Welcome to A Place In Time - Barrydale

A PLACE IN TIME is a family owned and run restaurant situated on the scenic Route 62 at the entrance to the Barrydale tourist precinct when approached from Montague. Your hosts are Mike and Beveley Loy who between them exclusively operate an intimate 20 seater indoor facility which increases in capacity during the summer months with the utilization of the veranda and garden areas.

The menu offered by A PLACE IN TIME Barrydale is surprisingly extensive and with the exception of our famous Karoo Lamb Shank or Oxtail or Venison Potjie are all freshly prepared on order from the best ingredients and products available and often from Barrydale its self. Being freshly prepared some measure of customer patience is occasionally required particularly when our restaurant is full but as Confucius says – “It is far better for man to wait for food than food to wait for man”

*Update* It is a sad day for us here at a place in time, as we have decided to put the restaurant / residence on the market. We thank all our loyal customers that have helped us over the past 4 years. We are truly grateful to have met so many amazing people and will keep all the memories close to heart. If you are interested in the property please view www.barrydaleproperties.co.za to find out more. It has been a big success and will be after we have gone, however we feel we need to move on to other things and be closer to our family back in Cape Town. Don’t worry we are still open and will make an official update on the website when a sale has been finalized. Thank you once again and please come visit us soon.
