One cannot go wrong with ordering any of the chef's specials or from the menu. Every dish must be savoured to enjoy all the flavours. Fish or meat - wow We had seared tuna, risotto, mussels and pork belly amongst us. The service was excellent.

Was spoilt for our anniversary at Noop after a recommendation by a Paarl local. Lovely ambiance, good waiter and beautiful food. Very good Pierre Jordan MCC and a fruity, crispy sauvignon blanc. Highlight of the evening was the amazingly flavoured Cape Malay Seafood Curry Soup!...More

A well balance menu with steak specials which are fantastic. One of the best in the cape winelands which is an area renown for good food. Location is on Main street but the food more than makes up for the lack of a view.

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.
