Priva is a fine dining restaurant and cigar lounge, with wonderful views of the lush Pretoria east. Priva offers four different types of menus for you to choose from. The Mediterranean cruise menu, which takes you on an epicurean tour of the Mediterranean offers starters from Greece and South Italy, mains from south France and Spain, with dessert inspired by the Turkish baklava. This seasonal and fresh menu celebrates spring with its lightness and flavour.
The regular menu is filled with interesting dishes like the smoked springbok carpaccio, served with grilled strawberries, toasted pine nuts and mango puree. For mains, try the braised lamb shoulder, rolled with red onion, thyme and garlic, served with a wild mushroom risotto and sautéed heirloom carrots. The gastronomique tasting menu is a five-course feast of flavours, which can be paired with sommelier chosen wines. This well curated tasting menu incorporates the different and interesting dishes from the main menu, giving you a true taste of Priva. The last menu on offer is the Priva lounge menu only served in the cigar lounge and the sky deck. This easy menu has favourites like Gourmet sliders, chargrilled peri peri chicken, sticky ribs and bowls of specially selected biltong. This bar menu is perfect for light snacks while relaxing at the cigar lounge or the sky deck.
Priva offers a large selection of wines, featuring mostly local and some international wines. This sommelier curated list offers the best local wines with rarities like the Louis Roederer Cristal 2009, being featured on the champagne list. Priva’s full bar offers spirits like craft gin and rum, single malt whiskies, cognac and cocktails.
The service at Priva is excellent but non intrusive. The maître-d is always on hand to ensure that all your needs are catered for. The waiters understand the menu and work well with the sommeliers to recommend wines to pair with your meals.
Priva is a stylish space with indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the beautiful views of the lush Pretoria east. The comfortable and luxurious dining area with linen covered tables gives the restaurant a warm, relaxed and classy ambience. The cigar lounge and live band, which performs from Wednesday to Saturday, also adds to the relaxed and comfortable vibe.
