Delicious dinner, served with humour and attentiveness by the lovely Trish. Pork belly was fabulous as was the crayfish bisque. Highly recommend.

My husband and I visited Noop for his birthday. From start to finish all the details were appreciated - the conscientious bread basket (including mini vetkoekies to my husband's delight), the pleasant and professional waitress (Trish), how timely how our main meals were served and...More

What an amazing experience. We live in the area and when you want to do celebrations or anniversary dinners we tend to head to the city because there is good quality restaurants, that is so wrong.... you don't have to go anywhere further than Noop!...More

We had a delicious lunch on our first visit to Noop - will definitely be back. Friendly and professional staff, comfortable setting and ab-fab food. Plating was stylish and thoughtful, and taste was 101% yummy. Highly recommended - main street parking is tough though.

I loved this restaurant. We dined outside and the night was balmy. I would highly recommend other guests do the same. I tasted Springbok for the first time and I am sure it will not be my last.

We had an excellent meal at Noop. The food was delicious. The service and staff were good. We were given the Wine list to select from, unfortunately the prices were totally exorbitant. Not sure why the prices are so high! It would be better to...More

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.
