Second time we visited De Kloof. Chose the 5 course meal with wine pairing. Serving plates seen better days. Food were "ok". First course was bland in taste. Twice the waiter forgot to bring the wine with the food. Not good value for money.

You’re greeted by a rather outdated setting and equally clumsy, uninformed staff. The small portions, though carefully presented, accentuate tough and somewhat bland offerings. You’ll need a proper meal before or afterwards. The wine selection isn’t bad, but make sure you get the year that...More

Sadly this restaurant just misses the mark on many levels of a fine dining experience. The tasting menu was mediocre and the service whilst attentive (granted we were the only patrons) lacked the finesse and experience required.

We liked before De Kloof but just find that they are compromising on service and quality from before. The waiter was trying but did not know the menu and we found it to be somewhat impersonal.

We recently attended a wine pairing evening with overseas guests. We have done many such evenings in various restaurants in Pretoria but felt disappointed. We understand that a power cut impeded the evening and made allowances for that. Even so, I was very surprised that...More
