“Great place for breakfasts, teas and lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This is a relaxing suburban venue and serves very good breakfasts, snacks, cakes and lunch.

The inside with its open fireplace is cozy in winter and the garden is lovely and shady in summer. It is a very child friendly place if the weather allows sitting outdoors.

Recently we had soups for lunch and eggs benedict for breakfast. All dishes were excellent. The service is friendly and efficient.

This is a very popular venue especially over weekends.

“Fabulous urban luncheon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

It was such a beautiful day outside that I decided it's got to be an outdoor lunch, so I visited Paputzis. Brilliant setting in the beautiful gardens, when chickens and doves roaming around. Food was great. I had the Duck Al ' orange, which was excellent. Sat outside with a magazine and had a lazy lunch.

Super place for kids as there is a wonderful play area.

I had a wonderful experience here with my family. The service was fantastic and the food was wholesome and overall I would rate this as one of joburg's best kept secrets.

“Great family place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We often go to Paputzis for lunch - both during the week and on the weekends. It's a lovely restaurant, full of character and charming staff.
We have never had a bad meal here - the food is really good, the menu diverse and the portions large.
The service is always good, a bit slow when very busy but always helpful, friendly and well trained staff.
There's a small playground for the kids and, best of all, trees that are made for climbing! The tables are right next to the playground so you can keep an eye out easily. There are also chickens wandering around which is great entertainment for the kids.
Other than that there's not much else laid on for the kids and I'd like to see a fuller kids menu as well.
A lovely place to relax and enjoy a nice meal.
