Something different

Living in the area this is one of my regular spots due to a really laid back approach to life. If you want fancy, stay away. If you want real people, good enough service, pretty damn good food, regular locals, dogs, friendly waiters, laid back lazy life approach, good setting and many more special... read more

I went to have breakfast, thinking it would have to be good if one considers its location and proxsimily to the beach and the amount of surfers that must use it. I ordered bacon and eggs sunny side up with toast, and a pot of Rooibos tea. The tea arrived and I let it brew and then poured the black... More

Pretty good for breakfast, pizza and burgers good value for money and good service, close to Milnerton beach. Place is run down and scruffy really could do with a make over, smoking is not well segregated and is probably in breach of health regulations because of that. Certainly worth a visit.

We dropped in for breakfast a few times and I always liked it. Was tasty and good quality every time! It's directyl next to the Milnerton Golfclub and the beach. Park in front or walk along the beach as we always did. I took the "mega breakfast" and a mug of coffee. You should try it, a lot of locals... More

My wife and I live in the area, and have been popped in at Ilha, on quite a few occasions. We normally pop in on a Saturday morning, after our post breakfast walk on the beach, with our little one. There is a very relaxed atmosphere, and the service is good. The food is good, but I particularly enjoy their... More

Iv been frequenting this small little secret 'Ilha' in Woodbridge Island - and in a way would like to keep it one ... however - I simply have to state the fact: the calamari is to die for :-) Besides that - the salads are always crips and fresh, along with the other items i'v had on their menu.

I have been going to Ilha for years. The menu is great and varied so you have a wide variety of choice. Slush cocktails, chilli poppers, pizza's and their baskets are amazing. I love the poppers and ribs! Lekka Friday after work vibe or weekend breakfast spot. Great service with a hands on owner makes for a great experience. Any... More

We have visited Ilha on numerous occassions. Even though we live just down the road, it never occurred to us before to go down there, but once we had, it was so awesome that we do it on a regular basis now. My hubby and myself find Ilha to be relaxing, friendly, a place where you can go to unwind... More
