The restaurant was fairly busy when we visited mid week which is always a good sign! We were served delicious food and found the value for money fantastic. We sampled amazing pizza, chicken in breadcrumbs and home made pasta too. All washed down by a lovely bottle of red. Would highly recommend.

My family are pizzaholics and I can honestly say that the pizzas at Woodpecker are the finest that we have ever had both in South Africa and overseas. Simple wine list and good prices. I wish we had more time to check out the deli and the rest of the menu, but I will make a point of returning.

We arrived at the restaurant in torrential rain. I had prebooked it as it was just down the road from where we were staying. We needed something to lift our spirits after a long hard day on the road and all of us were tired, wet, cold and hungry. We received an very warm and enthusiastic welcome from the owner.... More

I return to the Woodpecker every trip I make to Swellendam. I stick to their pizza, which is truly thin based excellence. The ingredients are always fresh, the service is friendly and fast, and it's super value for money.

Despite loadshedding, we had the nicest pizzas at this restaurant! Generous glass of wine (by the glass) and plenty of space for the kids to spread themselves with colouring books and toys. Friendly waitress and food portions were just as generous. Yes, it is just a pizza and pasta restaurant - but really deserves and excellent review for what it... More

Lovely thin based pizza in a cozy atmosphere. Power outage was planned and arrangements was made in advance to light candles and to pay by credit card. Food was delicious!
