We ordered the Prawn curry and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Very good service and value for money.

Fantastic Fantastic Fantastic...... Its worth coming to Hermanus to just have a meal in the Quayside Cabin. But book before you leave home as its gets heavy booked up Food is amazing, relaxed atmostphere and great service with a smile. Already planning a return meal in January - probably lunch but will book before we leave the uk

Coming from Cape Town I find it an absolute treat to go to Quayside Cabin for their spectacular quality of seafood. They have a serious decision-making variety on the menu; it is mind blowing. The Prawn Tower is one of my favourites - I seriously get lost in the eating experience of mouth-watering flavours and the laid back, eccentric venue... More

Had lunch here while waiting to go out on a whale watching boat. My family aren't big fish eaters, but said the fish and chips was the best they have ever had. My husband had the Kabeljou, and wanted to know if there is any equivalent available in the UK (there isn't). I had the calamari, it was the best... More

Wonderful cozy restaurant. Excellent service, great menu. The Hot Pot was amazing with fresh Prawns and Mussels with Thai seasoning. Well priced and enjoyed our evening. Right at the dock.

My guesthouse owner recommended this restaurant and it exceeded all my expectations. I tried the oysters first and they were so sweet I could have eaten a dozen easily. I was a little surprised to see that on the menu, the only way to have mussels was with a thai sauce but when I explained that I love plain mussels,... More

One of the best seafood restaurants I have ever had the priveledge of going to! The food was really good (especially the Linefish Hermanus...a must have), the waiters were friendly and very helpful with recommendations on food choices, food was well portioned, decor is different and intriguing, the music was tranquil and the view of the ocean in the background...

The service, although efficient, was not friendly for a seaside resort. Ther food was not fresh, warmed up in Micro and when advising waitress, received a 'Sorry' reply. No real concern or interest.

Probably would appeal more to the younger set as seating rather uncomfortable. Helpings of fish were large but not outstandingly good.Oysters I had elsewhere in the Cape were more succulent and tasted fresher than those I had here.
