The Hub in Barrydale......what an interesting shop! Tucked away in a tranquil setting and they have the most amazing presentation of food. The shop is filled with various and interesting goodies. I would highly recommend browsing through this interesting shop. You will find Art for sale, videos for hire, second hand books and plants for sale among other interesting items for sale. There is also an internet and printing facility. Most impressive was the little tranquil garden coffee shop and the food presentation was out-of-this-world. The only regret I have, is that I did not take pictures of the food presented. I have never been served yogurt with fruit with a drizzle of honey and sesame seeds in any top Johannesburg restaurant presented and served to me like The Hub in Barrydale! The people are warm and friendly and the place seems to attract many very interesting people, a delightful meeting place to drink coffee and chat. If ever passing through Barrydale do not forget to visit this interesting little shop and to experience the warmth and friendliness that The Hub of Barrydale has to offer to visitors!

I was taken out to Mez in Barrydale for my birthday. The food was excellent. The service excellent. Tranquil setting. I am still dreaming of the ice cream with Moroccan topping. I've never tasted such good ice-cream! The restaurant was busy and full........I can understand why!

Visited this beautiful and remote Klein-Karoo town along the Cape Route 62 and enjoyed it so much that we make sure we stop everytime we travelling this way. We had a drink in the Barrydale Hotel bar before heading around the corner to Mez for a delicious dinner. The next day we stopped just down the road at Joubert-Tradauw Wine Estate R62 Deli for a superb lunch and to purchase wine before continuing our journey.

Stayed for a couple of nights with relatives in Barrydale and had a wonderful time. Jam Tarts was excellent and Mez has truly wonderful food.The countryside and views are to die for, I would recommend a visit to anyone.

Verified reviewvery good

Its a bit of a trek (2 hours) from Cape Town, but delightful once you are there. Quaint restaurants, lovely scenery and lots of things to do if you are into the outdoors. From here its easy to go to the game reserves nearby. If you have the time pop in at Barrydale weavers!!
