We went to this restaurant with very high expectations. I must admit that the experience is truly German (even the demeanor of the staff). We ordered eishbeins and a schnitzel. The portions were decent, but the sides and sauces were skimpy, and the condiments: commercial stuff from jars. The weissbier was good. I've had the same fare at way less... More

On Wednesday we went out for dinner and ended up at this establishment after the other restaurant had a queue. What a surprise we had on the reasonable price of items on the menu. It compares and even beats famous chain restaurants prices. When the food arrived we got an even greater surprise when we saw the size of the... More

Having found their (pickled) Eisbien nice but a bit too slaty, I tried their Pork Shoulder, which is not pickled. I loved this meal - skin (crackling) was exquisitely nice and crispy, and the meat was very sumptuous - almost too much for me to eat in one sitting! My next visit will be to try their pork belly!

The best German food in South Africa. Ronald has won the International Eisbein competition. Truly overall a great experience.

I went for Eisbein and was told that they "pickle" their Eisbein, as is the tradition in the southern part of Germany. It was very nice, but I found it a bit too salty. The owner explained that they don't pickle their "pork shoulder", and I will definitely re-visit. Being served in any one of three languages (fluently) i.e. German,... More

We recently went to Eisbein and Co and was extremely happy with what we found. On arrival we were warmly greeted in English, Afrikaans and German by the owner himself. We immediately felt welcome. The decor is calm and cosy, with a distinctive German flair, albeit a bit old fashioned, but I think that is what makes the place great.... More

Fresh ingredients with some of the tastiest sauerkraut I've ever had. Feels like a little piece of Germany, right here in Pretoria. Will definitely be back!

My wife and I often choose to eat out in a relaxed, comfortable restaurant with good food, great service and is value for money. The service is very good and of course the Eisbein is the House speciality and a great choice. The owners Juta and Ronald are always on hand to ensure service and quality. 466Copper

Excellent eisbein and pork shoulder, crispy on the outside, tender meat. Low on character, but great for German food!
