Old Vine Grille – Eastwood City

Old Vine Grille InteriorThe Old Vine Grille is cosy continental European / French restaurant located at the ground level of the Eastwood Mall in Eastwood City.

Restaurant layout

The restaurant is made up of three seating areas. An outside patio area, the main dining area and a side room which would be great for business meals or a group of friends.

Like many other restaurants located at the Eastwood Mall, the interior is quite narrow but stretches far back. They’ve maximised their space well and have made it feel open and airy with the use of mirrors.

The walls are decorated with a great variety of interesting pictures and homely plants which make for a very relaxed atmosphere.

Service

The level of service in the Old Vine Grille was perfect – they knew when to approach the table and when to give privacy. They were also quick to spot an unhappy face when there was a slight error in the order and fixed it up perfectly within a couple of minutes.

Food and drink

Watermelon shakeFor drinks we ordered watermelon shakes. They had the perfect level of crushed ice and watermelon, providing a pleasant and  smooth taste.

They were served quickly after ordering, unlike some restaurants that leave you waiting around until your food is served before giving you your drinks.

The food was also served extremely quickly, although this may have been helped by the fact that it was a rather quiet lunch period. The servings are generous, especially compared to other places in the Eastwood area, this is a big plus point that would make me want to return.

There was only one tiny thing missing.. they didn’t offer fresh cracked pepper for any of the dishes. This is a pretty standard offer in most restaurants and shouldn’t be something you have to ask for, it should simply be offered.
