Everything about this wine farm oozes style and class. From the out of the ordinary architectural design of this building to the extraordinary 2 and 3 course meals prepared by gourmet chefs in an open kitchen. They received numerous awards for the fine foods they...More

The restaurant at Waterkloof sets the standard others would be wise to learn from. It is exceptional and their choice of wines to match, just perfect. We have been visiting the restaurant annually whilst visiting South Africa and it never disappoints. Each course leaves you...More

Great food, presented in a calm and natural way. No need to hurry. With the devastation menu there are a lot of surprises. Only thing missing was just a bit more wine in the wine pairing

Waterkloof appears to 'balance' in a vineyard. The building is spectacularly modern, the food a spectacular work of art and the fact that the restaurant is located in a biodynamic working farm/vineyard yet another bonus. The wines are interesting and of a high standard for...More

Excellent menu and great experience. Would like to return for a lunch to enjoy the views which one cannot really appreciate during dinner.

My wife and I spent our anniversary dinner here. The courses were presented beautifully, and the taste was refined and complex. Excellent experience at an affordable price.

Not one that is written down anywhere, BUT, it is a special place even if you are just visiting for lunch it is nice to be 'smart/casual'. I would say no shorts, no vests and be comfortable...... a cool summer dress/skirt... More

Hi, agree with the previous comments. Waterkloof is an excellent restaurant (with a wine tasting lounge) with a fabulous view, but is not a B&B. Definitely need to check your travel plans. Hope this helps.
