We were visiting the area and upon enquiring, Eat was recommended. The restaurant is easy to find with ample parking. The atmosphere is amazing and the food and service was the best we have experienced in a very long time. This was really an enjoyable afternoon with brilliant food, service and friendly faces!

We had an outstanding experience from start to finish. The food was delicious and the chef was willing to make small changes to accommodate dietary requirements. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. And it was excellent value for money. I would highly recommend Eat!

We eat here more regularly than anywhere else in town, mainly because we are always assured of good food and service and it is central. The Kingklip tonight was exceptional, as was the service.

Eat has become a bit of a standby for us since the menu is quite varied and every dish is well prepared. The staff are accommodating and go the extra mile to make sure you are satisfied. I had the Eat burger last time and was surprised to be served an excellent burger on a home made bun with chips... More

While the decor of this restaurant and, frankly, its name did not hint at a great experience, we certainly had one. Both our hotel and the wine store around the corner recommended that we come here.

I have never even had an average meal here. The waiters are good and the owner is always present and a very good chef and always happy to have a chat with guests. Worth a visit without question.
