“Fantastic Tapas Restaurant”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We dined here our first night in South Africa. We sat out on the back patio near a terrific koi pond. The atmosphere was beautiful and very serene, and the food was outstanding. The owners were very gracious. They introduced themselves and checked on us throughout the meal.

“Beautiful location, excellent food”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

This was by far one of the best places we've been so far, to relax, enjoy, and eat delicious food. And the staff is really friendly! I will definitely consider this place for one of our family reunions in the future!

“Best recommendation we've ever had from a friend”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

It seems like in this special spot in Pretoria perfect is possible! Our friend referred us and we couldn't be more grateful. Especially the homey, warm reception makes you feel special. Some restaurants that serve excellent food don't care too much about service cause 'our customers will cue up anyways, cause they want our food'. Well at Lucit (Laughing Chefs) you get both: great food and excellent service. And affordable too! I'd recommend it to anyone who's visiting South Africa. Treat yourself, experience this gem that was moulded out of a mother-daughter entrepreneurship to thrive and excel. They're especially good at customised events (from the friend who referred us). They have many open events as well such as live music. Finally, AMAZING tapas, I'll be back!
