Business Information




In 2020, after years of careful planning, Eileen Otto realised her dream of owning a restaurant when she opened Eileen’s Eet en Geniet.

Since then Eileen’s, as it is fondly known by the locals, has grown from strength to strength. The restaurant is a laid-back gathering spot favoured by both locals and visitors to Gansbaail.

In 2023 Eileen rebranded Eileen’s Eet en Geniet to Eileen's Seafood Paradise, when she moved to premises on the main road.
