Eight is a pioneering farm-to-table eating experience. The produce used at Eight is either grown on the farm or sourced from nearby farmers. Natural and organic ingredients are preferred and combined to create nourishing, healthy, and delicious food, which diners can enjoy in a beautiful setting next to the Eerste River.

Spier chose a symbolic name for the restaurant, something that captures the essence of the experience. The number 8 signifies balance, cycles, harmony, infinity and abundance. It also represents Spier’s closed-loop approach, and its integration of natural cycles into business cycles.

 

The chefs at Eight combine these ingredients into simple but delicious dishes which accentuate the natural flavours and qualities of the food. The standard menu will be small and seasonal, and specials will make the most of daily availability to ensure that guests enjoy healthy, wholesome, delicious and nourishing food at Eight.

Spier’s award-winning wines will complement the menu. Other beverages include freshly-squeezed vegetable and fruit juices. Because of Eight’s focus on health and whole foods, there will be no carbonated drinks available.

 

A key component of the décor features lights made from recycled bottles by renowned artist, Heath Nash. Heath was given the task to interpret the space creatively, and design lights specifically for Eight.

In the front section of the restaurant, the ceiling—measuring 14m long by 3.5m wide—has been lined with over 10,000 individually-crafted flowers made from recycled white plastic milk bottles. This extraordinary feature will be lined with low-voltage LED lights to create a striking effect. The double-volume section of the restaurant will include clusters of lights also made from recycled bottles that have been cut into strips.
