We would be delighted to prepare a special lunch or dinner menu for you, should you prefer to stay in, have a typical South African braai (BBQ) outside or spend it lounging by the pool. Please arrange with us in advance.
The Golf Club just across the street also runs a very good restaurant with a huge terrace facing the sunset over the golf course and Paarl Mountain in the back. (Visit their website here.)

“Welcome to Noop. We think you’ll feel at home here, because that’s how we think of our restaurant. After all, we spend more time here than we do at our homes. Even your first impression is one of homeliness. Set under two elegant old oak trees, our beautiful heritage building breathes warmth and hospitality. Like many others in Paarl on the country’s longest Main Road, our landmark has been restored and retains its original character.
As for us, we were customers before we became owners, we’ve kept everything people love about it while also making it our own. It’s still as popular with returning locals as it is with visiting tourists. More than anything, that’s because of the quality of their meals. And we cook the same food here as we do at home. Unpretentious. Often spontaneous. Always delicious.”
Open daily for lunch and dinner.

Grande Provence (23.9km)
