absolutely disgusting service. such chaos and disorganization. While placing my order my waitress walks off WHILE I AM STILL TALKING TO HER. When we arrived no one at the desk, management running around all over the place. oUR PLATES TAKEN FROM KITCHEN ALL OVER THE RESTAURANT BEFORE FINALLY GETTING TO US. Everyones food did a tour of the place before getting to the table it was supposed to. TERRIBLE!!!!! I honestly feel this all is due to the management, she is rather rude to her staff too

VERY DISAPPOINTING!!! WAITED FOR SERVICE FOR 15 MINUTES WHEN EVENTUALLY I COMPLAINED. THE WAITER TOOK OUR DRINKS ORDER AND THAT WAS THE LAST WE SAW OF HIM. I COMPLAINED TO YOUR FRONT OF HOUSE LADY WITHOUT SUCCESS. NO ONE CAME TO OUR TABLE AFTER THAT. AN HOUR LATER WE WALKED OUT.

Food was good but portions were not adequately described. Menu on the day was much smaller than the full menu advertised online. Desserts were very good.

Hi Etas. I was very disappointed with your restaurant, especially the outside where the table was set up. it was just dirty and didn't look like a place fit for eating. I had to take my family and move to another restaurant. We didn't end up eating there.

Having made a reservation when we arrived the waiter out front seemed confused and had to go get help to show us to the table. 10 minutes later we called someone over for menus to order. The food was very oily and deep fried and after an hour we needed to leave for the concert and had to cancel the last item which took forever to arrive and it was the bread and hummus dish , bread was burnt beyond recognition. Will not be going back here as got food court takeout after our concert event.

If you know it is a show night and you have a limited menu ensure the food items can be prepped in advance and not to order to ensure fast delivery. Tapas dont need to be plated on massive plates as 10 tapas hardly fit a table for 5. We waited over an hour for our food and felt like we were forgotten because we sat outside. Your service while friendly was not great as I had to call the manager on duty and she brought us our food. Should there be a show or any other ocassion in the foreseeable future I would not recommend Etas.

Value for money was terrible. Expect great taste when prices are so high for such small portions - but was very unimpressed My partner and I both suffered upset stomachs throughout the day today and can only think that it was the food. The service was the only good thing we experienced, but would never ever return or recommend Generally a very very disappointing and negative experience sadly. If you are going to build up such a hype and charge such expensive prices - make sure the quality back it up, and sadly that was very much not the case

We were not aware that there would be a ‘show menu’ for the night. Very disappointing as the full menu looks amazing. We should have been advised of the show menu in place for the night. We ordered one of everything on the menu and it came in drips and drabs. It would have been great to have everything arrive together on a large platter or two for the table. The portions were very small and not value for money.

Luckily most of the food was good (although the bread and dips were a bit stingy) because the service left much to be desired. Although the staff were friendly, service was slow. The excuse given was that ‘everyone arrives at the same time’ but surely the restaurant should expect this and be better prepared to handle it?

We were disappointed in the Shoe Menu as we were not informed about this when we made the booking. We looked at your menu online and based our booking on that. Tapas would have been OK for some of us but it was not the choice for all of us. Tapas usually is an expensive menu choice as you cannot expect a “normal” plate of food. The kitchen obviously was not coping very well as we waited 30 minutes for our desert.

The service was atrocious. I have honestly never been to a restaurant that took 30 minutes just to bring me a bottle of wine. I also watched 4 entire tables leave before getting served their food because they just couldn't take it anymore. When the food came, it was very tasty, but I wouldn't come back because of the awful service. My boyfriend had to literally stand up twice and walk to the manager to ask when our wine was coming. It is such a pity, because with food so tasty, and a beautiful view over Pretoria, Etas could be a huge success. The portions were quite small, but still incredibly tasty. I only saw one waitress who knew what she was doing and actually made eye contact and her name was Caroline. I realise that it is busy on a show night, but that doesn't help the people waiting for food, stressing that they might not eat before the show. If there were more waiters and they were trained better, I have no doubt that the service would improve overnight.

The service was very bad! Slow or now service at all, so many people walked out of the restaurant when waited for a long time and no one helped them. Although there was only a show menu, even the food took long and had no taste, little sauce, just not acceptable for a restaurant. Will not go back to Etas again!

I booked for the harvest table, an advertised special, but it appeared to be unknown to staff . The manageress hurriedly tried to put it together. The dips were more of a pate and the assortment of bread turned out to be melba toast with soft parts.. The other dishes were not particularly tasty. I would expect that ETAS would be able to present a special advertised. It was an experience that I looked forward to as I have not encountered a tapas eating place in Pretoria but i was unfortunately disappointed. I hope you see this comment in a constructive light. Lastly I want to emphasize that I do not agree to your terms and conditions as this is not a booking but a review and I am merely clicking on terms and conditions in order to submit my review. This condition therefore serves as an amendment to your terms and conditions.

Spent 2h45 at your restaurant and in that time managed to get I drink served and a plate of dips and bread. Then spent 2hrs waiting for four ood to arrive which never did and we had to leave for the show. Staff were avoiding clients and giving false hope to clients.

Been wanting to try tapas for a long while and Etas was a wonderful introduction. Between my wife and I we started with the breads and dips (Tzatziki, baked aubergine, smoked beetroot, Sriracha lime yoghurt and biltong cream cheese, with the latter three being the best), followed by bean and corn salad (fine, but forgettable), adobo beef broth, pan fried halloumi and lamb-apricot lollipops (all three divine). After debating for a good 10 minutes whether there was space for more, we decided against exploding and jumped into three desserts - salted caramel, chocolate mousse sphere and strawberry tiramisu. Again, all divine, although the texture of outer layer on the salted caramel and tiramisu was not quite for me. Overall, left satiated and smiling ahead of the Myles Kennedy concert. Will be back when in the area.

Nice place. No fresh ingredients with my Rib eye steak. Steak was more than medium done but still soft. Your version of Mediterranean a bit disappointing. The very word means fresh organic herby food but it seemed more like Spur's food. Did not get a feeling of Mediterranean but more commercial. My son's meat was very soft but also no greenery . You could also introduce cauliflower mash. Where is the olive oil or balsamic vinegar, tomatoes, feta cheese? Those things should dominate your tables.
