  • Sadly my review on Buitengeluk Restaurant is not as nice as the others on your website, but it is something that I think management should be aware of. My husband asked my daughter in law to make a booking for us, to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary on Sunday 21 September 2014. She called the restaurant on Sunday morning to confirm that the table had been reserved and to make it special for us. Upon our arrival we went to the empty booking desk outside which was filled with menus and no staff member in sight. We asked one waitress, a lady with braids in her hair about our booking and she said, "Just sit at that table over there and she would clean it now", still laden with dirty dishes. When we told her we had a booking she started asking other waiters who were a good few meters away in a loud voice, what she should do. We were told to sit anywhere and they would see to us. All the staff then disappeared and we were left standing there for 20 minutes, after I asked a waiter to call the manager. 20 Minutes later Teddy arrived with the booking schedule and said yes, Cedric's name was on the list and we could sit wherever we liked as due to weather conditions, the table was not where it should have been. Although, by this time, the sun was shining. When we told them a table should have been ready and we have booked, he shrugged his shoulders. We told him that we were leaving and would go somewhere else and he said, OK! I cannot believe the horrendous service and how Buitengeluk managed to spoil a surprise that my husband had prepared a whole week before. I hope this matter will be taken up and I would appreciate an apology in this regard.

  • Venue is beautiful.

    Service is non-existent, which is a clear reflection of Management, not the waitrons.

    Food was good!!

    Overall - there are better options.

  • My husband to be used Buitengeluk to help create our special engagement, He booked out the green house which is STUNNING! They had a single table with some couches inside and i was treated to a English high tea with specialized tea leaves, cute little foods.. he then had them create a bouquet of flowers which was delivered on a silver tray with the ring in a "blushing bride" flower... they made our engagement worth remembering and we are now regular customers!

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

  • We have been to Buitengeluk in the past while it was good each time, we recently went again and can not believe the change. They have a two new managers whom are on the ball and ensured that our visit was fantastic. The building is also undergoing a make over as we can see they have painted new furniture etc.

    The food was great limited to classic dishes but great.

    we can not wait to go back again!

  • Shocking service. 3 hour wait for lunch, then it didn't all come out together, my starter arrived after all the mains. One of our lunch companions waited another half an hour for his chicken pie wWhile the manageress muttered something about cooking it all the way through. Two of our party ordered the kingklip, which came out hard and rubbery. My guess is frozen fish that was defrosted in the microwave, then cooked and left in the warmer for an hour or more. We send it back.They were replaced with more of the same which were also so tough they could bend fork tines. Champagne corkage is R50, which is inexcusably exessive. I ordered creme brulee wherever I go, it's my favourite, and a measure of good cooking, it was ok, finished with a pretty pile of spun sugar, but not the best ever, the sugar top should be delicate and melt in the mouth, not a centimeter thick. It's a beautiful place, but understaffed, overpriced and you will need amazing patience if you ever hope to get anything. Tragic.
