“Great for summer dinner and drinks”
Review of Rademeyers

Ranked #499 of 687 Restaurants in Pretoria

Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Nestled in the foothills of Moreleta Kloof, lies one of Pretoria's most exquisite gems, Rademeyers Restaurant, Chapel and Voerkraal Venue. Originally a milk farm, now small game like zebra, springbuck, impala, blesbuck, ostrich, guinea fowl and indigenous bird species roam freely within this protected green area. The restaurant has been restored with understated and elegant furnishings with wickers chairs and tables in the outside area. Elegant glassware, linen napkins and polished cutlery complete its sophisticated setting. Catering to an upmarket, yet relaxed clientele, Rademeyers challenges the culinary senses with traditional South African food with a twist. When visiting Rademeyers, one quickly forgets that one is in the heart of the Capital.

“Great for summer dinner and drinks”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

The restaurant is on an old dairy farm which is now part of a reserve. The game walk passed your table while you are eating and the views are great. You don't feel as if you are in a suburb at all.

“Terrible service and managment! ”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

We booked for a Sunday lunch, upon arrival we had to wait for drinks long. The waiter was clearly not trained professionally towards waitering guests. Once thefood arrive it was very avevarage, it was slighty cold, the meat tasted flavourless and the vdgetables where boiled tasteless. Upon complaing about the lack of service and quality of our food the owner lady appeared. Who waz more resentfull in us complainig and in us poi ting out the lack of good service and standard of food and therefore reacted quite rudely towards us. We will certainly not be going back there again and as we are in the food and leisure indusrty, we will be sure to tell everyone to give this place a miss.

“Lost our booking for a 90th birthday and were rude about it”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Yesterday, was my grandmother's 90th birthday dinner. I flew up from Cape Town for the event, my parents drove up from George and my aunt made a booking for the dinner a couple of months in advance.

Unfortunately, Rademeyers lost our booking and will unwilling to help us any any way. So we had to find another restaurant that could accommodate our group of 10 at very short notice.

That in itself would have been very disappointing but OK. But the rude and unapologetic attitude we got from Rademeyers was very surprising. I would have expected that they would have been at least a tiny bit embarassed for messing up on such an important occasion

“Most pathetic service ever”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

We booked for a group of 15 people for breakfast on 21March. We waited 30 min for our coffee and 2 hours for the breakfast. When the breakfast arrived the wors was burned and it was a very small portion for R75. When we bring it under the attention of the manager she said you will pay for this!! Rademeyers will not see me again. Everytime I came there the service is pathetic. And they only open 10h00 and then advertize a breakfast?!?

“Family lunch”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Family restaurant situated in the Morelettakloof nature reserve, very pleasant outdoor setting surrounded by nature. Good ambience, good meals.

Negatives: service is slow, in our case it did not matter as we had time. Rump steak: the waiter warned us it would be tough, as it was freshly bought and not matured (one can buy matured steak!). Vegetables: ran out not spinach (there is a supermarket up the road!). Cake of the day: the waiter told us there is none left, the waiters ate all the cake!
