We went for supper at Waterkloof. What a venue! The decor is beautiful and the views are to die for. If going to Waterkloof see that you get there early to enjoy the sunset and the view before it gets too dark. Have some wine around the beautiful log fire. The food was sublime and the wine well paired.

Set high up on a hill at Somerset West this contemporary restaurant and winery is without doubt worth visiting.

The service is soft polite and professional in a calm ambiance. The chef is certainly a “proper “ chef and the presentation is excellent. I really can’t fault anything with the food or restaurant.

It is a shame the building cannot be turned 90 degrees for the best view over False Bay. Their wines are perhaps not the best that can be had in South Africa but the wine tasting is very genuine and not just offering the cheapest plonk, as in some nearby vineyards for tasting.

So go a little early, try some wines and then order a bottle of the one you like with your meal which will be a pleasure I assure you.

Best food we had during our trip! We went to the Waterkloof for dinner on 22nd February. This is a truly outstanding place to dine. Take courage and drive up the long Tarmac drive to a fabulous modern glass and and concert building with spectacular views. The food produced by Chef Gregory and his staff is first class, truly delicious. There is no comparison between the Waterkloof and some of the other restaurants which we visited during our stay in South Africa.
The service at the Waterkloof is seemless - this is a restaurant to visit and have a memorable dining experience.

A recently discovered venue for us although we live in the vicinity - and what a find it is! I recommended the restaurant as the venue for a birthday celebration and would have been hard pressed, in retrospect, to have found a better venue for the occasion! All five guests enthused about the three course meal (the camembert starter totally sublime ~ not to be missed) as well as the Waterkloof wines. Fabulous food, wine, venue and out of this world views...
Highly recommended ~ we will all be back.

We have dined at Waterkloof on at least five occasions and all of them have been fantastic. The food is beautiful and well executed with amazing technique. The wine is delicious and well paired with the food and dramatically beautiful view. Highly recommend a meal here
