Our Guest House booked De Kelder as a special night out for us while we were staying in Summerstrand. We arrived at 8:00pm and ordered our drinks and meal fairly quickly. Our starters arrived around 9 and our main meal arrived around 10. By this time we had lost our appetite and now can't remember how well it was cooked.... More

Great food and service - taking the shell fish platter was great but if your wallet is limited - ask for the price upfront

We went for dinner in a group of 8 last night. Arrived at just after 7:30 and by 9 pm the five of us who had ordered starters still hadn't been served. First the waitress, then a manager, apologised but said that they were busy. So they night have been, though not all tables full, but the delay that ensued... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a Tuesday evening and were easily seated without a reservation. The decor is quite outdated and the waitresses were wearing black evening gowns which seemed a bit strange. That said all the staff were very friendly and pleasant. I enjoyed my wild boar although my husband was underwhelmed by his beef salad.

Great food served at this restaurant especially the fish which was excellent. Service also very good and great selection of wines to choose from. One point is that the decor could be improved as its a little dated at this stage

I'm not repeating all the good threads from before. Food and service is excellent. Service is high above average. One disadvantage to mention: the restaurant is always full if not even saying (over)crowded. It is very hard to have a good conversation since voices are quite loud. I would not go there for a candlelight dinner with my 1st date... More

Food was good but not excellent. Fish was freshly done. We had to pay for additional small bread at the end... staff very friendly. Restaurant inside a big mixture of everything need to be refurbish .

This is a hidden gem. The interior needs attention. The food and service is 5 star. I eat all over SA and I do rate De Kelder as one of the best restaurants in SA. I had steak the one night and fish the next evening. Without a doubt, the best fish I had in a restaurant in SA. I... More

Arriving late in PE, upon advise of the host of our B&B, we ended up in this restaurant. What a pleasant surprise. Gorgeous (but really!!) food and the staff was so warm-hearted. We loved it. Such a nice welcome to PE.
