My partner was giving biirth the next morning. we'd heard good things about Woodlands. I called, asked about vacancies, explained the circusmtances. When we arrived, the manager wasn't interested, just wanted to 'move tables', ensuring he sat as many as possible. I've been again since, it was ok - very much a media-hype driven story. Nothing special. Won't go again... More

Great pizza. I was surprised by the nice way they do prawns. Limited but tasty wine list. Friendly service. Easy going local eatery.

This restaurant had been recommended for pizza during our visit. Our first stop and the pizza was amazing! Especially the bacon and avo pizza! Definitely worth a stop!

Very cutely decorated eatery, with good service by our tall but discreet waiter and extremely flattering lighting (first daters, top tip: here's a great spot for you guys!). We parked on the grass just opposite the restaurant and got a table, without having to wait, at about 8pm on a Saturday night. Is that a good or bad thing....? The... More

Love the Pizzas - if you only like the bog standard pizza then you may struggle. Love the chocolate fondant! What is really really not nice, only water tumblers no wine glasses. On several occasions when Woodlands had been suggested it was vetoed because of the tumblers!!

This place remains a favourite. Another lovely lunch. Two of us had the tacos for main, my husband a bun-less burger and we shared the broccoli tempura as a starter (enough for 2, 3 people to share). Small, but interesting wine list. We opted for the Gabriëlskloof Sauvignon Blanc; fantastic. Great service, flavorsome food, excellent Indie music, chilled vibe -... More

The décor at Woodlands is quirky and fun, the staff were friendly and efficient and the food was tasty. We all had pizzas and loved the thin, crispy bases and really tasty toppings. We had a relaxing and fun evening at Woodlands and appreciated their subtlety in getting us to leave (slowly turning off the lights as a sign that... More

We came here for dinner one night during our honeymoon having eaten at more formal places for several nights before, and wanting something more laid back. Huge portions and very good pizzas! Multiple members of the friendly staff were sure to congratulate us on our special occasion. Pretty young crowd, but overall a great place for a more casual evening.

Thank Melissa L
