I have been here several times in the past, but when I returned last weekend the service was slow and inefficient, not because of the staff, but due to the manager's incompetence. The entire evening she had been micro-managing the staff which ended up impeding their service, not helping them. When we asked our waitress what the hold up was,... More

As I love steaks and have found 3 great restaurants in Capetown Central for steaks. Thought I would give Woodstock Grill and Tap a try. My wife could not eat her Rump as it was tough both plates of food were cold apart from the chips. Generally not a good meal we did advise the waitress to tell the Manager... More

I went on a date here. I ordered the 12 oz filet with mash and broccoli. The steak wasn't short of perfect. Service was great and so was the scenery. They offered me a bottle of their best wine (can't recall the name). Overall great experience.

We visited this restaurant on the 14th Feb. 2017 Valentines Day. We first visited here in 2015 when it was called ‘The Local Grill’ and on our first visit, we had the most amazing meal. That first meal we were treated very well by the staff, they explained about the meat ageing and the different options for having our steaks... More

We decided to reat ourselves to a pre Valentines day Burger and pint in Woodstock yesterday and Boy was I glad we did. Such amazing value - Cedric was excellent and the food was just great. The ice creams were excellent - some of the smoothest and creamiest Ive tasted - try the strawberry or salted caramel - really worth... More

I was visiting Cape Town from the UK and had seen recommendations for the Woodstock Grill & Tap. In tourist terms it's a bit off the beaten track (about 10 minutes by cab from the city centre). But it's well worth the effort. The staff will organise a cab back for you - and it will probably cost you less.... More

The main reason for going for lunch here was to try some of the beers, as the restaurant is attached to the brewery. The beers were excellent - we did a tasting and then settled on our favourite. The waitress was one of the most helpful I have ever had - we had a baby with us and although they... More
