We were a party of 4 (friends). It was a week day and the restaurant was not full. The food was of high quality and the wine selection was amazing. Not cheap. Nice for a special occasion or celebration. Lots of parking.

We visited de Kloof during restaurant week. It was a very pleasant surprise. Food was delicious, staff very friendly and well trained not the usual pushy attitude. The view from the deck is excelent. We had a 3 course dinner and liked the choice of starters very much. Prices are a bit steep but worth every cent!

Very good for dining with a difference. Set in a secure estate, overlooking the Groenkloof valley. This is a restaurant for special occasions where your guests or partner will be surprised at the menu offering and especially the paring menu where wine is pared with the food offerings. This does cost quite a bit extra but you can also enjoy... More

Great fine dining experience. We did the 5 course tasting menu - it really is worth the price. Great wine list. Lovely views. Fantastic for a romantic night out.

A restaurant with a good view for a lovely afternoon lunch, or even a summer's view. A bit pricy, but good food. Had lunch there and enjoyed the atmosfer,mwith the view. Good wine and good service overall.

It was our first visit to De Kloof Restaurant but definitely won't be our last. I can recommend their lunch menu as offering really fine food at a price that I thought was a mistake. Great value for money. Give the goat's cheese panacotta a try - silky smooth. For lovers of single malts, there is a very good selection.... More

There is little to be excited about De Kloof, it feels and looks like an average mid-price hotel restaurant. Lovely view. The service is avarage, and there there is really no reason to drive to this security estate for lunch. My wife had the monkfish for mains and I had the lamb, which was not bad. All this place needs... More

Very good food and fantastic wine pairing from the menu. We had a wonderful time celebrating a 40th birthday with good friends. The portions are not large, but are certainly sufficient and for this quality of food, prices are reasonable. The best thing for me was the wine pairings which were superb.
