Went for breakfast on one occasion and enjoyed excellent service. Cheff Bradley and his team are tops. Went for lunch again on a different day and enjoyed good wholesome food, They also stock an amazing range of preserves and jams,

We love Waterberry... it had the best cheese cake you can possibly find. I've given this 4 stars though because service can be slow at times.

We popped in here for a breakfast with a friend while on holiday in the area. The food was good and the venue itself is stunning. We had a toddler and weren't able to sit near the play area (we weren't even aware that there was one until my hubby went out to take the toddler for a walk when... More

I went to go have some brunch here and I know it is a good place with great food. However, the staff were not helpful and service was poor. Very disappointed because I know it can be a good place.

The best place I've been at since my holiday started. Most definitely the best place in Ballito I have been at. Good friendly service. The cheesecake is to die for. Going back there this morning for breakfast. If you don't go there you'll miss out. Awesome decor and forest walking trail. Thumbs up guys!!!

Great ambiance, food and milkshakes. They do tend to run low on menu items towards the end of the day. Kids loved it, great little forest walk. Perfect after a hot day on the beach.

Have heard a lot about this restraunt so just had to try it. The service was excellent and the waitress was very pleasant but the food was very average. I... More
