Description: One of the best restaurants in Gansbaai, the owner Kloeks cooks with her heart and it is brilliant
Reviewed 19 July 2014

There's a reason this is the number 1 rated place in Gansbaai.

This is literally a house that has been turned into a small restaurant. If you're lucky enough for it to be open during the slow season of winter or if you're there when it is open and you are in Gansbaai....GO TO THIS PLACE!!

The Prawn Thai Curry was one of the best curries we have ever had ANYWHERE! The line fish was extremely fresh and perfectly cooked. The dessert was amazing. And everyone there is so friendly!!!!

It is not the biggest menu, but that just ensures everything they are making is fresh and delicious. They also do not have wine, which is definitely not a problem as this just means you get to bring with you whatever you want to drink with no worries about a corkage fee or anything.

AMAZING!

We were told that we were very lucky having dinner here in June, because usually they close the restaurant in low season. And yes, we were lucky! Knowing that the four of us were the only guests that evening we expected a limited choice of dishes. But nothing was less true: spoilt for choice. We had a lovely 3 course dinner with very nice wine. With the fire burning there was a cozy atmosphere. Great hospitality and friendliness of the waitress. Highly recommended!

The restaurant was recommended by locals and led to an evening of culinary delights. The prawns were well prepared, large in size and a generous number for a starter. The filet steak was grilled to perfection (medium, perfectly pink with no blood) and accompanied with an exotic (star anise enhanced) sauce. An added bonus was BYO, with no corkage charged, which made the evening affordable even to SA residents earning Rands. Will definitely return to Gansbaai with an overnight (or two) at 'Whalesong' and a meal at 'Kloeks@home'.

We were recommended to go by our hosts at Cliff Lodge. Small private restaurant in home of chef - around 8 tables.

Really pleasant and enthusiastic waiter who described the menu - good choice of meat, fish and veggie dishes. We had the King Klip which was really nicely cooked followed by creamy ice cream with a wicked quantity of excellent home made hot chocolate sauce!

Great ambience and excellent food. Thank you.
