The steaks were done to perfection, the Tbones did not disappoint and the kingklip looked and tasted delicious. The vegetables and salads were also good 👍 And my Crème Brûlée as I remember it, very good!

Great attentive service. Smart vibe. The two chicken dishes on the menu were very good. I had the prawns, also tasty and nicely cooked. They give complimentary bread to start - probably the most delicious bread I've ever had!

the food is absolutely amazing as well as the wine selection by the glass!!! I had the springbok steak with roast potato and veg and R&R classique by the glass, every bite was melting in my mouth. Home food meets fine dining!

Shared calamari and prawns with camembert wrapped in filo. My main was roast leg of lamb sliced in filo basket. Delicious. Cellar atmosphere and buzzy. Good service, tasty food, great wines, many available by the glass. Sadly had to Uber back to hotel as repeatedly advised not safe otherwise

Delicious fresh food, catering for all tastes. We had the opportunity to try kudu, springbok, and ostrich. The chicken meal was also delicious. Great service and really lovely atmosphere

A busy restaurant that has a great reputation in Summerstrand. Apparently this was a new location for them and it certainly has a wonderful view and décor with inside and outside options. The menu is good and varied so following a wine order we opted for Kataifi prawns and salmon both very good. We followed this with a venison duo with bastille sauce and a kudu with diane sauce. Despite the delay from starter to main we really enjoyed the food. However we give a special mention to our server (Kazimla I think). What an absolute star he was, keeping us up dated and checking in with us and seeing to our every need including helping with a taxi. A big thank you

We visted the new De Kelder again and it is very sad that they are not what they once were… My steak was not rested well (so blood running in plate) and my husband’s order was taken down incorrectly. The staff member didn’t seem to listen to us when we ordered. A few other things happened during the evening as well… Staff not trained as well and as attentive as in the past. Restaurant is a bit loud inside. Price-quality ratio is out of balance. Pricey for what you get on the plate.

Been back a few times already. Love the new premises compared to the old dark restaurant. The food is nothing short of amazing (the most tender, tastiest calamary and prawns ever). Service is excellent. I booked a table for my birthday lunch 2 weeks ago and the effort put into making my table look beautiful, without me asking was incredible. It was definitely not your standard table.

Beautiful decor, wonderful view. A sumptuous menu, vegetarian friendly and a meat lovers delight. Lovely wine list. Very professional and friendly service. The dining area floor management was superb. Each table is carefully and discretely monitored to ensure an experience to remember. Put on your long pants and closed shoes for a proper restaurant evening.

Unfortunately we were very disappointed. Took family for special evening and service was appalling- started off by 2 wines we ordered that was out of stock. Waiter not attentive at all - starters arrived quick and was good. Mains we waited nearly 2 hours. Some customers walked out without eating. Really not worth spending that kind of money for service and or food. Steaks okay - while fish overcooked and bland. - chips cold and tasteless. Today when people go out for a meal they want to enjoy it the total experience as it might be the only luxury you can afford for the month. Seriously doubt if we will go back. Atmosphere not.the same as the old Kelner.

It’s 3 years since we visited Summerstrand. The Restaurant we wanted to re visit first was De Keller in their new premises. We were not disappointed. The food was exceptional as was the service. Great atmosphere with lovely sea views. Highly recommend. Hopefully we will be returning soon.

Great starter! Salmon Rösti! Perfectly served! Wonderful fillet steak, perfectly done with a lovely selection of sauces and side dishes. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for great food and lovely views! Friendly and efficient staff and service even on a busy night! A little more expensive than average but well worth it!

First of all De Kelder has moved from its location to a new space in Brookes . When I booked a table the waiter never told me this on the phone and we landed up infront of the old restaurant - closed! We had to phone to get the correct information and hurry to be in time for our booking. Not what one has in mind for a date night… The new restaurant does not have the warm, old school atmosphere of a « kelder» / wine cellar anymore. So, for me the name « De Kelder » is redundant now. The new decor has an airy, ocean , greek and mediterranean theme but the menu still has the lovely, tasty and trusted dishes. One is however left confused as the two do not go together - greek music playing and a mediterranean theme with a french style / South African menu… The floor plan is very open and there is no sense of intimacy. Tables hosted with many patrons became loud and noisy and I couldn’t even hear our waiter talk. Staff is in definite need of training. They are rushed and the old, attentive «  De Kelder » culture vanished…. Many patrons were dressed very casually and kicked off their slops and sat with bear feet at their tables… Although the food was still good the sense of formality that De Kelder had is unfortunately gone now. Its just another « blue » themed restaurant in Brookes now…
