We came here for lunch on our first day in Paarl. It was an excellent idea! The line fish special was excellent, the wine very drinkable and the service very attentive. Next week we plan to try it for dinner and are sure we will have another great meal.

We came here in quite a large group of 10 people at the end of a week in the area. With out a doubt it was the best of the bunch of places we'd had dinner at during the week. My favourite course was the main of perfectly cooked springbok. We had this with a fantastic pinotage. All in all... More

Decided to pop into Noop for lunch on Saturday and it turned out to be the best decision of the day. Although not on the standard menu, I heard that their seafood risotto is outstanding. Since another risotto dish was on the Chef's Speciality Board for the day, we enquired about the possibility of ordering a seafood risotto and received... More

Noop is a must visit when in Paarl. The vibe is good, service excellent and the food out of this world. The chef has obviously had great training and his food is perfectly prepared to perfection. We have eaten at excellently rated places in Frranschoek and Noop compares with the best amongst the best there! So save your petrol if... More

This is situated on Main Street in Paarl and there is adequate parking available. The menu is extensive for all courses and everything well prepared. The service is very good and unobtrusive with staff who knew about all the dishes offered and could advise appropriately. We sampled the ravioli, crayfish bisque and the main course of tuna. All were without... More

We visit Noop on a regular basis. The food is good and the service always very attentive. I just feel that they have now out priced themselves with their latest price increases. It may not be an issue for their increasing number of overseas clientele, but it sure will keep a lot of locals away. There are just too many... More

We stopped here for an early lunch. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and shared their daily specials with us. Food was excellent. Worth it.

Thank Cecilia H

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.
