Eight is a 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, creatively combined to create nourishing, healthy, and delicious food.
Eight’s menu changes seasonally.
Greens and fresh veggies come from Farmer John's food garden where they are grown without the use chemical fertilisers, pesticides or artificial chemicals. Our fillet, sirloin and sausages come from grass-fed cattle reared on Spier’s pastures, along with delicious eggs laid by happy hens that scratch around freely in the fields. Both the chickens and cattle are raised without the use of antibiotics or hormones. A children’s menu is also available to be enjoyed by kids after they’ve played on the rolling lawns and wooden jungle gym outside or discovered the secret bamboo ‘forest’ nearby. Spier’s award-winning wines complement the menu, along with freshly-squeezed vegetable and fruit juices and a selection of craft beers and artisanal sodas.
Eight’s décor embodies the restaurant’s ethos, with lights made by local artist, Heath Nash. The impressive ceiling on the terrace has been has been lined with over 10 000 individually crafted flowers made from recycled white plastic milk bottles, and lit with low voltage LEDs. The light fittings in the main part of the restaurant were made from recycled plastic bottles.
Eight was included in the 2016 Eat Out 500, a list of the top restaurants in South Africa as determined by a panel of food and restaurant experts.
