I've been to Barrique a couple of times over the years and I'm always happy to go back there as the food is good and the service is great. There is a choice for vegetarians that is not endless, but exceeds the amount of choice in some of the more renowned Stellenbosch restaurants. Setting is nice. Good value for money.

Had the Sunday Lunch which was delicious as usual.A tour bus arrived with lots of people as we were seated.I thought it would detract from the service but the staff were just as friendly and efficient and the food and dessert was perfect.Well done!

It is virtually unheard of nowadays to get personal attention from restaurant owners. they all appoint managers and other staff to look after the patrons. At Barrique you will get a visit from either owners Karin or Peter, a little chat, a suggestion on a particular dish or something extra to accompany you meal. The serving staff were efficient and...

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.

We were invited to Barrique for my cousin, Jack's, birthday lunch. It was beautiful under the trees, but some type of pollen or the forming grapes were on the side plates and serviettes and some even blew into my eye, so maybe not a good idea. The food was scrumptious. It took at least 45 minutes to arrive, so it... More

Without making a reservation, we rocked up at the spur of the moment. Staff friendly and inviting. Had their Sunday lunch special. Reasonably priced and hearty, delicious. Sitting under age old oak trees, what more can you ask for. Oh, and Vredenheim Sauvignon Blanc to round it off. Sublime.

This restaurant has been our family restaurant for as long as I can remember. I held my wedding here and it was amazing. Food is wonderful, ambiance is warm and friendly and the owners are the best hosts. I highly recommend Restaurant Barrique!

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.
