Probably the best setting in Pretoria

Was there for an uncomplicated dinner with a former colleague on a Saturday night (after rugby match). The Bulls' win might have influenced the enjoyment.... the half empty room didn't bother us. Found the setting really excellent. Service was also outstsnding. We opted for game dishes. Both... read more

The food is nice, some times we have found that it does lack some seasoning, the service is not too bad either, wines are good...but more attention can be paid to assist with the right wine selection.

I was spoiling myself - it doesn't happen often. I went exploring and came across this cosy place. The wine list didn't have your typical names - then again I don't fine dine enough - so I chose the Ernie Els chardonnay and while they provided an entre. Main course was simple but well made, and the service staff don't... More

I've eaten here before and was impressed, but was rather disappointed this time around. The special of Rump with Chorizo and Gorgonzola sauce turned out to be Rump with Biltong shavings & Pepper sauce. All 3 in our party of 10 who ordered this special got the same thing. We didn't complain because we were guests at this business lunch... More

The exterior is unremarkable but once you step inside you are in awe of the high ceiling, deep woods with bookshelves and wine bottle decor. A very lovely setting. Reception and service was very professional and friendly. They have a very extensive wine list that is reasonably priced. Starters and entrees were served in a timely, relaxed manner. The food...

We had our year-end function on Friday 5 December and looked forward to a lovely wine&dine experience.We organized for a babysitter to keep our 2 children at home entertained. Unfortunately things quickly went pear-shaped: 1 waitress for a group of 22 people wanting drinks at the same time( not her fault but the manager's) We ordered food from a prebooked... More

Last night we decided to have our year end dinner at Cynthia's, as we did the previous year. The décor and ambience of the restaurant is very pleasant. The Manager and hostess were very attentive and service was good. Unfortunately not the same can be said about all the dishes. We decided to try things on the menu that we... More

When you have a table of 12 it is not easy to get the food to the table hot and tastey. They got that right with starters and mains. I enjoyed the wine and whisky selection. Everyone enjoyed their food, unfortunately my peppered steak was over done which took away from the wonderful taste. As the host I did not... More

We came here for lunch in 2013. The menu was weak and the service was very slow even though there were few customers. The food was bland and at times overcooked. The restaurant needs a new menu and a new chef. How are they going to do that after losing so many clients?
