As the name suggests, this is not your ordinary burger joint, but rather a place to experience and savor gourmet burgers with a difference, that raises you into the echelon of certified burger lover. As any true burger lover knows, nothing beats chasing your burger down than a good brew, and DK has a great selection of craft beer to do just that for you. Situated on a golf course, you would do yourself a world of good by sitting outside (if the weather allows it) and taking in the majestic view.

Food
There are options of single origin beef burgers to choose from including the acclaimed Wagyu. South Africa is a country renowned for its wildlife, and the venison burger on offer is testament to that. As befits a gourmet burger, the bun is larger than average, with a nice golden yellow crust that complements the darker colors of the meat. The patty on a bed of salad leaves, cheese, onions and tomato makes for a tasteful sensory experience. The patty is neither dry nor wet but rather oozes with just the right amount of succulent juices and flavor to allow one chew richly, while savoring the blend of all the different ingredients. Want to enjoy your gourmet burger even better, then order a side of sweet-potato chips. The texture and taste of the chips somehow blend with the burgers to excite your taste buds even further. Vegetarians are not left out in the burger delight, as there is a respectable vegetarian burger on offer, that goes well with a side of green salad. After a burger, try the Duo Crème Brulee, which is a mix of lemon verbena & lavender, to end your gourmet burger experience.

Drinks
Chase your burger down with either one of the craft beers on offer, a pilsner, or a weiss, and your day is well and truly made. The Jack Black Lager does this job to perfection. Not a beer drinker and prefer something more genteel? There’s a varied selection of wines (red, white, and sparkling) MCC, and champagne, to suit your palate. Teetotalers have several options of milkshakes and fruit juices to choose from. The San Pellegrino Blood Orange is quite tasty.

Service
The service could do with a bit more sharpening up. The waiters look a bit bored and listless, and even though there’s a brightening up of countenance when attending to and serving you, first impressions really do matter.

Ambience
Being situated on a little hillock overlooking a golf course and an estate is a definite advantage for this restaurant. The bookshelf-lined wall holding books on the burger culture and history of South Africa is a nice touch.

Best for...
Here is a place you can bring your significant other for a lovely relaxed Sunday afternoon brunch. It is also perfect for families with little ones in tow, with lots of safe space for them to frolic in.

    Sunday afternoon lunch. Very quiet. Had a few delays with our food and some of the items that is not available. Overall, good food.
    We had a very disappointing experience on Friday night. We waited over an hour for our burgers. When they finally arrived they were cold and tasteless. The young waiters were very disorganised. There was no manager in sight. Food was coming out the kitchen and going back again because no one knew what table it was for. We were given cold popcorn in a polystyrene container as a snack because the food was taking so long. I complained via a private Facebook message and my husband sent feedback via email. No one has bothered to respond.
    Absolutely great burgers with a great selection of craft beer
