A lovely restaurant which is excellent for both lunch and dinner outings. Has recently been beautifully refurbished . Had lunch there on Sunday 21st May 2017 and found the food and service superb. Must be one of the best restaurants in Cape Town for beautifully prepared and served dishes at reasonable prices.Very definitely worth a visit.

Being Capetonians we are lucky enough to enjoy the outstanding food at this restaurant at a reduced price for winter lunch. The refurbished space if very well decorated, the acoustics much improved and the food and service represent excellent value for money. Besides choosing from the set 3 course menu, with or without wine, one can select certain items off... More

I try to explore with restaurants, but this is always the HOME button. The menu is always exciting, and considering how often I have been there, it changes enough that I have hardly touched sides with most of it. Two birthdays in a row I have gone there for lunch, and I don't see that changing. The staff are all... More

Stopped here for lunch on our way down to see the penguins. The service was fantastic, the decor was country lux and the food was delicious. A perfect place for brunch or lunch.

Although the atmosphere and service are good, the food was a total disappointment. It seemed as though Franc, who's culinary reputation we went to experience, was not on duty. Vegetables soggy and buttery, sirloin mediocre and overall disappointing.

For starters we had a prawn and avocado stack which was outstanding, followed by a rack of lamb which was the tenderest, tastiest lamb I've ever eaten.

We always go early to a restaurant, so we were at Foodbarn Restaurant the moment they opened. We could choose our table and the service was good, quite nice and relaxed. Not busy at a restaurant by that time. The food was quite good with offers of everything from beef to fish.

Franc is without doubt one of the best chefs in South Africa - period. The restaurant is not fussy yet delivers the most incredible food. I highly recommend visiting this place and sampling what can only be described as some of South Africa's most incredible dishes. A real treat 😍

Look I love food and especially pies.. I have never tasted a better lamb pie in my life 💯 % I will drive from Blouberg for these pies!! A true deli as the pictures show they can't keep up with baking their farm fresh breads, you will definitely be drooling at the sight of all the cakes and tarts calling... 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
