This Rustic Charmer is among the Top Pretoria Restaurants
It must be said that there are many fine places at which to eat around Johannesburg and in the neighbouring administrative capital, Pretoria. However, for a dining experience that is certain to prove memorable both for its quality and for the exceptionally beautiful surroundings, one of the finest restaurants in Gauteng is little more than a stone’s throw from Pretoria.
Close enough to enjoy the city’s stunning display of lights by night or a fine panoramic view of the skyline and its famed jacarandas during the daylight hours; it is, mercifully, still sufficiently distant from the metropolis to provide a welcome refuge from its unrelenting hustle and bustle. Located within the boundaries of the same national park that is host to the Voortrekker Monument this particular establishment forms an integral part of a much larger organisation known as the Monument Conference Centre.
In a setting that is rich with indigenous trees and flora, this is just one of the fine eateries to be found on the centre’s extensive premises. It has the capacity to meet the needs of up to 150 diners while still offering sufficient additional space for dancing and entertainment. Despite this, it manages to retain that all-important feeling of intimacy. A glance from its windows is likely to reveal that the only traffic in this neck of the woods moves on four legs rather than wheels and thus the numerous blesbok and zebra provide both a pleasant accompaniment to the meal and great topic for after-dinner conversation.
Among the many other restaurants that now operate in the general vicinity of Pretoria; the De Kroon Kamer is quite an exceptional establishment. This is not just a product of the undeniable rustic charm that is inherent in its uniquely beautiful location or the special ambience that it serves to impart but is, equally, a direct result of the quality of its excellent cuisine coupled with the pleasant and attentive service that we all seek but that, today, has become a great deal harder to find.
Considering both the size and the obvious elegance of this oasis of fine dining, it is perhaps not too surprising that it has become a popular venue for weddings and a wide variety of other celebrations that include anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas parties and Matric parties. On these occasions, a special menu can be arranged and served to meet the needs of the particular party.
Within the same conference and event centre there is a second, and equally attractive, dining opportunity. It is located in the beautiful garden area at the base of the monument after which it is also named. It has the capacity to cater for an additional 30 covers if required and means that a party of up to 180 should present no problems for the staff of this Pretoria restaurant. The facility also includes an attractive tea garden in which a delicious breakfast, a light meal or afternoon tea may be enjoyed between Monday and Friday. The tea garden could well provide the perfect alternative for the traveller who may be in search of something rather more inviting than is likely to be experienced at the average, roadside fast-food outlet.
As its name implies, one of the main purposes of this establishment is to act as a venue for companies or organisations that may wish to conduct a conference. Once again, the attractive and tranquil setting of the Monument Conference Centre provides it with the ideal atmosphere in which to hold this type of event. Relaxed surroundings, conference seating in a variety of configurations for up to 1500 delegates and all of the required modern technology at the disposal of the speakers all serve to make it the first choice for many top companies in the area.
From reviewing the sales figures or tying the knot to fine dining, these Pretoria restaurants offer everything.
