“At the foot of Cape Town’s vibrant Kloof Street, risen from a fairy-lit garden, lies a dining oasis. Set in a magnificent Victorian house, Kloof Street House is an experience as enigmatic as it is intimate. Our grand old dame is more than just a restaurant, it is a collection of interesting rooms and spaces, each bursting with a character of its own. The venue is everything for every occasion – live jazz over Sunday lunch, romantic candle lit dinners in our dining rooms or cocktails under the trees in our garden. Our delicious meals, cozy ambiance and friendly staff will make you feel right at home.”
A couple of friends and I visited the Kloof Street House in Gardens, Cape Town and I must say, it is such a beautiful, beautiful place. The most amazing thing that got me was that there are several sitting areas with very different and intensely artsy vibes of their own. It is heavily decorated in a way that it doesn’t seem too much or too little, it’s just overwhelming, in a really good way.
I had their special for that day, the Bouillabaisse which was quite amazing. It is just a bunch of sea food mixed together in a soup of some sort, it was a very different taste for me, different from what I’m used to and I’d say it was a lovely experience, the food that is lol. Although I enjoyed my drink more, I had their special also, the Kloof Street Tikki. Oh it was amazing, the way the melange of flavours bursts in your mouth, your taste buds are sure to keep alive.
And that’s not even all, we listened to live jazz while we ate. It set such a perfect relaxing mood which gives you the chance to enjoy the food and also the scenery. We actually didn’t want to leave, in fact my friends ordered for a second round of drinks and we stayed a bit longer, it was just so relaxing. I hope you go over there some time and get the experience for yourself, believe me it is well worth it.
You usually need to make a reservation, I think, but you can go on to their website here and look up their amazing menu and contact details.
Of course I took lots of pictures and I have uploaded some just for you so you can experience a little bit of it too, even if it’s just with your eyes :D.
Oh, by the way, this burgundy wide leg pants was made by me, full details coming on the fashion side of the blog soon ;).
P.S: I’m not a model, I just love posing like one :’)
Meet my amazing partners in crime lol.
Met these lovely ladies wearing beautiful flower crowns which they had just made right there while they had their lunch. One of them is getting married and I assume that was the planning session. They all look so pretty! Love it!
I think this is a perfect place to come read a book when you’d rather be outdoors on a lazy weekend afternoon, look at that beautiful setting just for one. Away from all the madness and drama, find peace in your little solitude.
I hope you loved the pictures and even if just a little bit, you experienced a little of what this place is like. I hope you visit soon. Muah!
