We were a size able group that traveled to Swellendam as a nice Sunday morning motorbike drive, before hand, our orders were given by telephone, after a short discription of available pizzas on the menu, in order for them to be ready upon arrival. we were all seated outside upon arrival, drinks- americano, cappacino, chocochino, hot chocolate- we were ordered and were swiftly brought to warm our inners, we were still enjoying our coffee when our pizzas started appearing. looking delicious and tasting as good as it looks with enough avo or salami for those who ordered these. thin bases, bowls of garlic and chili were also available on the table. the price, the pizza, the service made the drive the worthwhile and of course left overs for dinner

I had the pleasure of spending some time at the Woodpecker Restaurant in Swellendam on 06/05/2013.
The food was of a very high standard as was the drinks. I had a pizza that was very good. Lovely thin and crispy base with lots of toppings. A very good balance of flavour and texture.

Will be going back again when back in town.

We were staying at local B & B and this restaurant was very near. It specialises in pizzas, pasta and other dishes and we ordered meatballs for one dish and schnitzel for the other.
There is little choice of wine, but the white provided was excellent. The serving staff were very nice but eventually embarrassed because we had to wait so long for our meal. We were even given a free glass of wine to compensate.
Eventually the food arrived and was excellent.
We never found out the reason for the delay and in many ways it did not matter, as we had nowhere else to go.
But somebody should have been monitoring the situation to avoid the problem.
Still recommended although only for the food and the embarrassed staff!

We were driving from Capetown to Mossel Bay and stopped a little bit by chance in this excellent pizzeria. It was excellent : the pizza were good with a thin dough; the red wine pinotage was a good choice and we appreciated the coffee. Don't hesitate to take a beak at the Woodpecker. Price is very reasonable.
