Been there last night for the first time, as a friend invited to the place. I have to say I'm very positively impressed. I loved the dishes and the combination of ingredients - the best thing is that I could taste everything and enjoy it in a single bite. Beautiful. Also loved the selection of beers.

We had such high hopes for the restaurant, having printed out the menu and planned well in advance for our baby sister's 16th birthday. We had the tasting menu and left disappointed. We continuously had to send back our food when elements on the dishes were missing - one of which was the main protein on a pork belly dish!... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant via restaurant week promotion. This was our first time at this venue and we were quite surprised to find such an elegant restaurant hidden away as it is. The menu had limited choices for the promotional week and we ordered different options. The food was well prepared and the waiter very well informed on exactly... More

Our dinner started well, but as is becoming quite customary in Pretoria, these restaurants are charging exorbitant prices for average food. Wine prices are quite inflated, although from this you could have some consistency. Our group had a variety of orders from the "special" menu and I was especially disappointed with a very dry "medium done" fillet steak. Of the... More

The restaurant is very beautiful, both inside and in location. A fine dining restaurant that is not intimidating. I had an "Ocean Basket" starter which I didn't enjoy. More because of my palate though, as it was s beautiful dish. The "Bees" main was absolutely outstanding. The staff is very friendly. However, our waiter was not as knowledgeable of the... More

My wife and I were looking for a good Sunday lunch spot in Pretoria. It was not found here! Both our starters were mediocre ( the fois gras and the seafood), especially at the price. Both our mains (fillet and chicken) had to be sent back for a reheat immediately after being served. New plates were brought out much later...... More

What a fantastic restaurant... the chef is extremely talented and it was a great treat to meet her. The food is delicious and very unusual. You can look forward to a tasty amuse bouche as well as several remarkable palate cleansers. There are also 5- and 7-course tasting menus with or without wine paring. Definitely not a restaurant to miss!... More

Situated in a beautiful and tranquil area with lovely views and ample parking makes De Kloof just the right place for a beautiful Sunday Lunch -which we indeed had! Very interesting menu with combinations that truly compliments one another. Tasting menu available which looks very appealing -just check if available when one makes a booking. We opted for the a...

Been looking for a restaurant above standard ground level for far too long - eventually found De Kloof. Excellent for setting the romantic pace!
