I Finally went to Woodlands Eatery in Deer Park, Vredehoek last night and what a beautifully decorated, welcoming addition to the area.
Woodlands Eatery is a Bistro offering new flavour combinations and Seasonal Produce. The Prices of the meals on the menu are so affordable at nothing over R100, mostly falling between R50 - R80. On the menu you will find a few salads, one was Gooseberry and Goats cheese , there was a mussel soup and a pizza that I can remember on the starters. For Mains there were about 6 different pizza's, Sirloins steak with Bearnaise, Sole with baby potatoes and a couple of other options.
The menu is not big but changes once a week. The only complaint I had was that there was no sirloin or Sole left that evening so the already small menu did not leave us with much options but I am glad as it forced me to try the Grilled calamari and prawns on Naan bread with loads of avocado, topped with a cherry tomato and nectarine salsa, it was so alive with colour, served on a big wooden board, a light fresh taste with a zingy flavour from the nectarine salsa and lime juice. The other people at the table had the Parma ham, goats cheese and nectarine pizza which was thin with bright fresh colours and a light fresh taste also great especially on a scorching Cape Town evening.
We sipped on a Chenin Blanc and some Darling Beer which has an amazing Desserty sweet Fragrance in your nose with every sip.
The service was friendly and welcoming and the vibe from the guests was happy and cheerful. The ambience is made warmer by the festive fairy lights against the wall and the lovely decor.
The total bill for 4 people with 1 bottle of wine plus another 2 glasses, 4 beers, a bottle of sparkling water , 4 Jagermeisters and 4 main courses came to R750 with the tip.
I will definately go back to Woodlands again.
