There is no menu but chef Daniel comes to your table and explains what specials he has prepared for you (approx.... More

Our family always visits La Madeleine for those grand occasions. Just the way that the owner makes one feel at home, and explains the menu makes for a mouth watering experience. Each visit has been memorable.

La Madeleine is a surprise box in the midst of Pretoria. As it is amazing that such great plates of food come out from such a tiny Kitchen. The menu is well executed, full of unique french flavours. The atmosphere is classy and enjoyful. The service however is not as good as expected as it is slow and a bit... More

Danielle, (the proprietor) has been preparing excellent food for years. My wife and I have been following him since the days that he had his restaurant near Advocates chambers. And then to Sunnyside. And then to Lynnwood. But we are not regular customers. We reserve visits for special occasions, and treat ourselves.
