“Still new but worth the try”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2013

I agree with Tradewind Explorer's review. I would like to add though that I had one stunning prawn curry that made the visit worth the while. Service was acceptable. Decor is forgiven for the moment. Take a few friends and a few bottles of wine and fun could still be had. Pep up the interior, get a few compitent and assertive waiters and word of mouth could make this a winner.

“Lacks atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

This restaurant is still fairy new, so may improve with time. The food was fair. Not licenced yet, so you can take your own alcohol. The decor is a little stark, and the restaurant lacks atmosphere. E.G. A portion of the outdoor 'stoep' is used as a storage place for tables and chairs which really detracts from the atmosphere. Also, noisy kids were allowed to run around the dining room on the evening that we were there. I must say that we expected better - there are far better quality and value seafood restaurants in Pretoria East. Still - I would try the restaurant again in a few months as I generally enjoy Adega restaurants.
