This was the best find of all in restaurant week and the restaurant blew us away. Excellent welcome with complimentary bubbly, then small additional courses to showcase the chef's efforts came as a pleasant surprise. We will definitely be going back soon.

Atmosphere was bad, food took forever to be served , food didn't taste good, my kids kept complaining about the poor taste. Someone from management was present and didn't have the good manners to welcome customers .

Second time we visited De Kloof. Chose the 5 course meal with wine pairing. Serving plates seen better days. Food were "ok". First course was bland in taste. Twice the waiter forgot to bring the wine with the food. Not good value for money.

My husband ended work early and I thought let's go somewhere different. I have vague memories of being here before, as it looks over the golf course, which is quite pretty although not in the gloomy weather that day. I was using a crutch and...More
