If your group is exhausted and about to drop $30 on a piece of fish at the Waterfront out of convenience, or because you can’t bear to see another menu with the words “celeriac reduction,” reroute everyone straight to Woodlands Eatery. It’s located in Vredehoek, a residential area that’s only about a 10-minute drive away. You can sip a local Pinotage on the light-strung patio while trying to decide whose suitcase will be sacrificed to carry back all the wine you bought. Woodlands Eatery is a winner for any food preference and any circumstance, but the gnocchi is a must-order. It’s also one of the few places open on Sundays.
