Definitely more than just the normal steakhouse. The décor gives an atmosphere and sophistication to the whole dining experience. Great menu and impressive wine selection gave us options to try something new. And then of course the food itself. Attention is given to the presentation which is just the start of what is to come…undeniably delicious, flavourful meals. Every dish... More

To me, Cynthia's represents old style dining. This means that the restaurant has been offering great meals at just above great prices since the early 2000s. Big decor, big wine list, big heart. Great service en good food - much applaud. Two small things - It is unsuitably cold in winter and those WC's can do with a serious modernization.

This was one of the best known and enjoyed restaurant in Pretoria. It went through a low period. I have been there thrice in the recent months and they are definitely "coming back". The restaurant and it's interior is a little tired and all is unchanged for many years. And should probably score a 4/5 for that reason, but a... More

(1) The meal: A double birthday celebration on 8 August became a bite and wash down event... of eight dishes ordered, two were of acceptable standard. Calamari starters were dry, tough, tasteless and gritty - wine helped to wash these away. Shoulder of lamb overcooked, dry and devoid of personality - a request for gravy managed to help, but half...

This was one of our favourite restaurants in Pretoria but some years ago the service and food took a dip and we stayed away. My wife and I decided to have dinner there and was pleasantly surprised when we found the food back on standard, the service attentive without being too intrusive. The decor is still the same but suits... More

Been to Cynthia's on a number of occasions. Always been treated well, food good - a certain dish is only made here although other eateries have some of the same ingredients. Nice environment for dinner.

We were pleasantly impressed with the whole experience! From the parking, the reception, the restaurant, the table, the waiter, the maître d' and of course the food and wine. We had the kudu which was not listed on the menu, but recommended by the maître d', when we asked for advice on what to order. We paired the dish with... More
