Good Food, Great Wine, Warm Friends

Barristers is one of Cape Town’s favourite restaurants situated in Newlands Village. The restaurant offers a place to enjoy a delicious menu in a warm and hospitable ambience. Barristers is a well situated meeting place where you can enjoy a glass of wine or tasty meal – we still serve our renown sizzling Barristers steak!

With a broad selection of wines, we will definitely have one to satisfy wine connoisseurs or to simply accompany your choice dish. Barristers boast a wide range of whiskeys and liquers, with 25 whiskeys on offer.

The refurbished bar and deck are ideal for large groups who want to try our many ice cold draught beers on tap. Our big screen television invites you to watch the latest sporting events – and being in the heart of Newlands, we are absolutely known for supporting the Stormers.

Barristers are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and cater for all tastes and budgets. Try our scrumptious traditional pan-fried prawns (still served on their own brass burner) or our amazing Roquefort sauce, or possibly a seafood platter or vegetarian delight!

The restaurant is managed by the owner and accompanied by a dedicated and hard working Management Team who constantly endeavour to maintain Barristers long-standing reputation for being one of the most successful independent restaurants in the Cape.  


Our Tudor Room seats up to 60 people and is ideal for private functions, birthdays, special celebrations, seminars, conferences and presentations with a fully equipped audio visual system including a projector and big screen. We do not charge for the room hire, but please do contact us for a quote for your catering requirements.

We can give you a tailor made menu to suit the occasion as well as your budget.
