You’ll find decadent milkshakes, Caturra coffees, craft beer on tap, artisanal gin and classic cocktails, and a great selection of local wine on our beverage menu.

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.

Mid-week table of 4. Sat on the enclosed veranda. Slight traffic noise. Cold, but heaters provided to make it comfortable. We all selected the2 portion option with either a starter with main or main with desert. We chose 2 starters and shared these between us chicken livers and calamari, Both good and easily shared between the 4. Main we all had steak and chips. Tasty meat cooked as requested. We shared 2 sweets, choc parfait, once again enjoyed by 4.

We came for the burger special happening on Tuesdays. A first for me in this restaurant. The burger was cooked perfectly, but I would have preferred to have the meat without spice mix (I just prefer to taste the meat). The service was perfect and attentive. The extra caramel added to my salted caramel milkshake made the difference!

The Eatery has certainly deteriorated in the past 6 months when I last visited. They were even out of Castle Lite and the 150 g Sirloin which I ordered was of poor quality consisting of around 25% fat and with no taste whatsoever. The rest of the family ordered lock down burgers which were marginally better but also somewhat bland in taste. Rounded off the meal with luke warm cappuccino's despite requesting them to be hot. Not sure what has gone wrong but we certainly will not be returning.

A steakery of note! One of the best steaks I have had in a long while. Cooked to perfect as ordered (medium rare) A good selection of sides available at an additional cost but also well cooked and presented - the cauliflower mash was excellent. Externally the restaurant looks small but has seating in the rear - suggest you book ahead. Our waitron “Sunshine” was just that and most delightful and attentive. Overall there is a great vibe!

We had an early dinner here, and were glad we chose the Eatery. We considered the tapas, but as we'd missed lunch we opted for Chicken Diane and Chicken Espetada. Both were well cooked and very tasty, and we added cauliflower mash and grilled veggies. All washed down with a couple of Dark 'n' Stormies. And the service was exceptional, even by South Africa's high standards.

Vegetables/sides not great, but steak (steak diane) was super tender and service was great. I just felt the sides that you order above your steak could be better. Sides didn't feel like value for money.

20 August 2022. Second time around, I gave you the benefit of my doubt. So, Saturday morning at 10:50, I walked in with my (Adult) Son, I am asked by the Host whether i am joining someone to which i replied, no. To which she asks " Table for One?" Please note, My son (a carbon copy of me) is standing right behind me... and, he is taller than me. My Reply, without wanting to make this person feel stupid by point out the obviouse, "No there are two of us." So, i went through to the outside seating, and got a table immediately, as there were two other tables occupied when we arrived and sat down. Waitress arrived within 3 minutes. We placed our water order and when that arrives we placed our breakfast order. Sporadically between 10:55 and 11:35 more people come into that outside covered area and breakfasts and meals are coming out to their tables. When i enquired about my order, the host was dumbfounded that i was waiting that long. Now... my table ( the one at the exit door and closest to the play area is very visible from the Hosts Station / Pay Station. Surely, someone should have noticed that we were not eating yet. No-one checked up on our table. Our waitress, which i believe was new didnt know what a breakfast cosisted of. when i ask a waitron " how may pieces of bacon is in your breakfast" and she doest know... I know its BAD MANAGEMENT and not that of the Staff. People, more so Student are so despirate to work that they often exargerate their experience... again, not their fault.... BUT YOURS. After giving them an ultimatum that i want my food on my table in 2 min... your staff came out and offered us coffee for the inconvenience. I can 99% gaurentee you that my order was not placed. Otherwise how do you explain that 6 or 7 other tables who arrived after us was served before us, while there was ABSOLUTELY NO SERVICE to my table. Then, to ad Insult to Injury, they tried to appease me with " dont worry, we wont charge you for your bottle of water." For your info: Early 2020, I had a sort of similar experience. with the clear LACK OF SERVICE. I thought to myself that two and a half years have passed since then and maybe they have upped their game. Boy, was i wrong. Really sorry that i cant critique your food.... I didnt get to taste it. by the looks of peoples review, i am sure its OK. But for me... Sorry guys. You have not gained me or any of my families as customers.

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 Business

Service was excellent, food delicious, I had the calamari and wife had a steak - everything was delicious and although the restaurant was very busy we had our food in under 10 minutes cheesecake was scrumptious dont sit outside on the patio if you can't cope with children playing as its pretty noisy from the playarea

Thank you for taking the time to review and rate us. We look forward to your next visit. The families usually leave fairly early so any 7 to 7:30pm bookings are usually ok outside and we have a 8 to 9pm happy hour. Kind Regards Marius Pieters marius@woodfiredgrill.co.za
