Food was good, no great. Service was actually disappointing. Value for money not on par...wine pairing not arriving with food. Disrupted waiters serving us. I think they broke half the kitchen crockery while we sat for dinner?

Great dining experience! We felt proud to entertain our friends at De Kloof. The 5 course meal was excellent with distinct tastes. I would say in the same league as The Test Kitchen in Cape Town. 👌👌👌
