Cuisine focuses on great fresh dishes that is both familiar and tasty. Items like eggs benedict, charcuterie boards with fresh bread, cheese and olives can be ordered as well as pastries and sweet desserts.
Terrible service. Food very below par. Maitre D unable to resolve anything. Ruined Mother’s Day. No apologies for anything other than excuses. Don’t be fooled by the view and proximity to La Colombe.
Lovely view but being served 4 crumbed fish nuggets and 7 chips when we ordered the beer battered Hake for R168 is not cool. That's ok - just apologize that you'd made the wrong thing and do the right thing. But the manager (maybe owner) then tried to convince us that it was the right thing, they no longer do hake fillets, just "goujons"(nuggets) and no longer do beer batter, just crumbs. Yet this was news to the waiter. I then asked what would I get if I ordered the kids nuggets and chips for R68, and he said the same thing!!!! Didn't even blink. We had to refuse the food before he went off to check with the chef for a second time. Then came out and said the chef will now make us the beer battered Hake. I asked where he suddenly got the fish and batter from and he just laughed!!! The manager was looking us right in the eye and tried to sell us a kids meal for R168 full knowing they got it wrong. The fish eventually came, all fine. Later, the chef came out but didn't introduce himself, just came round and said there was a miscommunication between him and the staff. Didn't apologize. I had to ask the waiter who that was. The waiter was very embarrassed the whole time about how we were being treated, saying that it's high time someone spoke out against the management. They've blocked my review on Facebook to manipulate the review rating.
I took some friends to Green Vine Eatery on Sunday the 14th of October for a complimentary meal that the restaurant offered me after a previous visit where there was a misunderstanding regarding our pre-booked roasts. After this first visit I contacted the manager to tell him what had happened and he was, from the outset, incredibly apologetic and willing to make amends in the form of a complimentary meal for 4 people. I wasn't able to book immediately but even a month and a half later he was willing to accommodate me and my friends on a day that was suitable for us. And when we finally went they really went out of their way to make us feel like VIP. The entire meal - mains, deserts and drinks - was on the house. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I take my hat off to the management and staff at The Green Vine Eatery, who graciously owned their mistake and went out of their way to compensate for it. This to me epitomises good service and deserves a 10/10!
First time visit here with my 11 year old daughter and a friend. Very nice, cosy ambience. Was quite chilly so the doors were closed and two fireplaces kept the place warm. Sure it's lovely to sit out on the terrace when it's warmer - some hardy souls were - can't be South Africans! Nice to find a venue that's also cosy for Winter visits. Breakfast was delicious and nicely presented. Prices reasonable.
Had a look at the lunch menu which had some appealing choices.
We'll definitely come back again.
Absolutely fantastic - I had my 20th birhtday brunch here and it was lovely. The service and staff were great, very welcoming and friendly - the food was delicious. The Green Vine Eatery is also surrounded by the most gorgeous views. If you are looking for a place to relax with family and friends over a delicious meal or looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion, I would highly recommend this restaurant. A truly wonderful experience, and a birthday I'll never forget, I'll definitely be back!
