Description: Restaurant Barrique opened at Vredenheim in 1998 and is an oasis of traditional cuisine in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands. This venue is ideal for enjoying our a la carte menu in a Historic Cape Dutch setting surrounded by the Helderberg Mountains. We also specialise in small functions, wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions in the Cellar venue. En-route you will see zebra, gems buck, ostriches and also the pizza chimney smoke lazily above the trees, before you get to the rustic eatery with its indoor "rietdak". This is a friendly, family affair especially on Sundays with families enjoying our food and gardens.

Not often does one find a delicious 'bord kos'. (Sunday roast like Mom used to make). If that's your desire you'll not find better. The lamb was really good and no fewer than three starches, all favourites, and well prepared. A no frills good experience. I imagine many of the diners were regulars.

The first time I visited Barrique, I knew that's where I wanted to get married! The atmosphere is amazing, elegant yet relaxing! But the food is the best part, whether you choose salad, pizza, curry or desert (I've tried it all), your taste buds will be grateful forever! It's a must!

I felt i had to write a review for this lovely restaurant as it is a true gem in the Stellenbsoch winelands. Too often restaurants, notably ones on winefarms, are guilty of pretension. Barrique is a breath of fresh air. Having eaten there several times, I find myself returning over and over for several reasons.

it is a family run restaurant, and the management, as well as the staff exude an obvious passion for the quality of the dining experience they provide, which can be felt as a diner. Everyone is friendly, sincere, and will go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your time with them. The staff have a good knowledge about their produce they are using, and on several occasions i have benefitted from their advice on what i might enjoy.

Secondly, and very importantly - the food - is great. Fresh ingrediants and chefs who know how to handle them with care mean that I have enjoyed every meal. The menu caters to the conservative, as well as the exotic, and nothing is short on flavour. Visitors will find something that appeals.

lastly, as far as value goes, I can only commend Barrique on prices that are reasonable given the quality they dish out. Often restaurants in the winelands seem to take chances with pricing that leaves the diner feeling shortchanged. This is not the case at Barrique. This is also reflected at the atmosphere of comfort i find whenever i visit. You should feel at home in a restaurant, not like a stranger.

in conclusion, I would recommend Barrique to locals and tourists alike who find themselves needing some great food, great wine and a great dining experience while in the winelands of the beautiful Western Cape
5 stars :)
