Welcome to Barristers Restaurant

BARRISTERS has always been a favorite meeting spot in the Southern Suburbs and is one of the grand old restaurants of Cape Town. Situated in the heart of Newlands Village, we continue to provide warmth, friendship and good cheer. Whether for a casual glass of wine, a great meal (we still serve the great Barristers steaks that made us famous) or simply a warm and inviting destination to meet special friends, BARRISTERS is perfectly positioned to help you celebrate life’s special occasions.


Having a comprehensive and interesting wine list, with many wines served by the glass, we are confident that we will have a wine to satisfy the most discerning pallet. Our range of whiskeys and liqueurs is extensive.

The Pub and Deck areas offer a wonderful venue for entertaining and with a selection of more than twenty draught beers on tap, all ice cold, we are the best spot to watch sporting events on our big screen TV’s. Being in the heart of Newlands, we are unashamedly Stormers supporters!


Breakfast, lunch and dinner menus cater for all tastes and budgets, from our Brandy Pepper Butter Steak to our ever popular Roquefort sauce, we continue the tradition of offering something for all tastes including delicious seafood and vegetarian dishes.


Under direct management of the Owner and with a motivated and highly competent Management Team, we remain one of the few independent restaurants with a long and successful heritage which we constantly strive to uphold.
