The Blue Crane's food is part of why I frequent the comfortable restaurant almost every time I come to Pretoria, but the refreshing atmosphere, relaxing, scenic view, and open atmosphere is the main reason. At The Blue Crane, you have the option of either sitting inside a bustling indoor-restaurant area, or our on a wooden-panelled, open and spacious deck. The building is fairly old, but is therefore part of what establishes the comforting atmosphere. The view is of a dam dotted with a variety of representative birds (blue cranes included!), and is very relaxing and sets a nice feel, an the food was nothing extraordinary, but was fine - with rather adequate (but slightly too high) prices. It is part of a nature reserve that I enjoy coming to, and as a previous review stated, is a 'sanctuary in the city.' An ideal escape from the busy Pretoria.
