A Day Spent in Gardens is probably one of our most favorite Days in Cape Town, and it wouldn't be complete without dinner and drinks at one of our most memorable restaurants of all time, Kloof Street House.
The definition of a hidden gem, Kloof Street House feels like you walked through the gates into The Secret Garden. We will go as far as to say it may be one of the most stunning restaurants we have ever dined at (and my family is in the restaurant business!) and the cherry on top? The food is just as beautiful and as delicious as the setting. Six months later, Brian and I still talk about the evening we spent here, down to every detail of our meal.
Whether you decide to dine outside on the perfectly eclectic veranda on a warm balmy Capetonian summer evening (as we did) or travel back into time as you walk through the doors of an old Victorian house bathed in old world charm, Kloof Street House is a dining experience offering more visual beauty and imagination than a fairytale novel.
Enjoy a bottle of South African's own Pinotage while reminiscing about your day over the Chalmar beef with smoked marrow bone butter (pst. we like to add the delectable truffle mash because who doesn't love two types of potatoes with their beef?) and the mouth-watering Bouillabaisse. And don't even think about leaving before you round out your meal with the salted caramel cheesecake and popcorn ice cream. YUM.
Ugh, can we go back already??
Pro-Tip: As if Kloof Street House wasn't the Utopia of restaurants already, they have a Sunday Jazz Brunch that can't be missed (reservations strongly recommended).
