“EXCELLENCE ON A COLD WINTER'S NIGHT”
Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

It was a cold night but a warmth and good feelings happened upon entering Wickerwoods. We have eaten there on a number of occasions and for us, although not the cheapest, their pizza's for us are the best in town. Joel's success lies in the fact that he does not skimp on what he uses to make his meals, nothing but the best. Servicewise never had a problem and have found the waiters and waitresses attentive but unobtrusive, if you have had a problem you can always inform Joel as he will visit you at least once during the meal. Not a cheap evening but always enjoyable because of the quality of food and the excellent service. Will most definately be back.

“Great food, let down by service.”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

I used to be a huge fan of Wickerwoods but the service has slipped over the years and there is a distinct air of arrogance about the service. As above, great food absolutely love the Lamb Shank but will be a while before I return.

“Good food”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

Wickerwoods is an upmarket restaurant with tasty food and excellent service, with the chef coming out to chat to the guests. Never been disappointed there.

“The best in PE”
Reviewed December 14, 2011

As a Cape Town based tourguide/operator I visit Whickerwoods about 6 times a year. I have never ever had anything but the best service, quality of food and value for money from this wonderful establishment. The owner (Joel) is 100% hands on in whatever happens in his restaurant and visiting the venue is always a delight for my visitors as well as myself. Woud I recommend the restaurant? You bet I would and to the recommendation would goes the extra tip of "Dont miss the leg of lamb"
