The Waterberry, Ballito (KZN North Coast)



a sight for sore eyes...
Update - 15 May 2015:

After some necessary downtime involving a complete rebuild, the Waterberry is now fully functional again, and much improved!
When next you find yourself in Ballito, this place is a must.

When we first drove past this little gem, I told myself I would be back there very soon, and as the review below will testify, it was a great decision :)

Location and Setting

The Waterberry is located at the bottom of Leonora Drive, Ballito, KwaZulu Natal, right on the edge of a green belt consisting of indigenous trees and plants. There is a lovely walk through this "mini forest" which I would recommend you take, prior to engaging in the many culinary delights.
It will help work up your appetite :)
It is also truly a beautiful setting - a little slice of peace and quiet right in the middle of a rapidly expanding Ballito.

For the kids...


The Waterberry caters nicely for the kids, with several jungle gyms on the premises, positioned slightly away from the eating area, while still being close enough for you to keep an eye on those future Olympic gymnasts in training...
There is also a sandpit where they can dig around and get filthy, as well as some zozo-style huts with mini tables and chairs inside, where the ankle-biters can get some serious kiddie-conferencing / networking done... :)

The Forest Walk is a nice touch if you want to take a relaxing stroll before or after your meal, and also a good way to use up all of the excess energy that children are so good at stockpiling!

As for the menu, we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of effort that was put into the Kiddies section, offering a wide variety of meals for the little ones.
The menu boldly states: "Let us make you some fresh, healthy, slow food. It takes a little longer, but it's worth it.", so I guess this would be an indication that you are putting healthy stuff into those ravenous little tummies.
That little one-liner on the menu also hints at the general vibe of the place - one of chilling out, country living, peace and tranquility.

We found the kiddies nappy changing facilities clean and pleasant to use, as were the adult toilets. Always an important one to think about...!


For the adults...


For a relaxing break in a crazy day of sightseeing / business / exploring, The Waterberry takes good care of its adult patrons with an enticing menu and a wide variety of cuisine to choose from.

The Panini was really good, in particular I must say that the pesto, prosciutto and mozzarella combo worked really well.
To top it all off, who could possibly say no to a slice of decadent Bar One Cheese Cake and a cappuccino?
Me neither... and boy was it so worth it! While I expected a slice of chocolate death, in truth it was not overbearingly sweet, rather it was the perfect ending to an already lovely outing.

Another "adult" consideration would be pricing, which was about average and in-line with other establishments we have been to.

Anything else?


The Waterberry also offers a quaint little home-industry style shop and bakery, where you can stock up on jams, bread, cakes and an array of other yummy stuff that is sure to make you go back for more.

Free admission.

Final words

On every level, The Waterberry impressed us, from the food to the facilities, to the beautiful and relaxing setting.
