This is a very traditional restaurant with excellent local cuisine. The service is as warm and inviting as the fireplace in the middle of the room. A great place for winter. The smoked trout and avocado salad is very tasty as a starter but the...More

Barrique has become our "must visit" place in Stellenbosch. Was there for the Sunday lunch, and everything was, as always, just simply amazing. Fab food, discrete service, and such a nice way to spend an afternoon at home, away from home!

Excellent place to celebrate! Even though we had a small group, there was absolutely no compromise on service! The table was decorated for us in a quiet part of the restaurant without need for special request. The menu was varied and the food was nothing...More

My husband had the bobotie and it was nice. I had the fish and it was seriously overcooked. The wine was great and the service ok.

Description
Restaurant Barrique opened at Vredenheim in 1998 and is an oasis of traditional cuisine in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands. This venue is ideal for enjoying our a la carte menu in a Historic Cape Dutch setting surrounded by the Helderberg Mountains. We also specialise in small functions, wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions in the Cellar venue. En-route you will see zebra, gems buck, ostriches and also the pizza chimney smoke lazily above the trees, before you get to the rustic eatery with its indoor "rietdak". This is a friendly, family affair especially on Sundays with families enjoying our food and gardens.
