Eat Out isn’t only SA’s best guide to SA’s best food in name, we’re also top in the game. We have multiple awards ceremonies – with lots of bells and whistles around them – throughout the year.

The Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards

Launched in 1998 and and presented at an awards celebration held in November, the annual Eat Out Restaurant Awards celebrate the South African restaurant industry, with accolades including the Top 10 Restaurants, Chef of the Year, Restaurant of the Year, Service Excellence, and the Eat Out Woolworths Sustainability Award.

The Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Best Everyday Eateries

These awards recognise readers’ favourite restaurants. The winners are determined by highest average star ratings – awarded by the public and critics on and the Eat Out app – over a year-long period.
