STAFF COMPLIMENT YOU...AND SHOULD Going through my online photographs, I found these about a visit to The Eatery! At the time, I used to live just conveniently over the road from Belvedere Square so at Belvedere Court. It was the first of my four WRITING...STUDIO's I have had since turning single in 2015. Sunshine (the waitron on the additional photographs), she wait my table and got so excited to learn that I am A WRITER! So, after serving me an amazing meal, she informed me that she feels special since she had just received a letter addressed to herself from a customer who was visiting from overseas! I was so interested to hear her story on the slightly quiet afternoon since at the time (long before LOCKDOWN), it could get beautifully busy and yet warmly cosy there! I've been many times with my eldest daughter and son in law when my GRANDSON was still a tiny baby, BTW! I told her that very unique things also happens to happen to me and that minus photographs, I seem to think nobody will believe it, some experience I can write up! She then took these photos out of her apron pocket to show it off to ME. I normally go to eating places to grab a meal, capture new stories and combine the use of WiFi and this on the price of a meal. However, I used to go sit and stare at the seemingly single tree which looked different from my bedroom window than over from the eatery! At the time, they served amazingly delicious DIFFERENT MEALS AT LUNCH TIME...worth my while, indeed. However, those days they never had WiFi, or did they!? It was just a walk over the road than in the Choo Choo park opposite, me! I am busy writing a TCTC FICTION BOOK called, "RESTAURANT VISITS" coincidentally! The Crystal Tea Cup BRAND BusinessMore

We visited The Eatery after having a bad experience with the pizza restaurant next door. They were very accommodating and when we said we were now in quite a hurry to get the food they made a special effort to assist us. While waiting they...gave us a milkshake on the house to calm us down and the order only took 10 minutes. What service and with a big smile! Wow! The burgers were delicious and not expensive. The portions were huge. We will definitely be back to this well run and efficient restaurant.More

Food was very tasty but portions were rather small compared to the price. Also they charged R10 per extra slice of bread. Rather exorbitant and making the experience very disappointing overall.

We ate here on a Tuesday for the burger special, and despite the volume of burger orders going through to the kitchen, our burgers were perfect. It had to have been extremely busy in that kitchen but they never dropped the ball. Burger was absolutely...delicious, great quality meat as well. Very generous toppings and sides. Can highly recommend the Karoo burger. YUM!. The wine that was served as part of the deal was also tasty. Great service and atmosphere.More

Everyone has a favourite hangout and we are no exemption. The Eatery Wood Fired Grill in Belvedere Square is our “go to” restaurant and it never, if ever, disappoints. The staff are always friendly and the food is always good. Except for their vegetarian burger,...“The Veganista”. Whatever happened to the huge brown mushroom in place of a patty? Or better still the chickpea and mushroom patty? Beetroot is a side salad or a garnish not a meal on its own, and even though it included quinoa, red kidney beans and barley all you could taste was beetroot. I have recently changed my diet to pesco-vegetarian so the Squid Salad was my choice. Delicious!! What more can I say. Fried squid tubes and tentacles in a mountain of broccoli, tomatoes (I had mushrooms instead) red onion and fried capers. My hubby chose the Managers Special burger which was a chicken fillet with goat’s cheese and avocado. Yummy Deluxe!! We were offered a Pinotage house wine to try and I simply rolled out. Ha ha ha!! I am in a wheelchair. Let’s talk accessibility then. Easy enough as there is a ramp, yet whoever designed the bays for car parking failed to allow space to get your wheelchair to the ramp if the bays are all occupied, so alternative scenario is go to Colcacchio’s in the same complex where there is no accessibility problems. Strike that, rather get one of the sexy waiters to carry you in. I must stress though that this is not The Eatery’s fault, all blame is on the complex management. Another inconvenience is the toilet. As a rule the restaurant itself doesn’t need to cater for the disabled so I am not going to complain. So go to The Eatery and indulge your taste buds in a food frenzy. Sate your thirst on a multitude of grape sins and you will not be sorry…..you will be well looked after by knowledgeable sexy waiters (ours was Keagan)……the next time it could be Armani….or Andre….or Matthew…….crikey did I leave anyone out? The ladies are lovely too but I will leave it up to my hubby to comment. The owner is Marius and is always willing to stop at your table for a chat. This is a family of smiles and great service in a bonhomie atmosphere. We always enjoy ourselves and will return again and again.More

Our daughter treated us to supper at this establishment. We went on a Monday evening when they have a steak special @ R115 for a 330gm rump or sirloin with fries or mash. We all ordered the medium-rare rump. The steaks were juicy, tasty and...done to perfection. We also came in time for happy hour specials which ends at 6pm so were in luck there. I had a caramel salted milkshake and my daughter and wife both had a chocolate milkshake that had dark chocolate pieces at the top and at the bottom of the glass. They were all delicious! The service was both friendly and efficient and we will certainly be going back. There is a also an outside play area for chidlren.More
