We had amazing coffee, enjoyed the guitar relaxing music in the middle of the nature and relaxing view under the sun in an amazing weather day! Experience it yourself!

We stopped for a late lunch at Café Roux; the other restaurants were too crowded, but we were soon very glad to have landed on this one! The menu was interesting; chicken, vegetarian, beef dishes were all great. My friend even got eggs benedict from the all-day breakfast menu. Mark was a friendly and attentive server, even though we were... More

This is a lovely restaurant in the Noordhoek Farm Village, which is vibrant and family-friendly. The staff were pleasant and the menu is appealing. I had the calamari strips with green beans, and it was a good meal. Their various gin and tonic concoctions are a treat!

Had breakfast at Noordhoek farm village. Excellent food, extremely busy venue but the breads and tarts are worth a visit.

The restaurant was very full, vibey with happy patrons including the four-footed kind. Just my kind of place! But what really impressed me was, when my... More

I've visited this establishment on more than one occasion, and every time it's been a bit of a let down. Food is avarage service is average and the place looks a bit shabby. It's in need of a revamp. It's a pitty because it's in such a nice spot.

We still love the music sessions in the evenings but usually we ate somewhere else because neither the menu nor the food was to our liking. However we saw a different menu for the evening recently and decided to try it out when Sterling EQ played. Well, not only did we like the changed menu offering options for vegetarians and... More
