My wife and I went to Cynthia's for a mid-week meal and were seated immediately on arrival and without a reservation. Note.... parking could be a problem on weekends, however, there is a large shopping centre close by (Brooklyn) with ample parking. The greeting was warm and friendly and the list of the evenings "specials" was well articulated. We ordered... More

I took my wife to Cynthia's on valentines day. The atmosphere and service of Cynthia's was outstanding, but the food was very much below standard. Due to the very limited special menu on valentines day, I had the steak for main course, which was a big disappointed. The starters was good and desert excellent, but overall the food was a... More

Very classy place with a great wine list. The food is perfect, and beautifully presented. Unlike many meat and potato places, the sides are very nicely done, and the salads are fantastic enough to stand on their own. The ingredients are top notch and the flavors always just right. There's a nice variety of offerings on the menu and it... More

As far as the food goes, I have no complaints. I've tried the prawns and the Cynthia's fillet and thought they were both excellent. The restaurant also has a comfortable bar area with couches which I really like. While the wine list is pretty good in terms of its selection, the prices are rather absurd, even by restaurant standards. I... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Pretoria. Their salads are fantastic. I love their Greek salad and their house Indigo salad is also great. Their other food that I have tried is also excellent. The beef and salmon are good. Their pork ribs are the best I've ever had. Their wine list is extensive. You can sit inside or outside.... More

This is a restaurant with a totally different atmosphere. The food and service is faultless and efficient. The wine list and bar area just finish an evening off so well.

Ordered the wild boar, massive disappointment. Reminded me of a carvery lunch in a dodgie pub in the midlands of Ireland. Recooked several times under a hot lamp, smothered in a sickly sweet gravy accompanied by deep fried cubes of polystyrene (root veg). The green beans were nice, I guess.

They had a Christmas Lunch available and you had to choose beforehand which set menu option you want. The Booking was... More

It is usually a bit of risk to go to a restaurant because these days quality and service are not what it should be. However, having my birthday at Cynthia's Indigo Moon was the best idea ever - the quality of the food is A+++ and so is the service. One of the few restaurants I can recommend without any... More

Food is the fuel for the soul and a good meal is alway the best way of fueling up. At Cynthia's you can fill up on their excellent choice of food from the menu. The experience is what makes the dining out at Cynthas all worth it. The personal attention, style and flair just makes any meal at Cynthas one... More
