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

I was really looking forward to lunch at De Kloof with a group of friends I had not seen for some time. I had heard good things about the restaurant. Good food and fairly expensive but fine for a special occasion. The venue is at Waterkloof Golf Estate and there is a great view from the dining room. There were... More

I love this place! I've been coming here intermittently since 2013 (too many restaurants in my town) but for finer than fine dining with a menu that is changed seasonally without fail this is the place. It's intimate, it's classy and far enough from town so it isn't a cliche. The food is also amazing but please don't get attached... More

We were a bit concerned when we were the only patrons at a Sunday lunch visit to the restaurant (later on another group of people did arrive). The restaurant is located above a golf course in a secure estate, with views which are probably better in summer and when they are not busy renovating the balcony. The a la carte... More

It was our anniversary. Tasting menu with wine paring was excellent. It was such a lovely experience, definitely me and my wife's new favorite restaurant. Thank you for the amazing service and food!

My favourite outing is to a De Kloof wine pairing and this was no exception. We attended a venison and shiraz evening and it was out of this world! The wine contained some unknown gems and the food combined with it was spectacular. Never disappointed with this restaurant.

The restaurant atmosphere was peaceful, cosy and romantic. The service made us feel warm and welcome, and we learned a few interesting facts about wine and food. The food was incredible, and we enjoyed the different types of wine that complemented each dish. Overall there is nothing I would change about the restaurant. This is definitely me and my husband's... More

Food was good, no great. Service was actually disappointing. Value for money not on par...wine pairing not arriving with food. Disrupted waiters serving us. I think they broke half the kitchen crockery while we sat for dinner?

We expected so much but was disappointed. Sure you have beautiful views in the day but as we had dinner and it is winter we walked into a restaurant with very dated decor and no atmosphere, listening to the kitchen noise in background. Granted personnel was very friendly and helpful. We chose the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing.... More
