Babel Pleases With Colour Coded Salads And Fresh Yum!

Babel Restaurant at Babylonstoren between Franschhoek and Paarl is pretty hot as a lunch spot right now, and I visited with friends to find out why. Easy to see …. Under new ownership, the Bekker family have done much to renovate, restore and enhance this beautiful historic farm, the development of Babel with it’s feeding troughs and old walls, one of the delightful additions.

With a green house appearance, the venue is light and simple in it’s design, the food is fresh and mostly grown on the farm, colours are intense, and tastes match outright. Staff are charming, although there is room for improvement on the wine and food knowledge front. Simple but delicious … As South Africa food fundi says Maranda Engelbrecht says, “We are not looking for different things, but simply looking at things differently’. We lingered for hours, and I can’t wait to get back …

The menu printed on the wall at the one end of the restaurant.

Water is kept cold in the old feeding troughs in the centre of the room, with the one filled with roses from the garden.

The delicious RED salad – watermelon, beetroot, tomatoes, peppers – the yummiest!

Yummy scones. So much to see and taste.
