Nice eat out joint

Went there with my wife and nine year old daughter. We were blown away as we always are in any of the Cafe 41's. Food was nice. Menu seems to change sometimes depriving me of some the dishes I had made my favourites.

One of the most pleasurable places to dine. Good food, excellent service and great ambiance. I always order their carrot cake every time I go.

Just had a wonderful at Café 41 in Eastwood Village. Had an amazing glass of Haute Cabriere Pinot Noir and an excellent Mediterranean lamb dish. It is a café, but sitting outside is more pleasant.

I agreed to go back to a Cafe 41, after having only bad experiences at other branches, as a client had suggested it. There is a sliding door between the smoking and Non-smoking sections, which by law needs to be kept shut. Except they don't. It's not practical to try and open a sliding door when both your hands are... More

The food was horrible, and the management spent more time chit chatting than addressing the complaints. While i must say the waitstaff was always courteous and welcoming. I gave the restaurant too many chances because of the waitstaff , but the food is just not worth it.

This is an acceptable but not earth shattering lunch place. I have just had my tenth lunch at cafe 41. Almost all of them were at this branch (there are half a dozen around Pretoria). I like it. Pretty honest food served well and promptly enough to make it work a busy person's lunch. The staff are courteous and helpful.... More

Ate at Cafe 41 for the first time last night. Had a great evening, with good food and more importantly great company! The meal was good, and the portions large. The menu is fairly basic but it does what it does well.

I frequently visit the Cafe 41 located at Cnr Eastwood and Pretorius Street, Pretoria - due to its location and easy access. The food are very cosmopolitan, caters for International visitor. I loved the Salmon stack breakfast with spinish and poached egg, and the interesting teas they have on offer.
