The 5 course meal was brilliant

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... read 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

We visited the restaurant for my daughter's 16th birthday and we really wanted a different eating experience, something we could not do at home. We were not disappointed. The food is delicious, interesting and the presentation is amazing. The menu is not overwhelming but there is enough variety to suit anyone's taste. The ambiance is very relaxed and we did... More

This elegant venue is located on the premises of the Waterkloof Golf Estate in Pretoria and for me it's like a "Hole in One" whenever I have had the opportunity to sample the wonderful delights this fine dining venue offers. The setting, like their food offerings is, elegant and tasteful, the service is beyond reproach while the menu is always... More

We had a a wonderful dinner and thoroughly enjoyed a romantic evening. I think the decor could perhaps be updated, but that didn't take anything away from the meal!

As a 'long standing' patron of De Kloof, I was sold on this charming restaurant from my very first visit! Always innovative, never failing to surprise and impress with their culinary delights, every experience at De Kloof is perfection, from the ambiance to the staff, who are all very knowledgeable and friendly, to the cuisine to the wine list to...
