This restaurant moved to 19 Hazelwood st Pretoria. New premises are stunning! Food even better! Larger premises, same staff and owner.

Operating a restaurant under Covid regulations and loadshedding can be trickey. Bonny and his team continue to do an outstanding job. Favourates like lamb shank, oxtail, filet steak and prawns are all outstanding. This restaurant must be one of the best restaurants to visit in...Pretoria. The many embassy staff you see at Lepis Dore can't be wrong. Prices are very reasonable and the service good and efficient. You won't be disappointed.More

Chef Roberto and his team have been serving outstanding dishes consistently for many years that we have been visiting this restaurant. Their sous vide prepared oxtail and lamb shank is the best I have ever had. The flavours of each dish just blend together to...create unforgetable dishes. I am not even mentioning the filet! Rob's freshly grilled salmon is simply…amazing - not always on the menu but worth ordering when available. Bonny, Blessing, Keith and the kitchen staff look after one well. This restaurant is worth visiting as can be seen from the regular diners that keep on comming back for more. Well worth a visit!More

This restaurant is one of Pretoria's hidden gems. Lepis Dore's signature dishes are the AMAZING oxtail, lamb shank, filet and salmon (not always available). Chef Roberto's new filet with whiskey was, I think, one of the best filet's I have ever had. Absolutely Michelin star...magic! The rest of our party had Rob's amazing oxtail and crispy prawns and ended it with his fabulous chocolate cake and Italian Grappa. Pure bliss. This restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch 7 days a week and well worth a journey. But remember, good food takes time to prepare, if you are in a hurry, rather stop at KFC.More

A few time in past 10 weeks and the Avocado Benedict is always perfect, bacon crispy and friendly service!

This wonderful restaurant serves consistently outstanding food. Rob and his team do a brilliant job - be it breakfast, brunch or lunch. For breakfast the Blackstone eggs are and explosion of tastes in your mouth and for lunch the fresh salmon (when available); filet, oxtail,...prawns and salads with home made dressing is a treat. My personal favorite? The sous vide 'fall off the bone' lamb shank and oxtail. Bonnie (head waiter), Blessing and Keith as well as Primrose (never trust a thin chef) in the kitchen and her girls do an outstanding job. You will not be disappointed.More
