On a recent trip to Balito in South Africa, we stopped off at The Waterberry for breakfast. It's a lovely restaurant with an outside deck over looking a pond. Gives the feel like you are having a meal in the forest. I would however say that it get boiling in the sun that time of the morning. We actually moved... More

The Waterberry has changed its appearance since our last visit but the food and service is still outstanding. This is the perfect place for a lazy breakfast and the menu is extensive. Only sorry we live in UK and can only visit when on holiday.

We sat on the deck overlooking the natural pond, with waterlilies, arum lilies and reeds growing in it, and coastal forest up to the banks. It was beautiful and restful. Our waiter was very attentive and the service excellent. Our meals were delicious. I would go back there in a flash, for a meal or tea or coffee, with one... More

Visited on a short trip to durbs. This place is set is a beautiful little garden overlooking a pond with some fish. Food is good. I would have liked my muffin on eggs onasis to be buttered. Waffles looked good. Apparently they have amazing cheesecake but we didn't try it. The atmosphere gets 10/10 and will definitely visit again if... More

This restuarant/bakery has amazing food with amazing waiters. You feel right at home, and get the feeling that all employees have a passion for what they do and are there to serve you with the best they have to offer. Do not forget to take a walk in their "little jungle", it lets in a little serenity and peace!

One of my favourite coffee shops with some amazing treats! Something for the whole family including a nice little walk in nature. Do yourself a favour and visit The Waterberry!

What a beautiful spot. We haven't been back since the restaurant was re-built and were so pleasantly surprised with the contemporary feel, the modern menu and the delicious food. Our waitress Fabienne was delightful and served us well despite a packed restaurant. It is kid and teenager-friendly and there is even a lovely forest walk. Definitely recommended.
