At the foot of Cape Town’s vibrant Kloof Street, risen from a fairy-lit garden, lies a dining oasis. Set in a magnificent Victorian house, Kloof Street House is an experience as enigmatic as it is intimate. Our grand old dame is more than just a restaurant, it is a collection of interesting rooms and spaces, each bursting with a character of its own. The venue is everything for every occasion – live jazz over Sunday lunch, romantic candle lit dinners in our dining rooms or cocktails under the trees in our garden. Our delicious meals, cozy ambiance and friendly staff will make you feel right at home.

    I booked well in advance, received a confirmation email which I had to produce on arrival, Friday 1st July 16:45. No booking to be found. How is that possible, email confirmation and not on your booking sheet. Not the first time! Waitress standing inside bending over was not a good reflection of the place to say the least. I would not have minded if we were treated decently but it was clearly a problem with much huffing and puffing to find us a table outside. Tell me, what's the point of booking? When we were finally served we were not offered the specials. Our drinks order was incomplete, one main meal arrived without the additional fries. The food was delicious, service was poor and the lady at the front desk handling the bookings should not be in that position. I have been there before, excellent food and service. Oh dear, its all gone to the dogs. We won't be back.

    A little overpriced but great for special occasions. The waiters are a bit over stretched

    Always a wonderful meal, just found toilets a little dirty and the restaurant requires some TLC. Cracked tiles and the like need attention. Maintenance and upkeep lacking.

    Food is good, but service need to be improved. They took 40 minutes to give us a table despite having a reservation.
