My wife and I are regular visitors to De Kelder when we are in South Africa, but this visit was disappointing, not because of the quality of the food, or the service, but the price of my meal. I chose a grilled sole and was told by the waitress that they were 'large', to which I thought 'fine', but foolishly,... More

We chose this because it was closest to our hotel and was highly recommended by the hotel staff. We couldn't fault it in any way. I would suggest that the restaurant provides a website to give it an internet presence, otherwise we may not have discovered it.

When we arrived we had a warm greeting by the owner, a good table at the window and beautiful food and wine. This is an aesthetically atmospheric restaurant with great service and food. My husband had a steak perfectly cooked (he loves medium rare) and I had the pork ribs. All excellent. I had a glass of sauvignon blanc which... More

Decor might not be hip, it's hardly the happening place to be with the younger crowd, but fine diners in Port Elizabeth cherish De Kelder as that place to take special guests whom appreciate fine dining.

Thank you De Kelder You made vacation so wonderful - and my last evening in PE memorable. Allowed me to play the piano, and most of all served wonderful dinners. Your staff is beatiful, polite, welltrained and able to cater for my allergies. Wow you are great. I still sing "Georgia" remembering the joy you all gave me throughout my... More

We had a great dinner at De Kelder. The catch of the day is highly recommended, those who complain about the interieur just did not pay enough attention on the food.

Located within the Marriott Protea Hotel, therefore no issues with walking at night if you are staying at the hotel. Meal was very good with good menu choice and selection of wines. Make early reservations as this is a popular restaurant in Port Elizabeth. Ask for a table near a window and not next to a main service thoroughfare.

With retro decor, despite its perfect location this venue has no sea views and relies on only 2 things: excellent food and excellent service. It stayed one of our favourite reataurants in Port Elizabeth. Meals are well prepared, decent portions and old-school South African steakhouse menu. You know what you order. It is no nonsense food with quality and quantity... More
