“Cute lunch spot”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

This is a very nice lunch spot in Balito. It has a small garden trail that can be walked before or after eating your meal. The food is great and the service isn't bad either. The restaurant has a jungle gym / play area for kids. But beware the place is generally quite busy and you might have to wait for a table, as they don't take bookings to my knowledge.

“Cheesecake to die for!”

Very enjoyable, worth a visit. Calm and relaxed setting in a forest. Food quality and service was up to scratch!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Clearly a very popular and highly rated restaurant but their slow and apparently disinterested service lets them down badly. With people queuing at the door, a speedier turnaround would be to their own benefit as well as leaving the good taste of the food stronger than the bad taste of slow and poor service.

“Little bit of forest next to the sea”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Visited Waterberry during Jan 2013 with friends for brunch and had a wonderful time. The service was good albeit a bit slow. The cakes are to die for!! Very delicious!!

The restaurant is very quaint and a welcome change from the normal! Would definitely recommend it!

“Luv, luv, luv this place”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

I have been to this restaurant for breakfast a few times and I always make a point of visiting it when in Ballito. Set In a small wooded area with a great menu, and very pleasant atmosphere.. Make sure you browse their wares and have a short stroll around the woods.
