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 😍

We come to foodbarn quite often, 3x month. Food is always very tasty and good quality. Not really a fine dinning but close. Now the service is really horrible. Be ready to wait forever for whatever you have asked for. Or for mistakes, your water is finished nobody offers a new bottle, or even oh don't even expect the waiter... More

I had heard a lot about this restaurant and, being visitors to Cape Town, my wife and I entertained two friends at the Foodbarn for lunch. We were seated outside on a small patio which was shaded and delightful on a very hot day. Two of the party had the rack of lamb and two had the sea bass.All four... More

I can't think of one negative for the Food Barn. The food is outstanding, the service is friendly and warm, the restaurant is gorgeous, and I'd recommend it to anyone. The area that the restaurant is in is truly spectacular and there are little shops to explore before and after your meal.

We had planned to spend the day down at Cape Point and eat at The Foodbarn on the way back to Camps Bay. Very helpful with the reservation including when we added two people the day before. Service was quick and very attentive to different needs within our group. Food overall excellent. Sat at a big table outside with candles.... 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
