“Lovely food, lovely view - terrible service”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

I love going to Under Oaks. I love their food and the view is great. Child friendly too. But.... terrible service. Uninterested owner and obnoxious staff. AND they don't answer their phone. 12 unanswered phone calls.

“Disappointment under the oaks”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

The setting is lovely. Child friendly as well but the food was very disappointing to say the least. I make a better salad at home in terms of presentation and ingredients at home and the pizza was very very poor. Canned pineapple in a such a restaurant is really unacceptable....Many other places I would rather go...

“Lovely outdoor setting, excellent pizza's”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Whether you choose a hot summer's night to sit outside, or a cozy winter night to sit inside, all experiences at this pizzeria are always a relaxing and great food experience. The menu is mostly restricted to pizza's and salads, but you will not be disappointed, they are the best.

“View sans service”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Always a pleasure sitting under the trees looking out over the picturesque Paarl Valley. Food is good but drinks menu is extremely limited.....and I gues one can't complain about the service if the isn't any. It could be a top venue if they show interest and passion for good service. I guess some of the good ratings are surely influenced by the view. COME ON UNDER OAKS.... MAKE IT HAPPEN WE WANT THIS VENUE TO BE BETTER!!

“Pizzeria with a view !”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

The pizza was very nice but the pasta rather bland - the view was great and a lot of locals' children enjoyed the lawns to play games
