Great place to eat with a fantastic view. Food is very nice but limited choice. Normally they sell good wines but now a days you have to bring your own!

We visited this amazing wine estate as part of a wedding group.. There was more than enough waiters on duty, just a pity they did not want to serve. We had to get up 5 times to get our wineglasses topped at the bar. I never though it was possible to mess up a fillet steak, but unfortunately the meal... More

The attention to detail is overwelming. Lots of pretty patterns on the plate, numerous flower heads, swirls of purées and sauces. Sadly, the fennel pannacotta did not work. The flavour was too delicate to cope with the bitter grapefruit foam, perhaps pea or asparagus would have been better? The one scallop and one quail egg which fortunately was encased in... More

Our friends from Cape Town sought this out on our recent visit. It was their first try and, of course, ours too What a find! The suspended glass "box" with beautiful outdoor deck has views to die for, and that's before we get to the restaurant itself 6 courses (3 complimentary treats from the chef) for R365 is fantastic value,...

This restaurant has one of the most beautiful views in Cape Town. The food was sensational and the service very good! The food is art on a plate, all the dishes at our table looked beautiful, I almost did not want to eat it. I really cannot wait to go back!!!

Visited Waterkloof for a business dinner. Food was excellent, good variety and well prepared. One of the best views in Helderberg. The restaurant is modern and classy. Food are fairy priced taking into consideration you are at a 5 star establishment. If you want to impress this is the place to go.

If you've ever watched MasterChef Australia, you'll feel as if George and Gary themselves were in the kitchen whipping up the gastronomy placed in front of you. So it's safe to say the food was, intriguing, and delicious. I believe it was around R300 a head for a 6 course meal, excluding wine, which I thought was well worth it... More

If you looking for a very special treat, go to Waterkloof, quite expensive but they really look after you well. Lots of little free tasters with our meal, so was quite special. I would only go there for a special occasion and view is spectacular. Would be nice in winter with the huge fireplace and some wine.

On Sunday morning the wind went down and an macnificant day lied ahead. I contacted several restaurants but they were all fully booked. The only place where I could find was Waterkloof 4 km from my home. What a surprise with this restaurant situated at top of the hill with a 360 degrees view of False Bay and the mountain... More
