Living here for over 2 years now, the Woodlands Eatery is my favourite "go-to" restaurant in Cape Town when I have visitors or special guests to bring out for a night. Excellent food, welcoming and homely service and great atmosphere.

Very disappointing experience on Friday night. A friend invited me after sharing the menu which clearly stated a few vegan options marked V.G. When I asked the waitress to confirm if the gnocchi was vegan, she said no, it had egg and so did the...More

Hi Carmen, We are terribly sorry for your experience with us but definitely there was a communication mistake. Our pasta contains eggs and the vegan option was related to the sauce but we will make it clearer next time we print the menu. The pizza...More

Slightly quirking internal decor, but good service, but the place was very quiet at lunch. Good range of food and modest price.

Exquisite Italian setting. Amazing food and brilliant hosts. The best ‘al salmone’ pizza around! Very conveniently located on Deer Park road in Vredehoek. A beautiful position at the foot of Table Mountain.
