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.

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.

We really enjoyed our evening here. The manager checked on us frequently and the wait staff was on the ball, so we felt like VIPs. The food was exceptional, seasoned to perfection and flavourful with luxurious plating. The kitchen staff outdid themselves. We will definitely be returning! The route going to the cafe is very scenic and peaceful too. I only wish the chairs weren’t plastic, I think it’s the final touch to transform the restaurants feel to a more fine dining experience.

Ugh, think old Italian aesthetics and a relaxed atmosphere. The service was amazing, food good and a great spot for date night. Location: It’s situated on a plot, there is a bit of gravel road before you get there. Will definitely be going back soon

It was pouring down with rain last night, so we stepped into Tin Roof Café …. The fireplace was crackling, there’s a beautiful cat sleeping in a basket at the door, and it’s all nice and toasty inside . We were greeted with a friendly smile at the door , and welcomed at our table… The menu has everything from pizzas to pasta and much more, the wine list boasts a lovely eclectic verity of wines. I order the salt & pepper calamari which I will definitely recommend. There’s ample parking, but note they’re closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. They’re open for limited hours on the other days, so best check their opening hours and book before you go, to avoid disappointment. Children under 12 aren’t allowed , but it’s a green venue for weddings or parties . I hope I get a chance to go again soon.

Amazing fast service and delicious food. It was our first visit to Tin Roof Cafe last night. We had the beetroot and salmon as well as the springbok duo for a starter. For mains we had the beef fillet primavera and tagliatelle scampi. For dessert we shared a chocolate fudge cake with ice cream. Every meal was plated beautifully and the flavours for each meal was devine. Definitely a new favorite for us!!!

What a dream!!! We literally cannot find one fault with this restaurant. From the get go the service was great. We had the best waiter that have served me in my life. It was very difficult to choose what to eat as the restaurant offers a great variety, all of which sounds spectacular. Each dish has their own unique twist which contributes to the unique nature of the restaurant. They offer anything from gnocchi (a favourite) to pork belly, to fillet, to pizza, to the most amazing home made tin roof ice cream (no not the one from Woolworths). The food was fantastic. The flavors burst in my mouth and I could just feel them all float together to create one impeccable taste. The chef even personally came to check up on us. Overall I can officially rate this restaurant as the best I've ever been.

We had the chef's table experience, and Chef Pellie outdid himself with the food! The wine pairing was daring and exquisite. I would definitely recommend this unique opportunity to have a gourmet meal in a romantic setting.

The restaurant is one of the best I have been to in many years. Not only is the food, menu and wine of excellent quality and taste, it doesn't break the bank. Definitely recommend trying it atleast once. Just make sure to phone ahead to avoid dissapointment.

Was the best experience in a long time. The atmosphere, presentation of food and preparation was exactly and more than I expected. All of my 14 guests had a great time. Thank you to the best chef in town,Pellie and his team for making this a special one for my wife’s birthday. We will always keep this in our memories.

Beautiful venue situated on a farm near silver lakes. Great food and service. Booking is essential on a Sunday for lunch but the owner is very nice and accommodating and will try and squeeze you in 😉. You can see the chef has a passion for food!
