We arrived at the restaurant on the dot of 9:00 pm - the manageress went to the kitchen to find out if they could still serve us .....bearing in mind that the website says they close at 10! After a very long discussion she returned to us to tell us that the kitchen had just closed. Unacceptable. My guest from... More

Grabbed the fish tacos to go on my way home this evening. Generous portion of delicious, crispy hake and three soft corn tacos. I could have done with a little more of the salsa, sauce and salady sides - all fresh and tasty but there was literally a tablespoon of each - not really enough for three tacos.

We were looking for a quick dinner for the family so that the kids could get to bed. Fortunately parking near some of the more popular eateries in Kloof Street was non-existent. We used to live close by and decided to try it again. The food was delicious from the children's large tasty burgers to our tacos special. For the... More

With a diverse traveling group, finding a suitable eatery is to say the least extremely challenging! We ended up, on advise of a Capetonian at the Woodlands Eatery. The decor, seating and atmosphere is homely, interesting and unassuming. The food is superb. The kitchen prepared plain (Margarita) pizzas for the young ones. These are not on the menu, but they...

My partner was giving biirth the next morning. we'd heard good things about Woodlands. I called, asked about vacancies, explained the circusmtances. When we arrived, the manager wasn't interested, just wanted to 'move tables', ensuring he sat as many as possible. I've been again since, it was ok - very much a media-hype driven story. Nothing special. Won't go again... More

Great pizza. I was surprised by the nice way they do prawns. Limited but tasty wine list. Friendly service. Easy going local eatery.

This restaurant had been recommended for pizza during our visit. Our first stop and the pizza was amazing! Especially the bacon and avo pizza! Definitely worth a stop!

Very cutely decorated eatery, with good service by our tall but discreet waiter and extremely flattering lighting (first daters, top tip: here's a great spot for you guys!). We parked on the grass just opposite the restaurant and got a table, without having to wait, at about 8pm on a Saturday night. Is that a good or bad thing....? The... More
