We had the most incredible meal at Giovanni's Eikendal. The food quality and quantity were fit for a king, their presentation is first class and their flavour combinations are simply outstanding. Friendly and professional staff and the gorgeous wine farm setting complete this amazing experience. It's so much more than fine dining, we highly recommend it.

We have never been disappointed at this cozy Italian eatery. We have tried and tested almost all on the menu and ALL is recommended. Service is always fast, friendly and professional. Great value for money and a very good wine/beer/spirit selection. Twice an unexpected dessert got delivered to our table...with compliments from the always happy Italian owner! Well recommended restaurant!!!

We have been visiting the establishment for over 7 years. It's a fail proof visit and the whole menu is delicious. From the friendly waiters to the personal attention from the owner Peter, it's a welcome place after a hard week!

Giovanni's is a great place! It's always busy, the food is delicious and Peter and his staff are very friendly. Golden hint: as cheesecake-lover I can highly recommend the cheesecake (and all the other desserts!)

This is our special place, I will drive up to 100km to visit this place and it never dissapoints. Good food and drink and the owner Peter is always attentive and will make sure you and your guests feel special. Best Italian restaurant in the western cape, done deal.

Never disappoints! The prawn spring roll is one our favourite starters! Pasta and pizza is always a winner and the manager recommended that we try the avocado meringue for dessert...out of the ordinary but yummy!!! Giovanni's impressed once again!!
