Lovely romantic setting hood food nd wine. Pricey but good value for money. Definitely not a place to go if your children is under 12. Lovely for romantic night out. Good ambiance.

One of those rare finds. We stumbled across this wonderful Resturant by chance one evening. The atmosphere on entering was warm and welcoming. The food and wine menus were quite extensive. It is the level of service was simply superb. If you are on the beachfront I would highly recommend you check out de Kelder

People that live in Port Elizabeth love restaurants! We love them, all kinds of food..all kinds of atmosphere. But restaurant-ing has changed significantly in the last 3 years, with gourmet food style restaurants closing and subsequently being replaced by more and more franchises. Restaurants seem to be trying to get the "most" out of their customers, rather than it being... More

I visited De Kelder with some friends and had a great time. The waitron was lovely and we didn't feel rushed. I mentioned that my beef salad was salty and without hesitation prepared me a new salad.

Really excellent service - ever present without being pushy, in spite of a fair crowd at the restaurant. Had the chateaubriand - really excellent - but a little pricey. It's really great to take important strangers to!

This restaurant is in the Port Elizabeth beachfront, close to many hotels. Popular with the tourists and business groups. It offers a warm setting and full Menu. Service is excellent and the food is good.

I took a party of seven to eat at De Kelder and it was a wow experience. We booked in advance and on entering we were welcomed by very friendly staff and escorted to our table. Our waiter was magnificent and nothing was too much of a problem even when two of our younger guests in the party asked for... More
