Four months after launching in Johannesburg, UberEATS has come to Cape Town! Here’s the offering and how it works.
Uber South Africa has launched UberEATS in Cape Town. Making it the second city in South Africa to receive the service - UberEATS launched in Johannesburg four months ago.

What Is UberEATS?

Truth_Hero UberEATS is an on-demand food delivery app powered by Uber. UberEATS partners with only the best local restaurants to get customers the food they want, delivered faster. Some of Uber’s restaurant partners, at launch, included; HQ, Nü, Societi Bistro, My Sugar, The Creamery, Gibson’s Gourmet Burgers & Ribs, Engruna Eatery, IYO, and many more. ‘Eaters’ in the Cape Town City Bowl, Camps Bay, the Atlantic Seaboard, Woodstock, and Observatory are currently the only ones who will be able to order using the service. The company is, however, looking at expanding the service.
“We received such a fantastic response to the launch of UberEATS in Johannesburg, we couldn’t wait to launch in food-conscious Cape Town. Our app shows immense interest in this area and we are so looking forward to offering Capetonians meals from their favourite eateries, without the time and hassle of going to get it themselves”, says Dave Kitley, UberEATS South Africa.

Benefits Of UberEATS

  • No queues.
  • Customised orders - prefer your dressing on the side, no onions, or gluten-free? Orders can be customised in the app.
  • Delivery time between 35 - 45 minutes.
  • Restaurants can receive feedback from customers.
“Uber thrives on feedback”, adds Kitley. “We want the UberEATS courier service to be of five star quality. That’s why users of the UberEATS app will be able to rate the service of both the restaurant and their food courier by using a ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’ rating system after the food has arrived.”
