Plates in restaurants are traditionally used for two reasons. At Cynthia’s it’s not to be thrown on the ground in celebration, after all this is Pretoria, not Greece. Instead they use plates to showcase their delectable food, in particular their venison of the day. This deliciously prepared-to-perfection delicacy can be enjoyed at Cynthia’s for R135. What’s more, this Groupon is for two non-breakable plates of ‘venison of the day’.
Cynthia’s is renowned as the most romantic restaurant in Pretoria in 2010 according to the Beeld newspaper, mostly because people can’t help but fall in love with the food on their plates. This is even more reason why this Groupon is ideal, especially for couples. The atmosphere has been described as classic and the theme is well presented with subtle touches of 50’s New York throughout. The atmosphere makes it easy for guys to impress as it’s a pull-a-chair-out-for-a-lady kind of place rather than a dare-her-to-finish-her-large-steak and burp the alphabet kind of joint.
The wine list is extensive and sure to impress. Those who missed the wine appreciation course will appreciate the help of the capable and widely knowledgeable staff. With the languid meals, you’ll be sure to utilise the wine list plenty during your romantic evening. Sip on the perfect wine while enjoying the venison of the day which could be anything from of ostrich and crocodile, to wild boar and springbok. If after you’ve had your wine and enjoyed some delicious flavours you feel the need to throw your plate in appreciation of the good meal then feel free. However, the cost of a new plate is not included in this Groupon.
Food fact: It’s a widely known fact that celery burns more kilojoules to digest than it contains. It is because of this reason that celery is banned in Jamaica as the government believes this kilojoule burning would conflict with their easy and relaxed way of life. As a result there is celery smuggling is huge in Jamaica, something that local authorities are working hard to cease.
