My mother and I enjoyed a fantastic Sunday luncheon. We had a beautiful Desiderius Pongraz which was very special, the prawns for starter were not undersized and de-shelled which made it easy to eat, the asparagus starter dish was fantastic. I enjoyed the duck main meal, it was well flavored and cooked to perfection, also not to fatty. My mothers... More

I love this eatery for its good old fashioned fare. The plate design is not too bad either. The hosts are always polite and welcoming which can count us in for many future visits.

We had a family gathering at the restaurant one evening. Our table was profesionally dressed and next to an open window allowing a nice fresh breeze. The specials were explained in detail and made to sound mouth watering. I had the Kingclip fish with fennel and ginger with vegatables. It was moist and flavourful. All the diners praised the food.... More

This is one of the best "formal" restaurants in Pretoria, in a great setting inside The Pretoria Country Club. The restaurant has definitely got a "classy" atmosphere. On this visit the food was up to the high standard of previous visits. The service and attention to detail is always excellent and the staff friendly. The menu offers a wide selection... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant is amazing and the service is impeccable! Great selection of wines. The chef's recommendations are spot on. Prices are reasonable, though higher than your normal restaurant in and around Pretoria. Definitely try the slow roasted Springbok shank, it is exceptional!
