Owners description

Their motto at EAT is ‘food should be fresh and simple’ - and to this we like to add ‘and lovingly prepared’.

A gem among Hout Bay restaurants: EAT is an easy-going, versatile restaurant which prides itself on skilfully prepared, fresh, wholesome food and outstanding service.

Guests have the option of dining indoors or in the peaceful outdoors, lunching under shady plane trees or beside the pool when the weather is good. Whether you are local to Cape Town or visiting them from afar: while on business, as honeymooners, or holidaying with your family – they invite you to relax and enjoy EAT’s tranquil setting.

They love it when families join us for a meal, and so they offer a children’s menu of such delicious fare that that they regularly have adult patrons ask to be allowed to order what their children are having.

Your well-behaved dogs are welcome to come along and run around outside. Breakfast at EAT brings new meaning to the word ‘continental’. Their á la carte breakfast menu includes a variety of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes with South African influences.

Join they for lunch and choose from a light lunch or Asian menu. On Saturdays, in the warm months, they will barbeque freshly caught fish to order.

EAT offers a delicious assortment of cakes for morning or afternoon tea. Their Executive Chef would be delighted to create a bespoke high tea for your special occasion.

Choose from their “Tapas for Two” menu or explore a marriage of diverse cultural influences and flavours from their chef-inspired dinner menu. They also have an Asian menu.

Join us on Friday evening from 17h00 – 19h30 for drinks and snacks, and enjoy the live Jazz
We offer a comprehensive and interesting wine list, with many wines coming from wineries located in close proximity to Hout Bay Manor Hotel. We are confident that our wine selection will satisfy the most discerning pallet.
