We visit the Noordhoek farm village every December when on holiday in the area. The foodbarn is our favourite place for bottomless coffee and good food. Had croissants today and it was delicious.

Reservation highly recommended as it is rightly very popular. The atmosphere provides for romantic, intimate setting, with superb service, excellent food, gourmet presentation, and good value compared to America or Europe.

We went there last night. Fantastic as always. The lamb chops are the best. There were four of us. Mainly British folk. We had an eclectic spread. Sirloin, lamb, prawns etc. then Irish coffee. Fantastic. Expensive.

Lunch at Food Barn (not the deli). Been there twice before, once it was great - the next time it was not. Seems consistency is not their strong suit. The food: I had the bouillabaisse starter which was really good, the sirloin main was overdone...More

The lunch menu had many great choices. We tried 4 different starters - bouillabaisse, tuna tartare, asparagus, ravioli and all were outstanding! Presentation was beautiful and portion size was more than expected. We ordered the table salad to share and it was enough for 4...More

Driving around Hout Bay, Foodbarn makes a convenient stop for a fullsome brunch or breakfast. A variety of pastries or eggs or bread to suit any morning palate. Their small grocery store has fresh bread, rolls and wines for any picnicking plans

It's been a while since I treated myself to Franck's culinary delights. The décor has changed to highly elegant (love the wallpaper!) and grander but it's still the same friendly and efficient service, delicious food and sublime wines. I took a friend for a post-birthday...More

At the Foodbarn Restaurant, we serve the food that Franck is famous for … delicious and decadent ‘fine-dining’ style food but in a super relaxed and characterful old barn.At the Deli during the day, you are invited into our ‘home-from-home’ by the tantalizing aroma’s of the fresh bread and the best coffee in the Valley, the uber friendly and caring service, chef Joccelyn’s delicious creations, and more.At night the Deli is transformed into a delightful tapas bar serving inspired dishes with amazing textures and flavours.Whichever Foodbarn you are in … we look forward to spoiling you
