45 on Eat Street is a relaxed dining establishment in a chic setting in Lifestyle Centre, Ballito.
Felt compelled to update my review after returning to the restaurant last night and having an incredibly better experience! Amazing the difference your waiter can make. The same lovely surroundings, the same tasty food, but this time a fun, jovial, attentive yet intuitive and respectful young gent serving us! He added to making the evening special! Glad I gave this a second chance. Happy customer!
The restaurant decor is beautiful. The food was tasty. However the waiter was overbearing and after trying to sell us a second bottle of wine between just 2 of us and generally far too present in our space, he didn’t accept that we didn’t want desert and gave a sales pitch about their deserts, until I had to let him know we’d come for a relaxed night out and he was making it unpleasant and stressful. He apologized sheepishly and we didn’t see him again. I don’t appreciate waiters who try to sell you the most expensive off the menu and bottles and bottles of booze and even the furniture if possible. It ruined our experience and we won’t go back soon. Management popped around once but didn’t seem particularly interested in how our experience was going. Much ado...
