We went with our family (2 kids, 2 adults and 2 grandparents). We wanted a light lunch and have been to Waterberry before on previous visits to Ballito (before the fire). The service was very slow (45 minutes) for our meals to arrive. The sparkling water arrived warm as they had "run out of cold ones". The waitress wasn't very... More

We were a group of 5 people. Our waiter forgot an order. Our coffee was served cold. The french toast was made with brown bread?! We requested hot hollandaise sauce, however it was served cold. The english muffin served with the Eggs Benedict was rock hard. The pork sausage served with the mixed breakfast was served rare. All of this... More

The place was recommended to us by a local resident and we were looking forward to a breakfast treat. Unfortunately our experience was soured by a poorly trained waitress and poor management response. The location does compensate a bit. It is a pretty place and for this reason, we will probably go back, but it will not be a first... More

The Waterberry is an ideal place for a light healthy lunch. It is bright and spacious with a lovely family atmosphere. A warm welcome from friendly and efficient staff made us feel at home. With a varied selection of meals to chose from, including a kids' menu, we were spoilt for choice. Our choices were varied but all were good.... More

Really a great place for cheescake...AWESOME SELECTION. Breakfasts are good with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Service is on the slow side, but if are prepared to wait you won't be sorry. A gentle stroll through the natural forest is a must.

Overlooking a peaceful forest this is a great place to stop for breakfast or light lunch. Always popular with locals and holidaymakers alike and seating is available on the deck or inside the restaurant. Most enjoyable for a casual dining experience.
