“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

LM in the East was recommended to me by a friend and she sure was right about the good food and service. The location of the restaurant may not be what you would expect, but once inside you will be pleasantly surprised. They have a good menu with a big variety, price may not be the cheapest but it is value for money. Our waiter was more than willing to assist and very friendly. We will definitely be back soon.

“Not once, not twice, but always excellent!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

LM is the place in Pretoria where you always get good food and excellent service. Best kept secret in town... If you dont want to wait always book in advance...Chicken livers still on the house after all these years...for lovers, family and business.

“Great oysters, great service from Lukas, prawns overcooked.”
Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

Sunday lunch - oysters did not disappoint. Salmon sublime. King prawns overcooked and then he issue so well handled and dealt with by Lukas. Service was great. Complimentary shooters ensured we ended on a high!

“Sea food”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

During Dec 2012 we visited LM in the east, started a number of years ago by the son of the then owner of the LM in Church str. Pretoria. We enjoyed many a fantastic meal there till it was sold and the new owner just could not match the previous owner, a Portuguese gentleman in quality and service, and had to close.

LM in the east was also sold by the son and it seems the very same is happening to this restaurant. During our meal, we saw the "owner/manager" about six times comming out of and returning to the bar, but not once did he stop at our table to inquire weather everything was fine or not. The very same was found with the "Receptionist/manager" We had to call every time needed service even though only 5 tables were occupied. I was told the their chef is the same person that worked at LM Church street, and if it is so, then somebody most definitely changed the recipes.

A department of the oral health hospital, a section of University of Pretoria, had their year end function at LM in the East, and the majority of the party was dissatisfied with both food and service.

“Great local Restaurant”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

This place within walking distance from me and always packed out. Best to book. Great food and friendly service. A lot of good fish dishes but also some meat and pasta and pizza. Good wine selection too.
