Not bad, but not that great either. Certainly did not live up to the expectation. Inside and outside seating available. It was lovely sitting under the trees. The menu is small and the food tasty but value for money is questionable. No fish dishes on...More

Earlier today we had lunch at Eight. Let me start by saying that the food once received was of good quality and tasteful. However, the service (or rather complete lack thereof) was something else. It was clear from the start that there were way too...More

This is a small restaurant on the Spier Property that features locally grown food. It has a really nice outdoor seating area. As with everything there, service is friendly and fast. It is seasonal, though, so has limited hours during the winter. Loved it.

Eight is Spier's farm-to-table eating experience. Like its name, the restaurant is an expression of balance, cycles, harmony, infinity and abundance. The produce used at Eight is either grown on the farm or sourced from nearby farmers. Natural and organic ingredients are preferred and combined to create nourishing, healthy, and delicious food.
