More and more people over the age of 60 have been getting vaccinated against COVID-19, making it safer for them to venture out again. Here are the Joburg restaurants with great discounts for pensioners.
This buffet-style Montecasino restaurant has put in a number of COVID-19 safety regulations, including health screening forms, hand sanitising and the enforcement of mask-wearing at all times in the buffet area as well as socially distanced tables. Covered single pre-portions are on display and staff handles the buffet service. While the standard price for adults is R230, pensioners can have their choice of meat cuts, pastas, curries, casseroles, vegetarian offerings, salads and desserts for R140 per person.
On Sundays, pensioners can dine for R50 less at the popular Indaba Hotel buffet-style restaurant, paying just R235 to enjoy a huge selection of African dishes at lunchtime. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, operating days may vary. Call 011 840 6600 to inquire.
Pensioners get to eat for R200 – R79 off the full price adults are charged for lunch or dinner at the buffet. At the bistro, enjoy wood-fired pizzas, gourmet burgers, sandwiches and, for this cold season, curries and bunny chows.
The ubiquitous Joburg chain of deli and bakery stores is making it even easier for pensioners to enjoy their favourite breakfast spread, freshly baked pasta, pastries and pizza or gourmet sandwiches. From Monday to Wednesday, pensioners can order online and get 10% off.
From Sundays to Thursdays, pensioners get a 15% discount on their dinner on presentation of their pensioner’s card at High Stakes, a fine-dining restaurant located at the Emerald Resort & Casino and mostly known for its melt-in-your-mouth steaks and scrumptious seafood.
One of Johannesburg’s most iconic steakhouses, Thunder Gun, which has been around since the sixties, is where one goes for top-quality, succulent steak. The prices are reasonable and the servings generous, but pensioners can still look forward to getting 25% off their lunch meals on Tuesday.
