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.

We went out for dinner to the Barrique. The food was very delicious the waiters courteous. The Thai Chicken Curry, the Chicken salad and the pizza bread were excellent and the house wine fantastic.

I found Barrique to be a very good experience. Quint rustic decor, friendly efficient service and menu to suit all tastes at affordable price.

I was offered a combination of pork belly and oxtail when I could not decide between the two. Both were really tasty and literally melt in the mouth. Snails as starter not so great. Others in the party enjoyed the calamari starter and huge T Bone steaks as mains.

Great wine at very affordable prices. All in all a great afternoon and will be back.

Other more bistro style restaurant right next door with cool kids playground and animals to view.

I ordered a greek sald and mussels cooked the Thai way, but both were below standards. The mussels were thawed/deep frozen ones and the salad leafs were not very fresh either.The only positive remark I can make is that the service is very good and the comments I made on the food were not rejected as those of a difficult client.

One of my favourite restaurants in the world. We have been going there for many years and have NEVER had a bad experience. Eclectic, homely atmosphere. The owners have a passion for making guests feel welcome and special, and they succeed brilliantly. The menu is varied, the food preparation faultless, the value for money tops. If you want a small artwork on your plate for the price of a banquet, then this is not the place for you. They sell food - quality food - that cries out to be eaten. We love taking our visitors there, and we never doubt that everything will be perfect.
