Superb fine dining

Very good food and fantastic wine pairing from the menu. We had a wonderful time celebrating a 40th birthday with good friends.

This establishment continues to renew my faith that there are some excellent restaurants outside of the typical mall lot north of the Jukskei River (you really have to look...). The extensive and good wines available by the glass adds to gastronomic delight, as I have always enjoyed the French take on traditional fare, and the plating is well done and... More

Well when doing something fun and learning something while doing it then I'm impressed. We did the pairing menu and O MY TASTEBUDS!! It was amazing. I got to know wines I never heard of and loved them, phoned the farm in Cape Town and ordered a few boxes. I am not an expert, but love to eat... LOL! The... More

Overlooking the golf course, a lovely restaurant which is very child friendly. Great choice of menu for both food and wine, and the service is first-class. Well worth a visit.

I took my wife for a special evening. Granted the prices are quite high however the waiter gave us the idea of ordering one 5 course meal and then just add another main. This way we both experience 6 of their dishes and we each have our own main meal. The food was absolutely mouth watering and the view at... More

The 5 course tasting menu at De Kloof is truly a treat and I loved my evening there. The staff are very professional and helpful. Worth every Rand.

I had a company function for 38 guests at De Kloof Restaurant. I was very pleasantly surprised to arrive to start with my setup to find that setup of both upstairs and downstairs was already almost done. Marisa, Richard, Charl and all the staff at De Kloof were professional and helpful throughout the night. The food was as spectacular as... More

We returned for the third time to experience the 7-course tasting menu. The experience was less than stellar as they appear to have lost their sommelier? The tasting menu was more of "here is your Shiraz" and not much else. Very poor pairings indeed!... and for R750 a head, not good at all. The food was also not as good... More

As a family it is not often that we get the change to have all of us together in the same place at the same time and to celebrate we were looking for a nice restaurant, De Kloof seemed to fit the bill. The booking was for 7 mid-week and it was lovely, with music playing in the background the... More

Upon arrival the sun was setting and the view from the restaurant was extraordinary, with the sun moving behind the hills and the golden glow reflecting off the golf course. The service was top class and they were on top of everything from the get go. We ordered the 5 course tasting menu paired with drinks and truly was an... More
