Fancy but laid-back atmosphere with nice seating area outside in the garden or inside in a colonial look building. The service was the best we had in South-Africa! Passionate about their food and wine with giving a lot of useful extra info about the menu card. The food itself is delicious! They blend different cultures and types of food into a diverse choice of menu. The salads, the ostrich fillet, tuna steak all worth the choice. Make reservation, even on a Monday night, but it's packed with locals and tourists.

We always include Kloof St House in our December restaurant schedule. We could never exclude this one. It is always packed. It has so much character we love the decor. It’s so charming and cosy. All the starters are delicious we order a couple to start. I usually have the Ossobuco. It is great. Desserts are superb. Don’t leave this one off your restaurant list. It’s a real treat.

We had an excellent meal in this splendid restaurant. Really good atmosphere, good service, excellent food with plenty of veggie options set in an old building with tasteful decor.
One of the best meals we had in South Africa and a very enjoyable evening at Kloof Street House, recommended!

A lunchtime visit to this restaurant left me wanting to return but preferably at a quiet time and definitely in cooler weather. A steak tartare starter was fair; excellent sauces and sides with the steak but the meat was a bit too chunky for my liking. The main (beef fillet with marrow sauce and chips) was exceptionally pleasant and the chocolate fondant dessert was also very good. However, we sat inside the restaurant and the meal was spoiled by rather slow service and the discomfort of sitting tightly wedged into very low seats in an airless and baking corridor. A move to the ‘library’ at the end of the meal brought some welcome relief.
