Paarl offers so many good and great places to eat along Main Road that no one needs to consider stopping at De Kelder. Chain restaurants are not expected to serve gourmet cuisine. But 'serviceable ' is a reasonable expectation. Timely service and delivery is another reasonable expectation. You just will not find these reasonable expectations met at this eatery. Whether...

We arrived at 19.30 with very high expectations, nice building, decor good, make-up for Valentine poor. Service, none existing. At 20.55, 2 beers later and a highly upset wife, no food served, no apologies. Ask to see the manager at the counter, the reaction I got was to say the least, pathetic. The guy at counter simply said, "I'm the... More

We were a family of 7 and went to De Kelder for lunch. Service was very slow and we had to repeatedly ask the waiter for water, drinks or whatever it was before it was served. Waited for an hour before food arrived. Calamari 3/3 was burnt and very tough. Cajun chicken salad was a mess with veggies that was... More

We had the unfortunate experience of having dinner on Saturday evening. The manager was having a personal tiff with our waitress and as a result, the service went from acceptable to non existent. Our waitress was more interested in sweeping the floor than being in the "service" area of the restaurant. The second manager decided to "one up" the other... More

Me and my eldest son went for a quick dinner. I ordered an eisbein, and asked the waiter to make sure it's not the smallest one. Boy oh boy was I surprised at the piece of hog she brought me! I am a big fellow, but with the nice veggies I could not finish my dinner. With the honey and... More
