The food portions are big and the food is generally very nice. The waiters are very welcoming, polite and well trained. This place is really geared for watching sports. It is the best in Pretoria. It can accommodate big crowds. Book in advance if there are special games. It is located close to Loftus stadium which host both Soccer and... More

They might have a lot of specials, but their cocktails are bland and tasteless and the steak I had was chewy. The waiters are great though and you get a free bottle of sparkling wine on your birthday so I guess I'll go again. But if it was up to me and not my friends, and if I weren't on... More

Large portions of everything. Simply Put:Great Food. Nice setting, right opposite The Loftus Rugby Stadium. Good old fashioned South African food at its best. Highly recommend it.

The food here was good, I love the way the cooked the T-bone perfectly. But the service quality ruined my night. We waited the waiter/waitress for 10 mins to bring us the order. And it took like 30 mins for just 2 main dishes. Finally, I forgot to write down the tip in the bill and was about to take... More

This was the first place I ate upon arriving in SA. A friend recommended it for the steak and beer so we gave it a shot. Eastwoods has in and outdoor seating. We chose outdoors as the weather was nice and it provides a street side view which is great for people watching. The menu looked great with lots of... More

Eastwoods have been popular for years. Thr food is great. Student and young professionals. Vide is hipster and cool. Drinks and food are reasonably priced. The old kombi's look amazing. Good place to watch rugby or meet after the game!

Avoid the spare rib pizza, as it is more a ham mushroom and some pseudo ham/polony/spare ribbist sort of mixture. The waiters walk you up and down from section to section, until you decide on a spot ( decide where you want to sit before you get here). Avoid all alcoholic drinks that are not on special, or they are... More

The vibe is lively, plus the have plenty of TV screens to watch your favorite game. The place is big an can accommodate a large crowd. The staff is not impressive and lack attention. I was there on a Wednesday and it was not busy, so there was no excuse for bad service. The menu is attractive but the grilled... More
