Matteo and Maurizo are the passionate hands on owners who are passionate about food and created Woodlands Eatery. They have perfected their mothers’ recipes and become a staple in the bustling suburb of Vredehoek, in Cape Town. Their vision is for Woodlands Eatery to become the best local eatery in Vredehoek for people to come and relax.
The interior is warm and cosy with heaters in winter and bench seats and wooden tables with chairs. The atmosphere is very homely, with a gorgeous bar with exposed brickwork serving craft beer, there is also a spacious patio for those who enjoy dining al fresco, which is separate to the restaurant. The restaurant uses imported Italian products to ensure an authentic taste, and free range meat and a few vegan options too.
Popular dishes at Woodlands Eatery include the Fish Goujons, Caramelised Pear and Gorgonzola Salad, Lamb and Crème Fraîche Pizza, Butternut and Chickpea Burger, the Pork Taco and also the vegetarian option; a Barbeque Cauliflower and Chickpea Taco. To end off your meal with something sweet, the Fondant and Tiramisu come highly recommended.
