After a total mess when they completely messed up a reservation informing us that they had a private party around 8.15 when we had a reservation for 8.30 for weeks we were all naturally quite angry and it is not easy to find a good alternative at that time of the evening.

In the end we did and much against our better judgment agreed to go the following day.

Actually the staff who had been so rude were welcoming and very good.

Unfortunately the air conditioning had packed up which made it very uncomfortable indeed especially since the restaurant was packed inside and out!!

However I am surprised to say that apart from the heat everything turned out well with good food wine and service.

My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at Kloof Street House. We started with a cocktail at the elegant, old-world bar (a delicious smoked Nigroni) and then moved to the main dining room for dinner. The room was packed with a nice looking urban crowd, and there was a not-too-loud buzz in air. For dinner we shared the steak frites and the onion tart, both of which were very good. Paired with a nice South African red we were all set! We skipped dessert because we indulged at lunch. Highly recommend Kloof Street House and will definitely return when we find ourselves in Cape Town again.
