Family dinner at the Woodlands Eatery in Cape Town, South Africa

It is so good to be back home in Cape Town, South Africa. It has been a busy few days traveling across the world, attending my ten year high school reunion (blog to be posted once we have received the photos), and I’m still unpacking after another year abroad.

Last night we went on our first family dinner in about a year!
My Dad suggested we go to one of his favourite Cape Town restaurants called the Woodlands Eatery in Vredehoek, Cape Town. I’ve always heard about it but hadn’t been so was looking forward to wining and dining.

As we were seated, I admired the cosy, artsy stylish decor which is almost like an urban woodlands. The walls are decorated with arty, chic artworks made from natural materials. If I were to open up a restaurant I would go in a similar direction in terms of interior design.

After toasting to our family reunion and catching up on news we enjoyed some wine and ordered salad starters. I can highly recommend the Pear and Gorgonzola salad as well as the Roasted Butternut salad.

One word.

Delish.

Delicious Woodlands Eatery salads. Healthy and so tasty!

Our main courses were equally tasty. They included the Beer battered Hake, Cheese Burger, Chicken Roulade and a Gooseberry salad. Apparently the Lamb pizza is phenomenal which I will try next time. It was so refreshing to enjoy fresh, healthy and delicious South African food after eating at mediocre American restaurants with uniformed menus (there are, of course, exceptions).

It was such a lovely evening with great food, wine and even better company. I will definitely return to the quaint Woodlands Eatery and will hopefully take some friends from abroad to share the great experience.
