Description: Cafe 41 is a sophisticated, cosmopolitan and informal venue. With our fans twirling lazily from the ceiling, burnt orange walls split in half with trendy tiny tile features with tables and chairs in sleek combination creates a Cassablanca feel, perfect to join friends or for business. With a vibrant atmosphere, it is a place where a meal means pleasure: pleasure in eating, enjoying the company of friends and drinking good wine. The cuisine is creative, balanced and full of flavours, aromas and textures. Cafe 41 has received the Diners Club Gold Award for Best Wine List of the year 2007 - 2010 and received the Diners Club Platinum Award for Best Wine List of the year in 2011 - 2012 and in 2013 we were awarded the Diners Club Gold Award for Best Wine List of the year. We have also been effusively praised as one of Pretoria's top seven restaurants. With current stores in Groenkloof Plaza, Eastwood Village, Riverwalk, Hazelwood and Rigel.

Stayed in Pretoria for 3 weeks and Cafe 41 was one of my fave stops. Extensive menu for bfast, lunch, and dinner choices. Had the chance to try everything! Menu recommends wine with meals and it works everytime! Desserts are great! Love the red velvet cake. Cuban cigars available too! Expensive? Geez, average of $10.00 for a main dish! That's... More

This Cafe41 is in a nice location and the seating outside is very elegant. Enjoy the bamboo surroundings and atmosphere, although the menu (and wine) is very expensive for the restaurant style.

While the wait staff is good and friendly, they seem to change chef often the food never taste the same, and when you bring it to management's attention they are very rude about it.

The best place to meet, chat and eat in Groenkloof. If it's a quick bite to eat, just a coffee or a whole meeting, there's place for you at Cafe 41. Students, business people, old friends, everyone meets there. Read the paper, have cake (the milktart is divine) or chicken livers, even something more substantial. You can't go wrong, see... More

I was ther for dinner. Actually the service is very good and the place very nice. I had fish meal that was not very tasty and well cooked. The starter of calamari was good and the desert on the average. Maybe it is better to go there for having some drinks. May be the meat plates are better as well

Eastwood branch. My meal was served with a salad of old lettuce with brown edges, soggy old tomato and onion. That's it. The exact same meal at Groenkloof was served with a fresh decent salad which included olives and feta. Totally unacceptable especially at the rip off prices! Also my cocktail was insipid and stingy. I called the manager who... More

Our guide took us here for lunch when we were visiting the area and he made a great choice. The food was delicious and they have a wide menu - anyone can find something they would want. There were so many things that sounded good it was difficult to choose. Our guide indicated that everything is good as he takes... More
