Bosvelder

Die Bosvelder is closer to a holiday in the veld, than a mere eatery. This restaurant and pub offers a unique experience where the traditional South African lifestyle can be enjoyed. A restaurant with no pretences, Die Bosvelder is true to its name. Wooden furniture and a unique African feel await the diner. It is as South African as a restaurant can get, the people included. Die Bosvelder epitomises traditional South African-ness. It offers wonderful food, laid-back ambience and the friendliest service you're likely to find in Africa. The bushveld is a South African trademark and this original concept restaurant has kept the allure and feel of the veld. The interior and the food pays homage to one of the country's favourite destinations. Eat "kaiings", pofadder or skilpadjie, while enjoying the African sun on your back.

We enjoyed a few drinks and lunch at Bosvelder. I was very impressed. I ordered the snails starter and really enjoyed it. Waiters are friendly and efficient. Really the best food and service that I experienced in a long time. Highly recommended. Don't miss out on this one.

Fishmonger

Premium seafood restaurant specialising in fresh seafood and sushi. We also cater for meat lovers and vegetarians

Reviewed By Kim G - Centurion, South Africa

We love many things on this restaurants menu but the sushi, in particular, is great. They have a good few creative combinations and the sashimi is top class. It has an authentic feel to it and beware the wasabi is real wasabi.

Hemingways Restaurant & Wine Cellar

Hemingway's Restaurant and Wine Cellar is located at Leriba Hotel and Spa, the award-winning 4 and 5 Star Hotel in Centurion. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with understated minimalistic elegance and the ambiance reminds of a classic French cafe with splashes of contemporary Provencal style. The indigenous Gardens create a perfect backdrop for the sun-soaked Terrace. The menu revolves around the seasons and is fresh, tasteful and honest. The carefully selected wine collection represents the gems of South African wines to compliment the sumptuous culinary journey with excellent pairing​ suggestions. A feast to awaken your senses.

Reviewed By andrewdowner - Pretoria, South Africa

Pairing of La Motte wines with Hemingways food. Food (all 4 courses) were well prepared, very tasty and exquisitely plated. Cheese platter on arrival paired with a Sauvignon Blanc, Prawn starter - delicate & elegant with La Motte Chardonnay (everyone loves Chardonnay), Ostrich Fillet & mushroom risotto main - Millenium Red and the dessert was a Chocolate affair - Cab Sav. Service was a little slow but the company, background music and attention of the management made up for it. Will go back to experience a 'normal' dinner there.

Crawdaddy's

Best steaks, seafood, burgers, starters, sweets, anything. Very varied menu and everything is fantastic. Big portions, value for money.

Reviewed By AndrissaFerreira - Alberton, South Africa

I believe that Crawdaddy’s is always a great choice when in Centurion.
The food is really well prepared and delicious with a large variety catering to numerous tastes.
The service is friendly and knowledgeable while unobtrusive. I have to say that they were very busy and we had to call the server twice, however I will not fault him for that. He made sure to speedily supply what we needed with a hearty smile.
The spot is warm and noisy, but seems popular for large tables of celebrations. Be sure to book - we did not, but were quickly assisted. A great experience.

O'Galitos Centurion Mall

Reviewed By sfuhere - uk

Just had the most delicious meal here. A beautifully cooked veal with lemon pepper sauce and a jalapeño steak - just mouthwateringly good! Good service too and an extensive menu. Probably the best meal we’ve eaten during the 4 weeks we’ve been in South Africa. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Doppio Zero Irene (Southdowns)

Spilling with a special sense of community spirit with its bustling bakery entices with fresh bakes, made daily on the premises. The contemporary designed interior, double volumes, spilling out onto the surrounding patio is a great place for business meetings, light lunches and definitely great Doppio cooked food. Weekends bustle with fresh baked bread, breakfast gatherings and great service.

Reviewed By _pmbotha - Centurion, South Africa

For my 40th Birthday my wife had made special arrangements for the evening at Viva vita as we did many times before. They were very accommodating while the arrangements were made and even assisted us to make up a set menu. They even allowed me to pay corkage fee as I wanted to bring in some of my own wines. We really looked forward to the evening and my wife went back twice to confirm some of the arrangements.
The round table were set out for us and the table were made up as requested, we printed the set menu ourselves for the quests and placed it on the table before arrival.
The waiter was very friendly.....and the service average to poor.
Starters were as expected but when the main course were ordered everything started falling apart. The waiter could not remember who ordered what, and the quest only had two choices Chef special (pasta) or a rump steak. We were only nine guests it should not be rocket since. The pasta dish was dry it did not had enough sauce the guests who ordered the steak were happy with their choice. I thought the pasta would be better as Viva vita were an Italian restaurant.
Dessert were an absolute spectacular disaster.
It was pre arranged that we would have a choice between tiramisu or crème brulée. When desert were order we were notified by the waiter after about 10 minutes that they only have 1 tiramisu left 5 of my quests order the desert. One would think that the kitchen manager or manager will look at the bookings and at least make sure that enough is available for a set menu on a special occasion that were pre arranged. Quest were offered chocolate and ice cream sauce as an alternative or a chocolate volcano no menu's were presented from the restaurant for this.
Once again the waiter could not remember who order what and quest were pointing towards each other to assist the waiter. The crème brulée was horrible it was not lightly torched it was BURNT it actually melted the custard base, quests did not even finished the ice cream. I tried to selvedge the evening with a round of coffee and even that order confused the waiter 4 cups of coffee.
Not once has a manager in the 4 hours we were their approached us to find out if everything were in order.
I actually apologised to some of the quest my self.
This is not the Viva Vita we used to know it is clear that a lot of the service left when the previous owners sold restaurant. A lot of the atmosphere excellent quality foods and outstanding service we were used to left with the previous owners....Elvis has left the building people.

Zagora Grill Room

Reviewed By Jjaymoh - Pretoria

The Moroccan styled Deco is beautiful. But, I can revisit a badly decorated area with good food than a well decorated place with terrible food.
The buffet was terrible to say the least. The oxtail which was highly recommended was a flop. Fish was dry and not fresh. Oh my God, the basmati rice was so hard and had no character. I ordered a wine from the menu and they were out of stock. This is what broke camel's back.
The waiters staff was excellent and friendly. The kitchen staff seemed new or in training.

Reviewed By Chris B

Very little, if anything is this restaurant is of their own design. This ranges from their logo / signage (plagiarised from Rasoi), to Pizzas and toppings (copied, but never matched, from Enzo's). All in all a bad experience in a very cramped space.
