We visited De Kloof tonight and the starters was good and the mains average. Good location and service, but unfortunately my night was absolutely spoiled by the worst "cheese" platter I ever saw. Quite simple, if you don't have any cheese , apologize and offer something else. Don't try to trick customers with creamy obscure substances and chutney. No cheese,... More

We booked in advance especially to eat at at De Kloof restaurant; we didn't receive the table we asked for and we were met with much resistance when we asked to move. VIP prices are charged for less than VIP meals and the portion size and variety are mediocre at best. Good wine list and knowledgable somelier. Not likely to... More

We enjoy restaurant week and De Kloof Restaurant was one of the best. The service stood out as we were served by many people. Everyone was knowledgeable about the food and wine we were having, even though we didn't have one fixed waiter. It's nice to see that all the staff enjoy their jobs and work as a team, nothing...

Set in the Waterkloof golf estate, De Kloof is little known gem with al brilliant view of Waterkloof's greens and the south east of Pretoria. We enjoyed the late after glow and a sundowner on the upper, erm deck? I had a tasty springbok loin dish with yummy "accessory dishes" and a non - alcoholic cocktail, the Cinderella, which was...

We were expecting fine dining but were pleasantly surprised to find a relaxed atmosphere. The food was very nice and the paired wines were lovely.

We were a big group of about 20 people. We made a booking in advance and had a set menu from the chef. The food was really great! The staff friendly and the view was beautiful. When you go there without a booking, you can order from their general menu which is also nice. They have big burgers that I... More

The restaurant has a lovely cozy atmosphere and the wine selection is excellent. If you would like to 'educate' your palate this is the restaurant to go to. Dishes like beef cheeks are served in a way that is presentable and delicious. Our waiter was excellent and my husband and I had a lovely evening.

The restaurant is spacious and emphasis is placed on the food presented. The food was tasty and meats were all succulent. I had the bokkie/veal which was so tender and the flavors accompanying it was define. The beef which my other family had and pork was also extremely good. Well lets not forget the deserts and the wine suggested all... More

We arrived here on a cold winter afternoon during the week. Very welcoming staff and a warm fire created a relaxing vibe. We decided to try the 5 course tasting menu from "Grindewald" and Smokey Joe" to "The Caribbean". Although not everything was to my taste overall the food was very nice, with the "Pig in Japan" as a highlight.... More
