Description: This iconic bar and restaurant is just the place to cool your heels after a long work week. The wine list is impressive, and the venue is warm and understated. Twenty odd years ago,four people had a dream. The dream came true when Hillside Tavern opened it’s doors in October 1989. Since then this popular restaurant has been one of Pretoria’s favourite meeting places for local customers and international tourist alike. The dream did not stop there, and twice Hillside Tavern was awarded the “Golden T-Bone Award” for the best Grill House in South Africa. Our signature steak dishes have also won the “Grill House of the Year Competition” twice in South Africa.Hillside Tavern today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award.

A few minutes from the highway lies the best stake house North of the Boerewors curtain. Excellent service and a great menu together with good pricing makes this one of the best.

We have been going to Hillside Tavern fairly regularly for the last twenty years and have never been disappointed. The food is always good, by far the best steakhouse in Pretoria. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the service good. Meat, seafood and chicken all excellent. I can't wait for my next visit!
