It is the best restaurant that we have visited in Pretoria. It was our first time at Heat and what a pleasant surprise. Ambiance was great and had a nice romantic and elegant atmosphere which makes you feel special. Menu has a broad selection to choose from. Excellent food and fantastic wine selection. The service was great and well done... More

A great meal with excellent service, beautifully prepared dishes and a romantic atmosphere. When you visit, ask for a booth or indoor table, they're really special. The balcony seating doesn't have a good view.

OK, so here is the bottom line. A broad menu selection of very good starters, entrees and desserts. The beef entrees are particularly good. The service can range from good to slow. Food orders can be slow for large parties. Nice outdoor seating in nice weather. A nice evening for couples, families or larger groups.

I took the family along for an enjoyable Sunday lunch. Seems I was a little overoptimistic. I asked the waiter what they serve the meat on. I was told chips. After explaining for a few minutes, he told me that he understood that I wanted a warm plate, and not a HOT plate as it would overcook my medium rare... More
