Had a great hamburger, needed to do hand-to-hand combat with the burger, the only way to go. Enjoyed the pickled cucumber giving great flavours as well as the the large cut crispy potato chips.

Great banting/LCHF/Tim Noakes menu. The VIC-TIM hot chocolate is a must try. The place seems to always be busy and the service is really friendly.

I've eaten at this restaurant for years now as I holiday in Hermanus and Stanford most years. The staff are great in that they are really friendly and helpful. However the service is not especially speedy so be aware of this if you're in a hurry for any reason. I normally ask for my bill at the same time as... More

On recent trip to Hermanus, I visited Savannah on a number of occasions, and every time really enjoyed the food! Had a lovely toasted cheese sandwich, served with a very nice salad, and served on my choice of bread - ciabatta. On one of the other occasions, also enjoyed some cinnamon pancakes, while my sister had savoury pancakes. The waiters... More

Great food on menu with a variety to choose from, love the breakfast. Staff very friendly, good service. In the centre of town. If you are hungry or thirsty after shopping, this restaurant is easy to reach.

Nice breakfast and excellent coffee. We sat outside which was great, but we seemed to have been 'forgotten' as service was a bit slow. Would like to go back to try their dinner menu sometime.

The Savannah Café is one of our favorites for Saturday lunch when we are in Hermanus. Yesterday's lunch was as good as ever: perhaps even better. The Cob (Kabeljou) was perfectly prepared: not overcooked and still juicy. It came on a bed of fried vetegables with a portion of chips. The glass of Chardonnay complemented it very well. Certainly the... More

I would love to have eaten here but after 15 minutes sitting there with menus in front of us we still could not get anyone to take our order. The waitresses were very attentive to the people on both sides of us (even having to walk past us to get to the next table 4 times) as we sat there... More
