Bad food and wine, a tourist trap and most likely rated high by people that are either drunk or high!!! My ribeye was boiled and tasted like liver. The prawns tasted like old garlic. My girlfriend's bouillabaisse was bad. The wine was very mediocre despite highly priced. Don't ever go here! Especially not if you are into food and wine!!!

We got a seat in the garden, eventough it was a cold evening we did not notice this. There we heaters and lights and we felt comfortable. Then the waiter... More

We had a table on the veranda overlooking the outside patio. It was one of the best tables in the place. It was a Monday night and the place was packed. Yet the service was great. We shared the baked Camembert for an appetizer and then each had the Bouillabaisse; both were beyond excellent. Everything about this place is high... More

No doubt it's gorgeous in every way, and staff training and delivery superior. Just thought the food not quite as tasty or presented to match the services. But overall, not disappointed. It delivered enough for 4*s.

Really one of the best dinners i had in CT. Venue and ambiance -eclectic, alive yet an undertone of class. Waitron had the ability to read us, attentive, informative, but not in your face. Food was to the T and went beyond expectations. Expansive wine list. All in all, recommendable to anyone who wants to have an exclusive evening, with... More

Kloof Street House must be the most trendy and chick restaurant in Cape Town. Everybody there was beautiful, the waitrons were viby interesting people who delivered a fabulous service attitude and made us feel so welcome and included. The food was amazing and the ambiance was like a trip into a Tarantino movie.

I love this place. Beautiful ambiance, renovated house, quirky and stylish interior and fun garden area. Dined on a Saturday afternoon, service was very attentive and friendly and they also put with a very active 4 year old that was part of my party of 3, everyone was very nice. I ordered the squid and prawn starters followed by the... More

We enjoyed a birthday celebration here. We were warmly greeted with a glass of champagne. The service was very good, very prompt, perhaps a little too prompt at times as we wanted to dine and relax over dinner. We ate indoors as opposed to the garden. The noise level was a bit high and we found the tables were very... More
