“Best Food & Ambience”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We have been to Kream a number of times before. It has always been a pleasant experience. The food is delicious (be sure to give the Salmon a go), the wait staff is professionally trained and friendly, and the ambience is one of pure bliss. Such a lovely wine selection too. Definitely recommend this!

“Good food, service and price, difficult to find it though”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

I really enjoyed the food, service and price here! Great presentation, nice environment . Very difficult to find the restaurant, ensure to check and phone upfront as satnav leaves you all but at the restaurant. Could do with some boards indicating direction. Will go again!

“Worth a 2nd attempt”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This was out second visit to Kream, on the last occasion (in 2012) we entertained clients and found the place to be quite disappointing. Service was average, the environment and attitude was very pretentious and the expensive food was disappointing. We said we wouldn't come back.

But then we were invited back to try Kream by a friend celebrating a birthday - we were pleasantly surprised. Perhaps it was the informal gathering, the excellent company, or the fact that we dined in the upstairs private room, but this time the service was quite good, the meal was excellent (echoed by all of our group) and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

“Great food!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

After being told by numerous friends that this eatery is a must visit, I finally went. My only disappointment is I didn't try it sooner!!! The food was scrumptious, service impeccable and atmosphere lively! Kream is all about the food and doesn't disappoint. We ordered the specials of the night and they were made to perfection. Kream certainly made driving to Pretoria worthwhile...

“Can't fault the food, but the service was dire.”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The food in Kream has got to be some of the best in South Africa. An extensive menu, from l'escargot to salad starters to some amazing steaks for main course and a great selection of fish - it truly is a gourmet's delight. The starters are a little overpriced; the wine is certainly overpriced; and the main course is excellent value for such quality food.
However, be prepared to wait. There seems to be scores of people serving the tables but order a glass of champagne with your desert and it comes back 20 minutes later, when the ice cream is well and truly melted. This is the second time I visited and there was no improvement in service. The previous time, they forgot to bring desert.
