Entertainment in Pretoria
The Bistango Restaurant
Centrally located adjacent to the elegant Court Classique hotel in Arcadia, Bistango has a distinct cosmopolitan feel due to the mix of parliamentarians, well traveled businessmen and overseas tourists who can be seen dining here on any day of the week. Felicity Lurie runs a tight ship in the kitchen to ensure that Bistango retains its high standards of service and food presentation for which it has become well known. The restaurant is versatile in its appeal and caters for diners throughout the day with early morning breakfast, light meals, and full a la carte dinner in the evenings.
The décor is most appealing with an eye-catching blue and yellow colour scheme, and large windows ensure that diners enjoy a very pleasant outlook over the well manicured hotel garden. There are two sections to the restaurant, the front area has a café style décor and continental ambience and concentrates mainly on breakfast and light lunches. The larger main area has a feature fireplace with mosaic detail, an attractive bar, and well appointed tables with yellow cloths and blue overlays which complete the more formal elegant look. Bistango also offers a delightful wine cellar cum function room situated downstairs to ensure complete privacy for those special occasions.
Bistango Restaurant's Menu
To start the day there is a choice of a substantial continental breakfast with a good selection of cheese and cold meat, or the hot English breakfast for those with a hearty appetite. Popular lunch time choices are definitely the Club sandwich with bacon and chicken breast, or the Steak Baguette. The main course menu has an interesting selection of starters and both the timbale of Smoked Salmon and the Escargots with creamy bacon and champagne sauce are highly recommended. Meat lovers will enthuse over the rack of Lamb or the grilled Sirloin flamed in cognac, but there is also plenty to choose from in the way of Seafood as well as a pasta dish for vegetarians. Felicity and her team have plenty of experience in catering for group bookings and can tailor a set menu to suit your requirements.
