"Dinner Night at De Kloof"

This past weekend we decided to try De Kloof restaurants Contemporary 3-course dinner menu. We each decided on a different starter, and the "Not sushi" was hands down the winner.
The "Crimson beauty" was not so impressive; however, the Cherry sorbet that accompanied the dish was lovely.

We had the "Pork bang bang" and the "Field to fork". The "Pork bang bang" was a spicy pork stew, and we couldn't taste the Pineapple & granadilla salsa. The fillet from the "Field to fork" was delicious.

For dessert, we had "Pina y helado" and "Burnt custard". The "Pina y helado" was the winner, it was superb. The "Burnt custard" Orange biscotti and Cointreau espresso were lovely, but the rooibos creme brulee was overdone.

Overall the food was good the staff were amicable.

The disappointment was that during Restaurant week, not all menu options were available due to some delivery issues. This initiative has been created to ensure a really amazing customer experience and to profile your restaurant.

This did not happen. Out of three menu options for starters and desert, only one option was available. From the mains menu only two options, which would have not been our first choices, were available. The table napkins were damp and not clean (wine stains) and the general cleanliness was not was it usually is.

The staff tried their very best to rescue the situation, and although very helpful and friendly, the situation was what it was...

We were disappointed with our experience in one of our favorite fine dining restaurants in Pretoria. You need to do better than this!

"Great ambience and full flavoured food"
8.3 Cuisine 8 | Service 7 | Atmosphere 10

We opted to do the 5 course degustation with pairing instead and loved it, the food had flavour and the ambience was absolutely great. The staff were super friendly but unfortunately couldn't explain the wine/drink and the reason they were paired (which didn't really go with the food that well). The food was also rather rich/heavy for a degustation menu, which could have been better balanced.

"Average dining experience "
5.0 Cuisine 5 | Service 4 | Atmosphere 6

It was pretty average dinging experience for us. The food did not really stand out, in fact, it was quite salty. We waited for a long time, for the starter, we waited for 40 minutes and the whole three course was 2.5 hours.
