After taking third place last year The Restaurant at Waterkloof moved up 2 places this year, earning the top spot with their classic-meets-modern French fare. In the words of their triumphant chef: ‘We cook for pleasure and we cook to fulfil our passion and to get recognised for it is an amazing feeling.
