Can recommend the New York Strip and the Flap Jacks with butterscotch sauce.

Background music is actually in the background

“Never fails”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Catz Pyjamas will never fail you. The food is good, the ambiance great, the place is accessible and the live music they have from time to time just completes the whole experience. It's amazing that this place has survived Joburg's shifts and changes. Legend

“YOU CAN RELY ON THIS ONE”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is truly an institution in Melville. I first visited in 1998 and 15 years later it's still my go to place when I'm hungry in the early hours of the morning. It helps that it's within walking distance of my home. The food is good and I've never had a reason to complain about it.

“Best value for money restaurant in J'burg”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

Catz Pyjamas in Melville Johannesburg is honestly 1 of those restaurants you have to try when visiting Johannesburg. The food is great (especially the pizza's) and not expensive.
The service is quick and friendly.

The restaurant has the option to sit outside (second floor) or inside.

I lived and worked in Johannesburg for about 3 years and spend many pleasant evenings in this restaurant.

“Great value, free wifi and always open.”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 via mobile

Catz is a Melville icon, which comes alive after hours, but is never dead. We have business meetings there bi-weekly and have enjoyed great pancakes and enormous wraps, for less than expected. Now a regular meeting haunt.
