This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Paarl. The restaurant is quite merge with many different separate places, but it does not give that impression. The food is excellent and the service is in line.

We were here again after one year, and quality of the food continues to be fantastic. Very creative menu, lovely flavors, perfect preparation. All this for rather low prices. Absolutely recommended, probably the best choice in Paarl. Hint: make a reservation.

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.
