A true Inner City haven, The Village Idiot is a vintage Neighbourhood Bar & Restaurant that enthusiastically embraces South African braai culture. This is a place where we raise our glasses to foolish renegades, adventurous idiots and all the people who refuse to live by the rules of conformity. Relax, unwind and indulge in true laidback living. The large balcony plays host to a variety of braai events in the summertime and offers unrivalled views of the vibrant concrete jungle below. During the colder months, the charming colonial fireplace makes the whole space feel warm and cosy, perfect for those chilly winter nights. Our menu is a melting pot of traditional and modern South African cultures, smashed together with loads of flavour. The venue boasts multiple mounted TV Screens and a large Drop-down Projector for the screening of sports events. Live music and in-house DJs create a vibe that carries the party well into the early hours of the morning. For more information on daily deals, seasonal themes and special events, find us on Social Media and sign up for your own slice of idiot life. Bring a date, your mate or your mother…just don’t miss out!

    Our service was really good. Good value for money with the Friday’s special. Slow was not great but chips & burger very nice. And very helpful at last minute with our big table.

    Manager was quite mean to the group as a whole and the entire group felt quite inferior, even though we were paying customers.
