We used to come often, having a child it is paradise for them here, however, something has changed just recently, the food quality seems down adn feels mass produced, the staff dont seem to be as awesome as they used to be, this is sad.... Overall it was ok, its just not what it used to be.

Quite an interresting place. Specializing in mediteranean and italian this gem is sitting in a shopping centre on the edge of Pretoria bear Silver Lakes. Ample playing ground for the kids while mom and dad have a good steak. A much better alternative to the Spur just because of their quality of food. Reasonably priced and fair value for money.

Fun, food and family This is what you get. I visited that im Fourways on a weekend and had to wait minutes to get a seat. The trick, book a seat ahead. You will like the service and please try out their variety of salads if you perhaps love salads.

We went to Pappachinos this weekend (the restaurant changed their name now) and everything was just perfect! The atmosphere, the food and the service! Very pleased with the place and wil definitely visit it again!

This venue has been geared up to be a wonderful family venue. There are various play areas for the kids, which allows the parents to dine in peace while the kids are occupied. There is even a little pizzeria for kids which I think is a marvel idea. The quality of food has declined. Drinks are a bit pricey. If... More

Great food with friendly waiters but best of all is the kiddies play area with the child minders, they get to know the kids names. We were very happy with this service.

Service very good, relaxed environment, secure parking and very little traffic problems. Good central location for people meeting between Pretoria and Johannesburg
