Kloof Street House restaurant is truly one of Cape Towns little gems. Set in a Victorian house in the heart of the city, it’s one of the buzzing restaurants on Kloof. Candle lit dinners, lunch in the garden, or drinks at the bar in an atmosphere, that crisscrosses eclectically between 1920’s romance, comfortable chic and homely.
Sunday lunch on a sunny day in the garden is well worth it – laid-back and peaceful accompanied by all that jazz to nourish your soul, with some of the greatest sounds of yesterday.
The culinary experience that comes out of the kitchen is good, hearty cooking. I was thrilled with my starter, beef tagliata with rocket, parmesan and little tomatoes. As a main, I had Moroccan spiced lamb on flatbread with red cabbage slaw and tahini yoghurt. My companion had chicken livers that were outstanding; he was so engrossed in the scrumptious flavors, that he forgot to take a snapshot. His main was the meatloaf special of the day, on a bed of butternut puree, which was heavenly! We did manage to share a signature desert – salted caramel cheesecake served with popcorn sorbet, it was so good, it took my breath away! Kloof House is all about wholesome cooking, with flair towards Bistro style cuisine.
