We are absolutely delighted to announce that The Restaurant at Waterkloof has won its first American Express® Platinum Fine Dining Award!
The prestigious American Express® Platinum Fine Dining Awards Programme was launched by Nedbank in South Africa 14 years ago, and 94 restaurants have been honoured for 2014. The award ceremony was held at Queen Victoria 54, Cape Town on 23 September 2013.
Tina Venter, Head of Card Marketing for American Express®, explained that the awards “commend the restaurateurs whose sterling work and dedication to the industry and delivering an undeniably exquisite culinary experience – give many diners and those that are new to fine dining, a compelling reason to come back for more.”
Judge and restaurant critic Victor Strugo added that “the common link that encompasses all these genres as ‘Fine’ is the consistency in striving for excellence – of ingredients, of cooking skills, of food presentation, of menu and wine list construction and harmonisation, of décor that complements identity, of service and hospitality. This adds up to overall professionalism.”
The Restaurant at Waterkloof was among 17 first-time recipients of the American Express® Platinum Fine Dining Award. Executive Chef Gregory Czarnecki accepted the award on behalf of his team, and we couldn’t be prouder of them for this outstanding achievement.
Congratulations to the 2014 winners! We would like to thank all of our loyal supporters and we hope to welcome you all to Waterkloof again in the near future!
