We eat here at least once a month. Excellent and vastly experienced career waiters like Clem will make sure your lunch/dinner is a memorable one. The menu has a lot of wonderful options, the dry-aged fillet steak is top shelf and the wine list is impressive and affordable. The recipe for success i believe is that La Pineta is a smart-casual family restaurant with a great atmosphere, great service and lovely food at very affordable prices. There is a large lawn with a jungle gym for the kids plus a lovely covered deck outside for those hot summer days. We have never been disappointed in all these years going to La Pineta and we will always go back under current family management. It's a beautiful place which makes you feel at home, but they probably cook better than you! Booking is essential.

My family and I have been to La Pineta numerous times. We have also hosted our son's birthday parties here. Food is excellent the staff are accommodating and they have a fab play area for the kids.

We are getting married at Forest44, right next to La Pineta in October and had the privilege of tasting Chef André's food last night. The food was heavenly, from the very first canapé to the last bite of dessert. The waiter was also very attentive and made an excellent wine recommendation. To top it all off, the view is breathtaking if you arrive just as the sun is setting and the vibe is very cozy and intimate!

The view is pretty! The food was terrible! Paid R100 for a piece of chicken. Asked for a spoon got it after the third person we asked. Management was non-existend and gave us no reason as to why we had to wait an hour and fifteen minutes for our food. After we complained twice. The waiter seemed drunk and then told us that he had been drinking all night....
