Very probably the best restaurant on the Cape Peninsula, the aptly named Foodbarn serves French-influenced cuisine in a rustic and relaxed setting near Noordhoek Beach. Starters like a wild mushroom ravioli with ricotta and truffle cream or mussels and chorizo in a phyllo puff with smoked paprika cream set the tone for mains like a divine rack of lamb with a tomato-and-pecorino quiche. In a restored, shabby-chic barn, the venue invites you to relax and enjoy the exquisite
but never pretentious fare. Well-priced tasting menus and generous winter specials make this inspired fare highly affordable. Just a stone's throw away, the laid-back Foodbarn Deli serves delicious and very reasonably priced breakfasts and lunches as well as an evening tapas menu from Tuesday to Saturday.
