We recently hosted a special occasion dinner party at Pacha's. Now, I am the first to admit that I am a selective and particular host, and therefore requested many an arrangement in preparation of the private dining room we requested. Not only was Maxine (whom I assume to be the manageress) helpful, able and capable, but each of our arrangements... More

Lynette has served us on a few occasions. What an asset to the restaurant. We ate and drank more than what was intended (on advice from Lynette). Food fantastic and service and ambience unsurpassed.

The food at Pacha's is always great and the ambiance and atmosphere makes for a wonderful evening out. Pacha's has been one of our favourite restaurants for more than 20 years - they never disappoint.

This restaurant probably has the best food in Pretoria. Excellent atmosphere and in general just a good place to go to. However, I'd like to offer some advice. Train your waiters to find the balance between being good and being annoying. I was there on a business dinner and being interrupted every 5 minutes does become a nuisance. It's better... More

We loved our evening at Pacha's. A blast from the past , with Avo Ritz on the starter menu, and all the much loved dishes from the '80's. The steaks were delicious, even without the sauce. Lovely crispy chips. The duck with a fruit and Lychee sauce was really good. The service was very good and friendly. Chefs specials I... More

First visit to Pacha's - but not our last! We were seated in the private area (due to big group of people attending). The service was top class! Very impressed with the level of service from reception to waiters to management. Orders was taken after all special dishes were explained & recommendations made. A feast was dished up! Everything was... More

We went there for a couple of birthdays in our family and we where treated as family had our own private dining area. Once you here what they're cooking your mouth will water. Lovely and exquisite food.

Great tasting food and friendly staff. Ideal venue for celebrating birthdays and anniversaries, not for children.
