Great food, presented in a calm and natural way. No need to hurry. With the devastation menu there are a lot of surprises. Only thing missing was just a bit more wine in the wine pairing

Excellent menu and great experience. Would like to return for a lunch to enjoy the views which one cannot really appreciate during dinner.

My wife and I spent our anniversary dinner here. The courses were presented beautifully, and the taste was refined and complex. Excellent experience at an affordable price.

Bit late in reviewing, but The Restaurant at Waterkloof gave us the best meal of our extended trip to South Africa. Beautiful restaurant, the floor to ceiling windows, fabulous piece of showmanship with the 'magic' hand towels. The food was amazing, beautifully presented by our...More

We were a party of 18, attending a Silver Seas cruising presentation, so the Waterkloof kitchen had offered a very limited set menu (one starter, a choice of two mains, and one dessert). Our table discussed the concept of 'fine' dining before we were served,...More
