One of our favourite local spots

We just love this place! It's warm, casual, and welcoming, with friendly service, a nice vibe and great food. The portions are fairly big, so there's good value for the money as well. Plus, they bring fresh bread and three delicious dips as a starter at no charge! Their menu is a good size, so... read more

Our "usual" favourite restaurant was closed today ... so, we decided to give The Green Eggplant a whirl. Nice casual atmosphere , fresh bread with 3 assorted spreads served while waiting for our meal. Extremely large salad potions , nice dressing , however the grilled chicken was over cooked !!! Somewhat difficult to cut & even more difficult to chew.... More

We have visited this restaurant a number of times, and it used to be the place we chose when we are in the Beach area. Unfortunately, the quality seems to have deteriorated. On a recent visit, we had the Beef Goulash where the beef mostly consisted of fat. The Greek salad was OK but offered a poor value at $14.00.... More

Let me start by stating I have gone here for years and, because of location and decent prices, I have looked away many times. However, this November was the final straw. My fiancee and I were very excited to take our friends from New York to the beaches and dine at the Eggplant. The food came to my American friend... More

Been here many times and never disappointed. Staff and Owner are very friendly and accomodating. The food is always fresh, hot (if necessary) with an excellent presentation. Food is always full of flavour. Very reasonable prices for what you get. For those who say it is expensive, speaking as an Entrepreneur, there's rent to pay and a lot of expenses... More

I have been to this place a few times and love it, the food is very good, breakfast, lunch and dinner were all good,there are lots of choices. The price is reasonable, the restaurant is always full when i go there, my only issue is finding parking at times, the staff ate very friendly.

We crashed there a Sunday night expecting a nice place to dine. Even if the decoration/atmosphere was ok, the service was awful and the food very poor. We had 2 waiters, the first one waited 5 good minutes to let us seat even if the restaurant was actually empty. The second one could barely speak English and took whatever HE... More

So this place is a bit pricey... but totally worth it! There's something on the menu for everyone. A lot of options that are well made. They offer a delicious combinations of breads and dips to start (for free!) and their sweet potato fries are some of the best I've ever had!
