A big thumbs-up! When Japanese enjoy yellowtail in Africa, you've done well. Great service, atmosphere and food, thank you!

Had breakfast at Noordhoek farm village. Excellent food, extremely busy venue but the breads and tarts are worth a visit.

On Saturday 11th February I took a friend to Cafe Roux for a celebratory lunch. The menu was varied and exciting, the service was friendly and efficient, the ambiance relaxing. Our food very good. The restaurant was very full, vibey with happy patrons including the four-footed kind. Just my kind of place! But what really impressed me was, when my... More

Great food, especially breakfast, and you can sit in the shade and watch the kids going wild in the playground

I've visited this establishment on more than one occasion, and every time it's been a bit of a let down. Food is avarage service is average and the place looks a bit shabby. It's in need of a revamp. It's a pitty because it's in such a nice spot.

We still love the music sessions in the evenings but usually we ate somewhere else because neither the menu nor the food was to our liking. However we saw a different menu for the evening recently and decided to try it out when Sterling EQ played. Well, not only did we like the changed menu offering options for vegetarians and... More

The great thing about Cafe Roux is the musical line-up. They get some really good performers there. So, it's the kind of place my partner and I return to again and again ... but not for the food. It's okay, but not great. We just eat there as a convenience while enjoying the music.

The ambience was good, service was prompt and the beer was cold! The outside setting felt warm with the lanterns although it was a bit chilly. Unfortunately the food was disappointing. The yellow tail line fish was over cooked and the mushroom burger was very dry. My daughter enjoyed the chocolate brownie and ice cream.

This bustling area of Noordhoek Farm Village is certainly worth a visit or more. Apart from the excellent Food Barn there is Cafe Roux. The staff are very pleasant and sitting outside under the umbrellas is delightful. The Breakfasts are very good, Coffee the best I've had in a long time, it's actually brewed a few yards from the Cafe!... More

We went on a busy Saturday afternoon when some live music was scheduled to be staged. Had to pay an entry fee. Music started one hour later than advertised and was cut short, also by an hour. Having said that the visit was festive and the crown good natured although many felt cheated somewhat. Food very good. Service excellent and... More
