I hate boring stereotypical restaurants & that is why I love this place ! It is tucked away on the main road as you come down into Ballito Beach. It is a family business overlooking a pond, tucked away beneath HUGE Waterberry Trees, hence the...More

Amazing cheese cakes on offer at Waterberry. If you prefer savory/ breakfast or lunch menu there is lots to choose from. Nice walk offered in the small forest below the premises.

We went to the Berry twice on this years annual Ballito trip. The service levels have improved significantly since last year, well done to the management. The food was great, as always. Had their cakes and flatbreads. Very big portions so go hungry!

Gorgeous location, interesting little walk through a densely vegetated path. Great breakfast options; a couple non egg based. Large selection of cheesecakes & other sweet treats. Take home a jar of marmalade or jam.

The food at this tea garden is insanely good. We have never had better poached eggs and tastier bacon before. The balsamic vinegar is also outstanding. Don't ever drop your standards.

This place is fantastic. Good coffee, fantastic cakes and waffles - we also had breakfast there and we were really impressed. The setting is GREAT, especially on windy days. Have the nougat and white chocolate cheesecake and/or waffle if you are a sweet tooth! 🤪

Definitely open for reservations on Sundays. You will find it quite different from the last one which burned down. Less woodsy and more clean and bright ambience, and everything energy-efficient.You will still love it!
