This is an excellent restaurant and we had twice dinner here. Service is quite slow, so be early in case you have kids (place for improvement: serve the kids fast, so you get rid of them again... :-). All in all a great place, bring your own wine as they have no licence.

Excellent décor and really clean and fresh. A warm welcome and made to feel comfortable. Mussels were nice and fresh, Thai green curry very good with some really interesting deserts on offer. The fact that you can take your own wine make for an affordable night out on the basis that you have booked in advance. Prices are probably on... More

While staying in De Kelders at the excellent Cliff Lodge, the owner advised us to dine at Kloeks @ Home and we’re so delighted that we did so, as this proved to be the stand-out meal of our trip. Kloeks is a quaint, friendly, family-style restaurant – with a warm ambiance that almost feels like a private house party. We... More

I had the Thai Green curry and it was absolutely delicious. Be sure to make a booking as they are not likely to be able to seat you otherwise

It looked like a regular house from the outside. Elegant but still a house on the street. The second the gate opened it was apparent that was incorrect. What beautiful decor. Yes fairy lights are a bit overdone but it seemed to work. Not too many people, but in a good way. The service was surprisingly prompt, professional, yet personable.... More

We had dinner for five. In the area there is very little nice restaurants around. Here you need to book in advance, always crowded. Great atmosphere like in a family living room. Great food, great service. Bring your own wine always a great idea.

We chose Kloeks due to the fantastic reviews but to be honest I was not as blown away as I would have expected. I had a fillet of beef with carrots, green beans and caramelised onions which was tasty but not in my opinion worth R170. My husband had a Thai chicken curry for R120 which he said was quite...

This was truly an enjoyable evening out with good food and excellent service. With no alcohol license - we could take our own choice.

We came here with friends Wilma and Cees, who love this place. Everyone is very friendly but what makes this restaurant stand out from the others is the quality of the food. If this was in Franschooek or Cape Town it would cost you a fortune. We will be back next year.

Our b & b recommended and booked us in for dinner. If you have the prawns here you will be reluctant to order prawns anywhere else as they can never be as good as the ones served here. Friendly staff, only too pleased to open the wine you bring with you. Make sure you book in advance.

Thank Peter D
