our story

Johannesburg, a fast-paced city, its identity embedded in the constant hustle and bustle.


Offering a peaceful disruption, lies Plot 41, Al Fresco.

Originally a farmhouse, Al Fresco was converted to a family restaurant in 1998. Staying true to its origins, the restaurant maintains a country atmosphere with heart-warming cuisine, reminiscent of a familiar place.

Since conception, the restaurant’s soul remains the same: Rooted in quality and family.

Even though it has a rich history, it welcomes innovation with a fusion of local interpretations of some of our exotic favourite cuisines.

This spacious location offers a retreat away from the city schedule and allows one to savour the delectable food and conversation, while surrounded by good company. While many have called it home for years, Al Fresco remains a space yet to be discovered.
