here and wanted to end our trip on a high. The great reviews on this site are misleading.More

This is a restaurant for the books. When you walk in you get the warm welcome feeling with the vintage decor. The owner Karin is amazing, always goes the extra mile. Not to mention the food. Their oxtail and pork belly are fantastic, the lemon...dessert is a winner for me. You wont be dissapointed in the portion size of the meals.More

I was recommended to come and eat in Barrique. I was glad that I was there, because otherwise I would have missed the very well done slow cooked Oxtail.
