I had brunch with my sister at Waterberry during our resent visit to Ballito. We decided treat ourselves with waffles. And what a treat. I had the nougat,white chocolate sauce and almond waffel and my sister had a banana, pecan and maple syrup waffle. The service is good and friendly. As it was windy we sat inside but still enjoyed...

Why would you charge R12.00 extra for pouring cream for a coffee and R40,00 for a plain croissant with butter? A complete rip off and it is not appreciated, in the end a R34.00 Americano tasted 'bitter' and I will not be back!

Lovely place set within a garden, forest setting. The restaurant was nuzzling waited about 15 min for a table. The food was great, service on the other hand needed some attention. For a busy place like that service needs to be upscaled. Breakfast was excellent on the other hand, cheesecake and pancakes were delicious, quite a variety to choose from.

With another couple we decided to celebrate a birthday lunch at the Waterbury. A wise decision as the food, ambience and service was excellent.

This restaurant is set in the most beautiful setting. Bright and airy with bush around it. Stunning birds in the trees and blissful chirping made for a pleasant morning with the girls. Hubby had a hamburger which he said I was great, I had a toasted Sami as I wasn't very hungry, also good, but the winner on the day... More

We had a lunch, coffee and cakes-Absolutely fantastic, we cannot fault anything from service to the food. I will recommend The Waterberry if you're looking for something different and tasty.

Perhaps I expected more. A certain vibe was missing. Yes, service was slow as reported by other guests. We ordered quiche. The food was a reasonable portion and it was warm, served on a clean plate with a little side salad. The setting is lovely with a garden view. The food is in line with the prices. For me this...

We have been for coffee before so decided to go for a late breakfast. The atmosphere is very pleasant and very inviting. Drinks took a long time to come especially since they were not very busy. The food looks and tastes very good. Obviously a good chef! When the food arrived it wasn't as hot as it should have been.... More
