I visited as part of a birthday party and have been at least three times since. Thin crusted pizza with delicious toppings (I had the Lamb on all occasions I've been there). Service is nice, venue is cozy with quirky decor (think antique lamps, different sized frames and mirrors). Located close to Deer Park.

We have been to Woodlands many times, and enjoy both the ambiance and the food, but the last time I visited, they outdid all our expectations. I can't commend them enough on their professionalism, great service, relaxed atmosphere, good food and ambiance. I held a small birthday party at Woodlands for about 20 people. The staff were relaxed, in control... More

Our 6 person party was treated with disinterest from the moment we were seated at the Woodlands Eatery. Granted, it was going on just after 3pm when we ordered our lunch but the kitchen was open until 330pm so there was no need to make us feel as though we were putting them out. The service by the male staff... More

We were a bunch of friends that made a booking 2 months in advance to dine a this restaurant as I had some out of town friends that wanted to experience Cape Town. I have been to this restaurant before and it was very nice, but maybe the size of the table this time was unmanageable. We were 12 people... More

The mussels were delicious. My friends ordered pizzas and they look amazing too. Will go back again for sure.

Service was shocking and the food a total let down. Looked good but failed to deliver in flavour. Bland pizza with toppings that I hadn't ordered. Otherwise a nice vibey venue.

The waitron was very accommodating and managed to get us a table on our first visit despite the restaurant being full. Only proviso was that we had to leave by 8pm. Our party ordered the house special - Larry's classic burger, with all the accompaniments, one person had the fish and chips and I had the brie, fig and rocket... More

This restaurant has fantastic food including delicious thin based pizzas with an assortment of set and special toppings. The meal portions are very large and are absolutely delicious. It is quite quirky and so not everyone's cup of tea. It is also very very poorly sign posted and we drove past it about 4 or 5 times before finding out... More

We were a table of eight last night (8 July). I booked late afternoon and was surprised we could get a booking for eight people at such late notice after having read it is always full. Little did I know that our table would be in the covered outdoor area. I felt like a second-class citizen looking at the lucky... More

Cosy, friendly staff with great pizzas. Perfect place to meet up with friends on a Friday evening and unwind before hitting the weekend. My seafood pizza was everything I wanted it to be and it seems as if pizzas are big at Woodlands - on the menu and with the patrons. Make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
