Eating Al Fresco

In late 2019, Eastgate Shopping Centre unveiled their revamped open-air Piazza. Bringing back all your favourite family-friendly restaurants, the Piazza offers a European-inspired summer dining experience. Share a meal with your loved ones under the stars and let the stress of the new year’s expectations become a distant thought.

Eastgate’s Piazza offers a variety of dining options. From Thai to Greek, Afro-Porto fusion and everything in between, their restaurants deliver a taste of the world right at your feet. With all this choice, it can be difficult to decide where to eat at Eastgate. So to help you make the all important decision, we have compiled a list of the best restaurants for family dining, date night and weekend takeouts:

Family Fun 

Now that the holidays are over, it’s back to cooking healthy weeknight meals for the whole family. But, we know that you need a break every now and then. That’s why Eastgate’s Piazza boasts a great family-friendly restaurant. Mozambik offers a play area to keep the little ones entertained. Combining traditional South African cuisine with the flavours of Mozambique, this restaurant is a must-visit for busy moms and dads, as well as the hungry little ones. Their impeccable service will also have you feeling as though you’re on vacation from the typical demands of being a parent.

Date Night

Spoil your significant other with dinner and drinks on the Piazza this January. You have a choice of modern Italian at both Piatto and Primi Piatti. Share a pizza or recreate Lady and the Tramp with your spaghetti. The view from Primi’s outdoor deck is unrivaled, offering a panorama of the surrounding suburbs. This spot is super romantic and perfect to enjoy cocktails at sunset. It’s not a holiday for two in Paris, but date night on the Piazza is still pretty good.

Quick and Easy 

Simply Asia is the home of weekend takeaways at Eastgate Shopping Centre. Their Thai-inspired menu takes you on a journey to the East, with bursts of sweet and sour in almost every mouthful. So, take a holiday from cooking over a weekend in January and enjoy a bowl of spicy noodles or hearty curry from Simply Asia. Their desserts are divine too, so save some room for an after-dinner delight.
