From the start the service of all the staff impressed me. With the heaters it was great sitting outside even on a chilly winters evening. Both the drinks and the food arrived very quickly and were very well prepared. The Rib-eye on the bone was delicious. Cannot say the same of the powerbomb peanut and banana smoothie though, that tasted... More

The service is exceptional and the food always consistently good. No request is to big an effort at Cafe41. Looking forward to many more meals at this great... More

On our fist trip to Africa and our first night in Pretoria, we ate at Cafe 41 and loved it so much that we came back the next evening. We would have come back a third night, but we drove to Kruger National Park!

Great, great place for a meal. Amazing build-your-own sandwiches. Great coffee. The best baked cheesecake in Pretoria (IMHO) for dessert rounds it off

I just love the foods in this restaurant. Their Moroccan lamb chops and Sole fish meals are to die for. It's also a relaxing environment to have a business meeting over lunch. Perfectly located, the place is frequented by most diplomats and senior government officials. You will never be disappointed.
