Ordered a beef strip with blue cheese salad which... More

Cheesecake was lovely but service was poor and very slow. Waitress was in no hurry to assist. I like the look and feel of the place as it is something else.

A place I can't avoid during my holidays in Ballito. The cheesecake is excellent, the place is very friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxing. This time we found a bigger diversity of products. Well done.

I alllways make a bee line for the Waterberry when I'm in Ballito. Such a friendly atmosphere and home made food. They make the best LEMON MERINGUE PIE in the world.

salmon/trout salad is very good. my husband had the waffle and agreed that we will be back again. service however, is rather slow considering that the place was not full and not much that needed to be cooked

On the recommendation of the manager of the resort where we were holidaying, we popped into Water Berry for morning coffee, and were glad that we did. Situated in a wooded area, overlooking a pond, we were delighted to find this lovely, bright, airy restaurant. The staff were not overly friendly but were helpful. The coffee was good but the...

Went for breakfast on one occasion and enjoyed excellent service. Cheff Bradley and his team are tops. Went for lunch again on a different day and enjoyed good wholesome food, They also stock an amazing range of preserves and jams,

We love Waterberry... it had the best cheese cake you can possibly find. I've given this 4 stars though because service can be slow at times.
