Agree completely with "Shirl F" review below. My second visit tonight (An invitee) and I will never return. The setting/decor is fantastic. The food may well have been good, I can however not be certain due to having lost my apetite after overhearing a string of profanity coming from the back. A minute later 2 'barely out of their teen' girls ran out in tears. My second visit was a repeat. Multiplied by 10. Imagine my surprise when a friends son returning from his first week as a waiter mentioned that he was quitting. The reason - Not only had Owner Paul not paid the youngsters their tips for working a double at an event a few days ago saying "I have not been paid yet so how can I pay you" But tonight, for the 3rd time in his 1 week at Kloof Str House, Management & Senior Staff bullied a young female waitress, making her PAY them R1700.00 because the establishment had 'misplaced' their copy of the slips from the evenings credit card takings. I am absolutely horrified!

Had dinner here last eve. Overheard the manager giving the staff hell with every second word being f**k. Had to get up and let them know that I couldn’t avoid hearing them. Aggressive manager came over later and apologized for what he called “normal banter”! I used to love this place but now that I know how the staff are treated, I’m not so keen. No wonder the staff are always new.

WHilst the venue, ambience, decor and service were excellent, I was disappointed with the main course of Moroccan Lamb. The flavours were good but the lamb (which was supposed to be lamb rump) was very fatty and chewy not tender as I expected. Hence my 3 star rating. My starter of baked camembert however was amazing.
