We had a disastrous experience at this restaurant, from stale flowers at the entry to clueless waiters. The food was average at best, but the service is the main concern. No problem in paying a premium, but then you expect something in return. Must be our worst dining experience in a number of years.

Lovely ambience, a feast of different tastes and an absolute joy for your palet! This is a hidden gem if you look for something a little different without breaking the bank!This restaurant can compete with any of the more famous Franschhoek restaurants who serves food in the same style!

Ambience and view fantastic, but pity the pretentious nature of the food disappointed. Not a fine dining experience.

We had a birthday party here and the service was absolutely shocking and staff were very abrupt. Not what was expected from this restaurant. Food quality was excellent, compliments to the Chef. Unfortunately my memories will be towards the caliber of the staff and their attitudes.

We had such an amazing time at De Kloof Restaurant. What made our anniversary dinner so special? The answer: exquisite food, an exceptional eye for detail and a warm ambiance set the perfect tone to a perfect evening. One can really see and taste the creative talent behind Executive Chef Monche Muller's masterpieces! ~ Jaco & Wynand

Althought not every body's cup of tea, the food is presented Masterchef style, and the tase is also superb. Not a disappointing taste on the dish. Only disappointment was that they were out of stock of a specific wine, but suggested an alternative given at the same price. Wasbabgoodbalternative.
