EIKENHOF – Heading the restaurant is Peter Karam, the name behind many of Johannesburg’s longest-running and best loved establishments, including the Thunder Gun in Northcliff, Kyalami’s Blueberry Grill, and Chef and the Fat Man in Fourways.
As we drew up to the restaurant, lightning and thunder with heavy rain and wind descended on us but it certainly didn’t dampen our enthusiasm and the reception we received as we entered the restaurant.
The service is exceptional, not to mention the amazing food. For starters I couldn’t decide between Salt and Chilli Calamari or Feta and Olive Crumbs, so had a little of both. My husband chose Halloumi Cheese. Absolutely delicious!
For our main meal I selected a prime Fillet Steak, which was cooked to absolute perfection, my knife cut through it like butter, served with Dijon Mustard Sauce, crispy golden potato wedges, creamed spinach and butternut. Colin enjoyed Grilled Falkland Calamari with lemon wedges, crispy chips and vegetables and he said the chips were the best he’s ever tasted.
