The best of Pretoria’s outdoor restaurants

Pretoria, South Africa’s favourite Outdoor Dining spot


Pretoria as one of South Africa’s three capitals has not only an administrative city but a leisure spot as well.

Pretoria lies on the foothills of Magaliesberg Mountain to the east and it is against this backdrop that it remains a top tourist destination in Gauteng Province. The undulating landscape of the Apies River where the city stretches on both sides is scenic, drawing in a lot of visitors.

Premised on this, there are several outdoor restaurants in Pretoria giving locals and visitors a South African treat in food and the scenic nature of Gauteng during spring when the province street turns purple and green.
