The Colonial is an inviting restaurant that is known for its delicious food and the warm welcome that guests enjoy. It is situated in the little town of Magaliesburg, which is a peaceful getaway that is conveniently situated close to Johannesburg and Pretoria in Gauteng Province. The Colonial offers freshly made meals that range from quick snacks and light lunches to hearty delights that should be savoured with a bottle of wine and a group of friends.
The Colonial has a comprehensive menu, and all of the meals are freshly prepared. The breakfasts are served until 12h00, leaving diners with plenty of time to enjoy them. The breakfast menu includes the likes of a veggie breakfast, smoked salmon omelette, breakfast pizza, breakfast pancake, or the more traditional bacon-and-egg varieties.
The lunch and dinner menu (available from 12h00 to 21h30) presents some really tempting options. Cheese soufflé is grilled in the oven and served with a cranberry and lemon marmalade, while rich halloumi is served with a sweet-and-sour dip. The French onion soup, tempura prawns, salmon paté, crumbed mushrooms or a simple prawn cocktail are all fantastic for peckish visitors that appreciate fine flavours. The Thai fish curry is the signature dish and has earned its excellent reputation.
There are tables outside for the balmy days, when mouth-watering meals can be enjoyed with the fresh air and sunshine of a South African summer’s day. There is also an indoor dining area, complete with fireplaces to ensure that patrons are comfortable and cosy even on the chilliest of winter nights. The staff members are warm and welcoming, attentive to the needs of their clients. This combination of excellent service, delicious food and a comfortable setting combine to create a very special restaurant.
