Loved it, amazing food and service xxx
What a lovely culinary experience! The atmosphere of this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon is the perfect way to end off, or start, the week.
We ordered from the specials menu and started our lunch off with the Fig and Goat's Cheese Tart. Certainly a new favourite that tantalises the taste buds.
Next we had the Rigatoni Carbonara and New Kid Pizza. Very filling and we wondered whether we would want to dessert, but who can say no to Chocolate Fudge Pudding, complete with peanut butter ice cream?
A lovely and inviting atmosphere where you can escape the buzz of the city. A must!
This delightful spot is in Mooiplaats, Pretoria, so it does feel like a bit of an escape from city life. Complete with a bit of dirt road to travel on. Us city dwellers need that now and again!
The warm and welcoming ambience immediately transported us back to our time spent in the Cape Winelands a week or so ago. Bliss!
We arrived just as the doors opened, and I realized soon afterwards that we were probably very lucky to get a table without a reservation, so that is something to remember next time.
The wine list is concise but really impressive and we immediately recognized some personal favourites.
You can expect country-style comfort food that is absolutely delicious and prepared and presented beautifully.
I opted for the wild mushroom risotto and believe me, it was divine! Served with asparagus and chickpea fritters, this was such a tasty and hearty dish. It was a good-sized portion (in my words = large) and I finished all of it! Every last bite.
My hubby had the Italia pizza (with added anchovies) and it truly was a feast for the eyes. I didn't taste it, but he thoroughly enjoyed it. Maybe next time!
I only realized recently that the legendary Chef Pellie Grobler is at the helm of this restaurant. The quality of the meals speaks volumes! Continuing his mission to change Pretoria one meal at a time. Great job!
We will definitely be back - I saw quite a few dishes on the menu that I will be dreaming about until then! Oh yes, and that wild mushroom risotto.
Have visited many times. Great food. Great wine. Good and friendly service. Relaxing outdoor setting. Ambience is awesome. Always a winner, for us!
Excellent food. Excellent service. Friendly waiters. Beautiful place. Wonderful ambiance! Will definitely go back for more! The gardens are beautiful and well looked after.
We went there today for our anniversary and at first i thought, a café mmm it's not going to be so wow and fancy (and i like fancy). But to my surprise this place was warm, inviting and not a café at all. The food was outstanding. The waiter forgot about us a few times, but we had good wine and good food and what more do you need.
Let's say that i was so into the food i forgot to take pictures haha. We had the calamari stuffed with prawn for starter, duck for main.
We had a great experience at Tin Roof Cafe. It’s quite a drive as the place is rather remote, but it is definitely worth it! Fantastic setting and great service. We really enjoyed the food (Seabass special and Filet Primavera). As appetizer a rosemary focaccia with tapenade.
The chef also came to check on our experience. Really wonderful, we’ll be back!
Couldn’t have chosen a better place for Sunday Lunch in this beautiful and quite restaurant. And luck would have it I was meant to eat here because we got the last available table, so my advice would be to book in advance so that you are on the safer side. Service was very friendly and I must say I enjoyed their pizza thoroughly, sadly I wasn’t particularly hungry so couldn’t explore the food much but I’ll definitely come back here, doesn’t even feel like you are in Pretoria anymore. A definite must try.
Great food, great service, great setting! Tin Roof makes you feel like your far away from home in the middle of the countryside, its really has a proper country atmosphere. The food is always fresh and delicious and I will definitely return again soon.The only drawback is the dirt road to get there, however, if you want a country atmosphere, I guess that's part of the experience.
Whether you are in the mood for a "day-in-the-country" under the trees or a cozy, romantic lunch/dinner inside, Tin Roof Cafe is the place to go. Just a beautiful place with a great ambiance. TRC is perfect for any occasion. The staff was friendly and efficient. We ordered pasta and pizza which was really delicious and flavorsome. I would recommend Tin Roof Cafe.
The only bad thing I have to say about this place is that there are dirt roads going to the restaurant.
The food was absolutely amazing , definitely one of the best pizzas I've had. The jalapeño poppers was also really good and was actually a little spicy.
The restaurant is very intimate and is perfect for a date night or a small family supper.
The scenery is really pretty , fairy lights, water features , along with a really pretty garden.
