A modern space featuring spectacular vistas, Waterkloof Wine Estate’s signature restaurant is literally taking quality Winelands dining to new heights. Gorgeously appointed in a glass promontory, the restaurant extends from the chic wine tasting lounge and gravitational cellar. Within its walls, Chef Gregory Czarnecki whets the appetite with contemporary classics, complemented by the estate’s elegant wines.
The restaurant’s open-plan kitchen emphasises the Waterkloof winemaking philosophy of openness and transparency. Although contemporary and stylistically diverse, each of the Waterkloof wines carries a strong core of elegance and integrity, and that is exactly what the food is all about – classical cuisine with a modern French twist.
Chef Czarnecki places an emphasis on using only the freshest seasonal ingredients, such as free-range eggs, farm-reared Schapenberg lamb, and a variety of common and rare herbs and vegetables – many of which are grown and sourced right here at Waterkloof. Please note the menu is subject to change.
Most recently The Restaurant at Waterkloof was awarded the coveted title of Best Restaurant in South Africa by Eat Out Guide during the 2018 Eat Out Awards.
Waterkloof is a beacon of architectural excellence atop the Schapenberg Hills. The spectacular building design is based around virtues that echo our winemaking style, such as honesty and transparency.
In 2009, Waterkloof Cellar triumphed as the first South African architectural feat for Castle Rock Design, an Australian based company that is internationally recognised for its innovation in the design and management of wineries, luxury resorts and hospitality-related projects.
Castle Rock Design’s impressive CV includes numerous cellars in Australia and Europe, and the Injidub Spa Retreat which received an exclusive listing with Small Luxury Hotels of the World – a title shared by only a handful of elite luxury hotels and resorts in Australia.
