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.

“Be prepared for a long wait. ..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

I loved the food at 41. Decent portions and tasty.

However one the times that I was there parking was a nightmare and the wait was a bit on the long side.

Overall ...a great place with a relaxed atmosphere.

“Place I keep returning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Cafe 41 is a place I keep returning to, time and time again. Excellent in vibe, menu selection and quality. Really good mediterranean food. Their vegetarian chickpea and sweet potato stew and also their lasagna is top class. Their cakes are to DIE for. Tea is served in antique silver teapots. The best are Groenkloof and Eastwood Village.

“Good food - but looong wait.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Was in Pretoria last week and was working close to this venue, so got to eat there a few times. Food was generally good and wel proportioned. Wait was longer than I am used to from the US. But friendly enough when the staff did come over. Definitely convenient and good quality foods.
