Been here many times. Service is always good. Food is average and generous in portion. Not great but still one of the better restaurants in Pavilion mall. This mall lacks quality restaurants.

Visiting the Pavilion we needed lunch. Both had the red stuffed chicken which was absolutely divine. Nice selection of meals with quite a few specials at decent prices. Good service with an attentive waitress who kept us updated on the progress of our milkshakes and food. Decent size portions too.

Cafe Gitano is always our 'go-to' place after a shopping spree at the mall. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and always provide a good service. We always enjoy the food and leave feeling satisfied. The menu caters for all and its a cool atmosphere. Will be back...again and again...😃

Seeing that I am a vegetarian, I had the Vegetarian Curry Vegetables. I was very impressed. I could not believe the quality and quantity I received for R45. It was a super delicious meal.

We recently had a girl day, and opted to have lunch at our favourite Cafe Gitano in the Pavilion. Never disappointing. The waitering staff is amazing. As my daughter goes there often, the waiters know exactly what she drinks, and what her favourite dishes are. I opted for the Chili Beef Quesadilla. To die for, and a must try. As... More
