My wife and I visited for dinner tonight. From the booking through to the paying everything was great. My wife had mushroom rossoto and I had Thai green curry - both tasty and great value for the price. The service was very good and the log fire made it warm and cosy. The seating is very comfortable and the outside... More

The restaurant was recommended by the owner of the B&B we were saying at nearby. The menu is such that it will meat all tastes. We were there on a rainy and chilly evening but the gas fire in the area we were seated made it very comfortable. Our waitress, Tammy, was excellent and such a delight. She knew her... More

We as a family decided to celebrate a birthday at eats. Thanks to the staff for you hospitality and to Darren for you friendliness and great service. Your friendly heart really was enjoyed by the young folk. The food was outstanding and well presented. Lovely quaint restaurant with warm atmosphere. See you all soon again.

We were on our way to Cape Town and dropped in for lunch. The reception was friendly and professional. The decor is modern South African and worked. See Photos including gas brazier. The service was very good but was let down by the chef being new and unable to deliver the orders off the menu. Allergies were well handled. The... More

our charming hostess handled our 'concern' about being drowned out by live music by giving us a starter table so we could evaluate the noise level.....really. We duly moved into the main room and made our meal last about 2 hour, the atmosphere was so good. I can't honestly remember what we had, but the wine was fine, and so... More

By chance I found this restaurant through TripAdvisor otherwise one might very well have missed it. It looks very simple on the outside but inside is a whole different story. The setting one level up to the right of the entrance is again quite straight forward but is accompanied by a lovely gas fireplace and some soft art. The food... More

Thank you for your lovely review. We're so glad that you enjoyed the honey roasted pork belly and the Jack Daniels toffee pear and I have conveyed your compliments to the chefs. However, I would just like to mention that the pork crackling is made on site and it takes three days to prepare. I do hope that we will... More

For a truly excellent meal at a reasonable price in lovely, calm surroundings, you cannot better EAT. The Karan beef rump steak cooked by the tall man, Darren, is a personal favourite. Their service is prompt, professional, and unobtrusive - simply excellent.
