A party of 10 of us visited here recently for dinner - my grandson chose the venue for his 10th birthday because they have a trampoline!!! The venue is starting to look a little tired and no ambience - no music either. Because I chose garlic snails without the cheese sauce they arrived in a bowl (not the usual serving... More

I went to Driftwoods twice in the matter of a week. After the first experience, I thought ok maybe they were having an off day, so tried it again. The first time we arrived there our waitress told us how tired she was. Really? I ordered Ribs and my friend Calamari. From previous experiences there the ribs were fantastic, but... More

Went for breakfast with a 2 year old. There is a beautiful rooster and a duck that are very friendly, as well as a good play area for children with a well protective trampoline just to start any childs' day. The waitron (Keagen) was very attentive and patient with the family. Breakfast was served hot and the coffee & cappucino... More

This restaurant not only has great food but on A Friday night even provides live entertainment. Gabriel has a stunning voice and really knows how to please the crowd. I also like the idea of the ducks and rabbits and this makes it so homely.

Before driftwood was a good restaurant, the menu was well balanced, the owner was very friendly and the staff motivated and delivering a perfect service. The food was excellent. Now it is a pizza and snack place, the new management is useless and the food very basic and not well prepared. A shadow of what it was unfortunately.....

What a lovely place - open air, lots of space for the kids, little chickens running round, geese walking amongst the tables, friendly and helpful staff and delicious food in spite of the fact that there was no electricity! Well done Team Driftwoods, you will definitely see us again.

Lovely relaxed venue, quality of food & service has remained excellent. We usually share a few starters, the snails, trinchado & crumbed mushrooms are highly recommended. Seven years ago we hired the venue for my husband's 60th birthday party complete with Cape Town Highlanders pipe & drum band. Buffet was fantastic & the evening was faultless. Lovely venue for children's... More
