Restaurants and Venues at Pretoria NBG
There are 2 restaurants at the Pretoria National Botanical Garden
- Mokha Restaurant
- Milkplum Cafe Function & Conference Centre.
Both of these can be hired for functions.
The Mokha Restaurant is situated within the Pretoria National Botanical Garden. What makes it special is its deck that overlooks the wetland. From here one has a spectacular view of the Garden.
It can be accessed via the visitor parking area so garden entry fees are not necessary. It seats between 250 and 300 people.
Interesting to note is that the word 'Mokha' refers to the Tswana name for Acacia sieberiana var. woodii or paperbark thorn.
This is a lovely venue for:
- Breakfast, lunch and dinner
- Functions e.g. weddings, year-end functions, corporate functions, book launches or any other special event
- Catering services are available
The Restaurant is open 7 days a week from 08h00, but closure times vary. On Tuesdays, which is Senior Citizens' Day, a discount of 20% applies. This Restaurant is privately operated by an outside company.
