We always return to Tin Roof Cafe to celebrate our anniversary not only because we got married at the amazing little venue but because of the superb food and personalised service. Jenny and her team always makes us feel so welcome. Even though we know the menu very well we are blown away with each visit. Well done to the... More

On Wednesday my boyfriend and I decided to eat out and someone recommended this place for supper. The spot was so easy to find and we were warmly welcomed by the hostess. Our waiter Admire was really friendly and helpful and you could see how the waiters all worked as a team to help each other. The food was excellent.... More

There is no other restaurant in SA, that can do the Tin Roof Cafes's Lamb, and of ccourse the desert of Choclate Mousse, this must be one of the best kept secrets in Pretoria, and will be know as one of the best places in SA to visit. What are you waiting for - just go and book.........

We went to the Tin Roof Cafe in Pretoria. As my friend's request was outside, somewhere with trees. What a delightful venue. Gorgeous garden setting, peacocks strolling around, froggie choir and stars in the evening. But nevermind that. The food is awesome. Flavorful and not all the usual offerings. There is a additional "special's"menu to choose from as well. Jalapeño... More

We came for a friend's wedding at Gecko ridge. The food tastes great. We got a table inside as we have not booked it. I would suggest to book a table outside as the atmosphere is much nicer. The food ranges from 40 to 180 rands. We tried the special menu like Parma ham salad, sea bass, pork duo and... More

We were staying close by for a wedding. We asked the guesthouse owner for a referral and she made a booking for us at Tin Roof Cafe for dinner. We did not know what to expect but we were so pleasantly surprised. A manicured garden greeted us, beautiful water features and fragrant lavender bushes all added to the charm and... More

I was at Tin Roof Cafe on Saturday 28th January with my husband and friends. We all had amazing food - 3 full courses each - and every mouthful was delicious. We will definitely be going there again.

It is a drive out 'in the country' in the eastern side of Pretoria - you drive past plots and horses stables on a dirt road (good condition) and then into a gravel parking There are well kept lavender bushes and a cobblestone path leading you into the foyer which is large and spacious. Seating is available both inside or... More

Lovely country location, peaceful Provençal setting avoiding cliched Baroque. Owner run, attentive efficient management supporting well trained staff. Chef Wayne is simply the best; interesting combinations using fresh, accessible ingredients. Pricing is good - all round excellent value-for-money. Thank you, we'll be back...
