“Fantastic food matched with great wine and a stunning view!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

We visited De Kloof on their Gourmet burger and Beer lunch while watching the Waterkloof Airshow. They had a "burger" selection to die for. Not your average patty. I could see from looking at the restaurant and the menus that this is a place for serious foodies. Wine selection is out of this world. Take some time and look at their special by-the-glass wine fridge.
Truely a great expierence. I cannot wait to go back for supper or a wine tasting evening.
Get on their email list! This is a place to watch!

“Sunday lunch”
Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant is situated in Waterkloof Golf estate next to the driving range offering some nice views over the golf course as well. The alla carte menu can be ordered or make 1 choice from 2 options on the set 3 course menu (R175). We were welcomed with a small dish and home made bread. Food arrived hot and tasty and also looked appetising. Fine crystal glasses for wine and try some of the German or Darling breweries beer for something different and not found everywhere. We had a nice experience and recommend this venue for an upmarket fine dining experience.

“Divine Dining”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

My husband and I, after friends highly recommended De Kloof Restaurant decided 3 weeks ago to have supper there. What a wonderful experience we had! The food was absolutely mouthwatering prepared with fresh ingredients, wonderful pairing of tastes and beautifully presented! We had avocado ritz for starters which was the best we ever had in any restaurant. For main course we had fillet wrapped in bacon which was equally divine. The winelist is extensive and exiting and not the ever- so boring as in most restaurants. The atmosphere is truly romantic. The staff was very friendly and efficient without interrupting every 5 minutes. The owner showed us around and the view from the veranda was breathtaking even at night! Learning about there ever changing menu we will be back and back again to sample more of their unique dishes. Definately the perfect restaurant in Pretoria to experience true fine dining!

“Fine dining”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

This establishment has fine dining to a tee. My wife and I had lunch there on Sunday the 8th and we had not had a pleasant meal like that in a long time. I had a salmon soufle that was absolutely devine while my wife had deep fried goats cheese, yummy.
For mains I had qual stuffed with duck moose that was cooced to perfection, it did lack carbs thaugh so I ordered a portion of the devinest chips ever. My wife had a specialh made by the cheff of Goat cheese tart served on a bed butternut risotto that was beyond belief. Well done to all at De Kloof, a bit expensive but then it is fine dining isn't it. Will definately go back again.

“Breath of fresh air!”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Typically Pretoria restaurants can be quite boring when it comes to cuisine. Most restaurants offer a never changing variation of the same menu "with a choice of starch", haha give me a break! De Kloof is a destination with an ever changing menu to intise. Unique dishes that challenge the mundane,accompanied by a diverse wine list of both local and international. De Kloof demonstrates a passion for the best in local produce in food and wine which shines through in their wine evenings. Going to De Kloof expect something different. Its my restaurant of choice and for date night looking to impress with international cuisine you cant go wrong!
