Brilliant ambiance, lots of character. We were a table of 4 and no-one really enjoyed their food. Some waiters were good, others needed more training and people-skills!

Had a family dinner at Kloof and sat in the garden. The restaurant is an old house with a fun bohemian chic interior. Very nice dinner and prices are so much lower than we are used to. Very popular, so book a table!

Love the place. In Cape Town on vacation and we will be going back because we liked it so much. Great service, great food, awesome drinks and all of that for a really good price. Btw: the setting is also fantastic. Looking forward

Best Porn Star Martinis in Cape Town. Not sure about the food as we didn’t eat . Folks around us eating seemed to be posh burgers with fries etc. Obviously a place for the monied younger crowd. Would recommend for a pre- dinner beverage.

Had been apprehensive about my first visit because of a reputation for slow service, but a group of us had an excellent evening with extremely good food and great service from Nikita, who looked after our table. Service levels and timing could not be faulted...More
