This one isn’t a restaurant, but there’s a good reason it’s made the list: this could be the spot to find the best paella in the country.
The owners, Paolo and Annalize Bazaruto have over the years earned themselves a reputation as the most steadfast and reliable fishmongers in Pretoria. 
Their shop in Groenkloof stocks a range of frozen fish and also offers a great service for filleting and cleaning fresh fish on demand.

They often have fish in from Mozambique and if you’re on their notification list, you’ll always know what’s at the height of freshness. 

Last year Paolo made over 70 paellas in town. 

They need around 24 to 48 hours notification and have pans large enough to serve 120 people. The standard paella consists of chorizo imported from Portugal, dorado or kingklip, mussels, Mozambique prawns, clams, calamari tubes, rings and tentacles.
