The staff friendly, food was very delicious. The prices are a bit higher than other restaurants, but it is worth it. I had duck. Very tasty, not dry. Can really recommend.

Thank you Hillside Tavern for the good service and food.

We took some friends there last night. Once again, fantastic all round. The lamb shank is absolutely divine and steaks to dream off! Excellent service, setting and value for money when you expect hi class food and service.

We've been dining on and off at Hillside Tavern since the late nineties and always had a good experience with the quality of food and service. I'm sure it is one of the oldest restaurants in Pretoria, but the reason for their longevity is evident. Our dining experience on 24 February 2018 was no different, excellent atmosphere, service and dining. The one house specialty that has always been my favorite is the trinchado, which is absolutely suburb and not to be found anywhere else.

I live in Cape Town but have eaten there 5 times now over the last 2 years. Every meal has been very tasty and I have not been able to fault them. The service is very good, friendly and helpful without invading your space. I look forward to eating there again.
