It was simply a great meal (I had the kudu and loved it.) with excellent service. The prices are also very reasonable for the quality of food you get (i.e. you'd pay double in the US or Europe).

It has been 14 years since we last visited the De Kelder for a meal. It was my son's 21st and it has taken me 14 years to recover from his liquor bill. What amazed me was that from a decor point of view it all looked pretty much the same, I am not saying it is bad but most restaurants need a makeover at sometime. The service we received was impressive and the owner was visible in an unobtrusive way but made sure things happened. Our waitress looked after us well and found the food to be excellent and quality of the highest standards and portions were not mean. All in all a most enjoyable evening, not cheap, but it is a fine dining experience. It will not be 14 years before we return again.

Our hotel manager recommended De Kelker as a nice place to eat with reliable food. And we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The menu was varied and very nice quality. Service was excellent and the management was very much hands-on and visible, making sure all the guests were happy. And so we were. Would recommend this place if going to Port Elizabeth - not far at all.

Great food, the menu has a good selection of different dishes and the vegetarian food is also very hearty and tasty. The wine per glass could be a gamble (the red was fine, the white not so much), but we couldn't complain. Our waitress even organised a taxi on request.

A very good atmosphere in this restaurant. Service very attentive. The Chateux Briand was delicious and creates a great show for all with the dramatic flambé.
Dissapointing starter.
Ordered chicken liver peri peri and specified I would like the dish to be spicy. This was the blandest chicken liver I have ever eaten. Not at all spicy. I had to add Tabasco.sauce to make it spicy. I don't know why restaurants don't understand how hot "spicy" has to be.
