It is 5 years since my last visit here...and remembering how good this place was then, a visit was always on the cards. Sometimes a mistake....... Yes the place had changed hands, twice I think in that time.....the menu was pretty much the same, yet there was something not quite as good.....maybe a different chef interpreting the menu? Still a... More

Instead of trying to get reservations (on Saturday evening, November 29th) in various 'sea-view' restaurants of Hermanus, we decided to dine at Savannah Cafe. It was the most wonderful surpise! The menue offers a good variety at very fair prices. The quality of each dish competes easily with other highly ranked restaurants. The service lady is of top class African... More

On my visit to Savannah Cafe, we were welcomed by warm smiles and genuine people. The service was extremely quick, professional and the food tasted amazing. You definitely get the most value for your money! When I return to Hermanus, I am going back for their famous "melktert pannekoek". Keep up the good work Savannah Cafe!

An excellent menu with a lot of different dishes to choose from to satisfy the whole family and everything looks really good. I had the grilled calamari with rice and it was amazing! Best calamari I had in a long time! Definitely a must to be added to your bucket list if you are making a turn in Hermanus. Quality... More

The menu I find is often nicer than the actual food. Although it is good food, I would appreciate the less is more principle here, portions are big and often too many flavours drown out any particular uniqueness to a dish for me. But a good setting, clean and interesting menu, with fresh food and slow service.

Excellent food. Great care is taken with the presentation and the quality is certainly worth a visit. Food portions are generous and the gourmet burger was fantastic. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. Savannah had a great atmosphere - relaxed and welcoming. Will certainly be making a repeat visit!

We had lunch at Savannah Café during our 10 day stay in Vermont. Our party, consisting of three adults, strongly advise to go to this restaurant! A big thank you to Sibo, our waitress, whose friendliness made our visit a truly great experience. I did not get the name of the manageress, but she really went out of her way... More
