Beautiful meal... the pork belly was out of this world... and all at the table agreed it was one of the best pork bellys they had ever had in a restaurant. Staff were friendly and efficient. Don't go past this lovely place. I would say it serves one of the best meals in Victor Harbor and you won't be disappointed.... More

We enjoyed dinner and the service was quite good but next day went... More

We have been staying in Victor Harbor with family and Eat was recommend to us!

The recipe for this dish is also in the Flavours... More
