Tasty food and friendly waiters.
Imagine your childhood, the smell of freshly mown grass, your mom calling for lunch.Laden before your eyes are carrots. Fresh from the farm, with a light sweet scent, and mom's special Sunday recipe. That's how it feels to dine at La pentola.It's an adventure for your senses where each bite feels like heaven. More...
Good food, just like mamma made it

Utterly amazing meals that will delight everyone and entice you to come back again and again! Service was impeccable, making the whole evening beyond special!
Absolutely amazing vibe and superb quality food and service.
Had a meal here, it was absolutely divine. The waiters are also kind and helpful.
We have just had the best restaurant meal in our travels in South Africa at La Pentola in Pretoria. The chef is the best. Snails are die for ! The fillet was done to perfection and the crocodile starter superb. Have never had a better duck served before! Service was excellent and we shall be back. Highly recommended. More...
Excellent food and atmosphere

Since many moons ago, the cuisine never disappoints and you leave with a satisfied feeling!
Amazing food and great service
Love La Pentola.
We attended one of their gourmet dinners; great menu with food that had outdone our expectations. The wine pairing was also very complimentary to the dishes. Booking was easy and the service staff were friendly and professional. More...

Good atmosphere with excellent food and service!
What a great place for an amazing food and wine pairing. Top quality food at its best. Fantastic service all around from all the staff and to Chef Shane that creates the most amazing dishes...
Good food - went with a friend for an afternoon lunch twas their off peak time so there was no one there except us and the waiters. Food was quite late but worth the wait. More...
Awesome little spot with the most amazing cuisine. A great place for a romantic date or a get together with your friends. Like I said the food is great (must try their fillet) and the price is very reasonable for the quality and taste.

Johann Du toit
Amazing wine pairing evening
Great food and amazing menu. Music needs some serious attention as fine dining ro the beats of Lady Gagga on repeat, is not what one expects! ! The rest is 5 star but music gets a minus 5..... More...
Absolutely fantastic.We came for dinner around 19:00. The ambience was perfect. The music was subtle, and together the lighting and the candles on the tables, created a very comfortable atmosphere. The service provided by our waiter (Riley) was likewise top-notch.The Santorini chicken I had for main course was incredible. The (numerous) other entries on the menu were very enticing. My only regret was not saving space for dessert! More...
Fantastic dishes with unusual fusion such as chocolate and mushroom.Also recent renovations have improved the ambiance of the dining room
Food excellent. Peaceful and intmate atmosphere. Very friendly and professional staff
Best food in Pretoria
A wonderful experience. Service and food above expectation.
Food is great. Not suited for parents with babies. No changing or breastfeeding facilities.
Amazing food. More like a show for your taste buds than a restaurant
Natalie de Bruin
Delicious food and the most amazing setting, perfect for a romantic dinner!! They have a set menu, as well as Chef specialities of the day. Would definitely recommend the Honey Mustard Warthog... Absolutely devine!! Best 30th Birthday celebration ever!! More...
Great as always.
Great Food by the BEST CHEF with Great Friends
Great food and wine options
Great service and atmosphere - Definitely recommended for Date night.
Very good, great service
Without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Pretoria! They've recently revamped the interior, giving this iconic place an update. La Pentola is all about the food. Chef Shane is on point! The meat dishes are exceptional. I would strongly recommend having fillet. More...
Amazing delicious food with such a great atmosphere.
Chilled good place for refreshing
Very good food for sure
Eccellent service and the most delicious dishes.
Amazing food. Every month they have a food and drink paring special for very low prices e.g. 4 course meal with wine pari g for R295 per person.
Awesome food. Great atmosphere
Because I know it 2 much i love it
I honestly knew very little about this restaurant when I went and therefore set my expectations to be rather low. Attending a Chaine De Rottiseurs evening in 2018 I had the most exquisite food. The chef clearly understands how to prepare phenomenal food and the dining experience and facilities were impressive. Would certainly return. More...
Lovely interesting food.
Wonderful staff and amazing food
Best bread in town
Seriously good food, every time.
Good service and delicious food. Very good value for money.
My favourite restaurant! I got engaged here!!!
Isel van zyl
This is one of the best restaurants in Pretoria. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I will definitely be back again.
We had an absolutely amazing dinner at La Pentola. Val, our hostess, was perfect, the best service we have ever received. And the food was top notch . Really well prepared, but generous in size whilst maintaining impeccable presentation and preparation. We were blown away. More...
Great food, lovely ambience.
I love the new decor update. The food and service is always flawless.

Love this place. Quite, intemate and the food is gr8.
Very nice. However not for every day due to pricing. Not for quick stop
La Pentola is known for its fusion cooking with excellent wine pairing evening. The updated interior is fresh and welcoming, the food always of a high standard.
Enjoyed the wine pairing with good food.

Absolutely and surely cosy and delicious
Shef Shane and franschhoek wine gourmet dinner. Celebrated my daughter's birthday and the 5course dinner was mouth watering. The wine selection excellent. I'm not a lover of dry red wine #the_franschoek_cellar I loved the blanc. Blended beautifully with the first course.What a great moment to receive a gift for sharing photos of our night with #lapentolaComing back soonA hidden gem in the moot More...
Brilliant food and wine selection, friendly and efficient staff and good atmosphere.
This is good fine dining restaurant. The food is excellent, but a bit pricey. The decor is a bit down market. The staff are helpful. Nothing happens fast at this restaurant, so don't be in a hurry. The food is worth the wait. More...
Great atmosphere with excellent service and even better food
The food and service out of this world. Thank you we will be back
Nice cosy restaurant with amazing food.
The best crocodile meat dish
Fantastic Menu and Specials! Waiters are on top of their game in terms of service and obviously well practices in their public speaking skills. Do not underestimate the pleasurable Monkfish and the Angelic Snails! More...
Enjoyed good food and excellent service

Very special dining experience
Quick, friendely service, good food
Delicious food and organic wine pairing, and the chef was able to very creatively adapt the menu for my vegetarian needs. The interior of the restaurant has been changed, and it looks more spacious but still .cosy. High quality food, really delicious! One of Pretoria's finest, there is now also a branch in Hermanus for Capetonians to enjoy. More...
Absolutely stunning food, and amazing service
Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, amazing staff. This is honestly one of my all time favourite restaurants.
Martin van Tonder
Stunning, great tasting, quality food.Welcoming atmosphere made possible by the aesthetics and friendly staff....but compliments to the cook, our food was excellent.
The service was excellent and the food was great but it's a little pricey.
Cosy restaurant in the heart of Pretoria
Beautiful flavorful food. Great fusion cuisine.
The waiter knew the menu and the food was excellent. The evening flew by in this cosy eatery
Fantasties. Die kos was uit di boonste rakke.
Haaike Van der Merwe
Famous Chef, Fusion Foods, excellent service - If you really want to treat your girlfriend at an upmarket restaurant, then this is surely the place to go ;)
6 Star Experience!
Great food, fairly priced. Waiters not all that friendly but other staff very helpful and friendly. Food takes a bit of time but it is divine and worth the wait. Smoking section outside but it seems they don't really like it when you get up and go outside to vape/smoke. It was a nice experience. More...
Henning Le Grange

Claudia Von Steen
The food was out of this world and the service excellent!!!
Very quite and cossy atmosphere... The food is taste and well presented. I liked the artistic infusion to the restaurant.
Best wine tasting evenings I have ever been to!
Ruben von Steen
The best service I've ever received. The best food I've ever eaten. The best atmosphere I've enjoyed meal in and it's the best place for any special occasion. I celebrated my 21st birthday at La Pentola, Pretoria. The waiters and managers made each moment feel so special,they pulled out every stop, without any request from my family. As a birthday gift from La Pentola, our waitron brought out three bottles of liquor namely, skyy vodka, high quality nut liqueur and a 10 year brandy, he then told a tale about the three liquors and as he was doing this started to light the vodka on fire...heating the glass he said,and as he explained he's story he threw the burning vodka out on the floor, letting the flames burn out on the floor,he then poured a two shots, one brandy and one nut liqueur, both into the very warm glass, he continued with his tale, explaining what he did, he finished,gave me the glass of brandy an nut liqueur mixture and told me to gently sip on it. That was La Pentola's gift to me, it was awesome to see and here what the waitron did...absolutely great first time experience. I would definitely recommend this fantastic restaurant to anyone whom seeks a fine dining experience, having a good time, and general good vibes. Oh and they have a 'no waste' policy which means you get to take some of the food home that you didn't finish. More...
Dina De Meillon
Lovely evening, superb service and perfect food
Nice place, good fusion kitchen
Great atmosphere and good food. Especially the themed evenings
Albert de Jongh

One of rhe best formal dining in Pretoria.
The home of fusion cuisine in Pretoria a restaurant that boasts original fusion recipes with informed staff and an award winning wine list A fun place to visit remember to check out Chef Shane Sauvages recipe books
Lovely atmosphere. Excellent vergetarian options.
I have been to this restaurant for more than 10 years and they are still the best
Great food and a really peaceful atmosphere.
Ambience great and food excellent
This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to and I have been to a lot! The food is outstanding and the atmosphere romantic and peaceful.
The food is very good: the chef knows his stuff, but I think a 4 start rating for La Pentola is on the generous side specifically because the chef/owner seems to be too much of a control freak and may be stuck in a bygone style of cooking. I don't like my evening to be dictated, so when the waiter tells me that we have to order starters and mains at the same time because the chef insists on that, that's a warning flag. I like my evening to be more organic and flow with my mood.I see on their next set menu evening that the fillet will be cooked to the chef's preference, which may very well not be mine, so that disturbs me.Also, when I phoned during the day to see if I needed to make a booking for a Wednesday evening, I was told I absolutely had to. There were only 5 tables that evening...and I don't like being lied to or misled.So this is a slightly weird one: a vintage cooking style, a controlling chef with meek/nervous waiters, and when we went...a past at lunch service had been spilled on the floor and not properly cleaned up. More...
Service excellence ambience brilliant. Just love the more open look. Special thanks to Sandra for helping with our last minute booking.
Awesome taste sensations
Food is always nice and service is amazing. Friendly and professional staff
Wonderful experience. Professional service and excellent food. Had a great time
Very nice place to go as a family

Fine dining with exceptional cuisine
Chantel De Paiva
Excellent place. The food is world class. The setting is very elegant and even romantic. Excellent service. The waiter was very attentive in the sence that he kept a close eye on the table to make sure it is neat and not cluttered with finished dishes or glasses, asking if we need anything or if everything is okay. He knew the specialty menue for the evening by heart, explaining each dish to the last detail. Was very impressive. More...
Pieter van der westhuizen
