Most enjoyable evening at the The Girls - the prawns was succulent and cooked to perfection. Our desert was a selection of 5 small yummy treats - enough for 2. Great winelist. Excellent attentive staff - eager to please. We recommend this restaurant

Delicious South African inspired food. Seafood was delicious. The location is next door to the petrol station but once inside the decor is fine. Enjoyed our meal here.

Food is good, although the ambition is higher than the result, still I think its the best in Hermanus. Location could be better.

While the service was reasonable the food was disappointing. We sat at the 'chef's table' so had the kitchen in full view through a 'one way' window. All was calm and well organised but the food lacked imagination - almost every main dish had a large portion of stir fried vegetables and rice with plain grilled meat or fish with... More

The decor at the girls is not really my taste. A bit old fashioned. But the food was excellent. I had the mussels in a spicy sauce. mmm. My husband had the trio of line fish. He finished it off with what he says is the best chocolate brownie he has ever had.

Knowing how popular this restaurant is we booked before leaving the UK and we were not disappointed. The food was brilliant with attentive customer service and we HAVE to eat at the Girls at least once whenever we are in Wilderness. Don't be put off by its unpretentious surroundings - once inside the food and service make for a very... More

We love this place, its unpretentious and the food is great! My mum had their recommended fillet with fig and balsamic sauce, I had their seafood platter for one. My mum thoroughly enjoyed her fillet - the portion was generous and beautifully cooked. My seafood platter was as good as it was last time but I must admit I regretted... More
