This must be on your bucket... More

Beautiful building, great views, friendly and experienced staff. Extremely good for wine tasting and cheese platter (relatively inexpensive). You'll need deep pockts to eat a "formal" meal there however.

We returned after two years and found the place as beautiful and good as before. The problem with the community about the wine at the dinner has been solved. A pity as you do not have to taste wines first anymore and choose your wine for the dinner. The chef is still there and the menu was wonderful again. All... More

From the moment we walked in the staff was extremely attentive. The a la carte menu is not extensive but what it offers is spectacular. The dishes are presented beautifully and the flavours (and combination of flavours) is stunning. I definitely recommend this to enjoyers of fine dining and wine!

Driving up the small road , the sight of this building hanging over the hill nearly takes your breath away. The building is big, built to impress and wonderful. Huge ceiling to floor glass panels affords you the view over the Strand and Gordon's Bay. The stoep with its numerous couches is a perfect place to take in the sunset.... More

Beautiful very modern building. Tasting dinner was like it came out of a laboratory. Staff was not friendly. Definitely no recommendation for this establishment

A meal at Waterkloof is an astonishing experience. The architecture and design is ultra modern - we found ourselves constantly looking at it. It is like nothing we have experienced before. The views are superb but then we were lucky enough to get a window seat. As regards the Dodd it was about as good as it gets. But then... More

My cousin took us there for lunch today.. An amazing venue. The Cape/Somerset West, is blessed with some amazing wine farms. This is no exception. The venue is newish, the wine is fresh and very tasty. We had one of their Rose's and a glass of the Cabernet Franc. Beautiful soft and tasty wines. The food is nouveau cuisine.. Beautifully...
