I feel confident in saying that Carbon Bistro is currently my favourite spot for food and drinks in Pretoria. Their meat is always cooked to absolute perfection, management and staff are beyond helpful, welcoming and friendly, and their cocktails are out of this world. Besides boasting a fully-fledged gin-on-tap system (very unique for PTA), they also have a wide variety of craft beers that perfectly complement a well-planned, varied menu that will see you coming back for more. Try the ginger berry as a starter, have champagne with your mains and definitely try their brisket.

Very friendly staff & waiter whom suggested a few drinks and food and we were pleasantly surprised.
The gin is a must drink...
The food was okay - the lamb was a bit fatty to my liking and the pulled brisket was too smoky and killed the other flavours

Had the pleasure of dining at Carbon Bistro a few weeks back and really enjoyed the friendly service, the owner telling us about the specials and continual check-ups if all was still satisfactory. At no time felt pressured to rush thru our meal like so many other restaurants are inclined to do. Will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

Been wanting to go to Carbon Bistro ever since a friend recommended we go there, so headed there on an early Sunday afternoon for lunch. They have a good selection of craft beer, first time I've come across black horse draught at a restaurant. We had jalapeño poppers to start, slightly different to most other places but very tasty. Also had the ribeye, no additional sauce required, the steak was delicious just on its own. My wife had one of the many gourmet burgers on offer, which she really enjoyed. We were looked after Q, who was very friendly and gave us great service. Will definitely be back there in the not too distant future.
