Modern yet unadorned with spectacular vistas, Waterkloof Restaurant is set against the majestic backdrop of the estate’s amphitheatre of bio-dynamic farmed vineyards and the full expanse of False Bay in the distance.
Juxtaposed against the traditional, functional working cellar, this contemporary milieu of great visual appeal, whets the appetite with Burgundian chef Grégory Czarnecki’s unique culinary creations made with the finest local seasonal produce.
Here food is art, calling for unhurried appreciation and complemented by seamless service. Chef Czarnecki draws inspiration from the restaurant’s spectacular setting, perched high on the slopes of the Schapenberg with an eagle’s view over False Bay.
The restaurant’s open plan kitchen emphasises the Waterkloof winemaking philosophy of openness and transparency. Although stylistically diverse, each of the estate’s wines carries a strong core of elegance and integrity and that is exactly what the food is all about. Classical cuisine cooked in a contemporary, eco-conscious style with a whimsical, creative edge.
In addition to the restaurant’s a la carte menu and Degustation Tasting Menu (comprising of six mouthful portions of the restaurant’s most popular dishes matched with six estate wines), Waterkloof Restaurant also has set 2- and 3-course indulgences to choose from.
What makes Waterkloof Restaurant, with its over scaled, pictorial views of the farm and nature in progress, so unique is that at all times one feels part of the farming and winemaking process, no matter if you are outside on the balcony or inside, enjoying good food and wine.
