Another busy restaurant that was booked for us by our hotel. Set is an amazing Victorian building, with tables in and around the various rooms and with a bustling terrace seating area. We had a table just inside, possible what used to be a veranda, overlooking the garden terrace. The décor is as you would wish for a building of... More

This is a must go to place. Stunning wine - food really of Michelin star quality. Our fabulous waitress Dominique's wine and food recommendations were spot on. The atmosphere is magical. We popped in for one drink and stayed to eat dinner. Very highly recommended. Don't miss this place if in Cape Town.

This is an amazing restaurant. The quality of the food, service, and setting is simply amazing. I had baked camembert with onion marmalade and beetroot chutney for a starter, fillet steak with bone marrow butter for a main, and cheesecake with salted caramel and popcorn icecream as dessert. All of the food was perfectly prepared and extremely tasty. The service... More

We had dinner at Kloof Street House on our last night in Cape Town. The restaurant was crowded by what seemed to be mostly locals. The place resembles a house, with several different "rooms". We were going to eat on the outside terrace but it was rainy and we had the kids so we asked for a table inside. As... More

Ate here one evening and got a nice table overlooking the courtyard area so I had the best of both worlds - inside and outside. The appetizers were tasty as were the cocktails and the steak was cooked to perfection. When we told the waiter we were heading to their sister bar down the street he gave us a stamp... More

We love Kloof Street House for its decorative and bohemian flair. The interior is inviting and a mish-mash of comfort and chic. The outside is a beautiful garden with fairy lights. What really makes it special though is that you wouldn't even know that you are just off the very busy Kloof Street in Cape Town. The food is lovely... More

Super swanky dinner/ drinks spot. Cool crowd and vibe! Has indoor and outdoor seating- outside is romantic- good for dates. Make a reservation!!! Seems hard to get into, but worth it. The food was great!
