I had the burger with a twist, and it was the best burger I had ever had in my life. The rest of the party's food was also excellent. Our waiter was a highlight of the evening. I recommend this restaurant to all and it is the best restaurant in Hermanus in my opinion. I will be back as soon... More

Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. The menu is contemporary and you are bound to find something to tickle your fancy. The inner courtyard is a hidden surprise as you cannot see it from outside as the restaurant is hidden in a larger building. Relaxed ambiance and tasty well presented freshly prepared food. I'm not usually one to order dessert but... More

This for me has to be one of the best restaurants. Food, service, value for money and ambience are fantastic. Personal service from the chef, friendly efficient staff makes this my favourite.

We decided last minute to dine here, and were very happy that they could accommodate us without a reservation. The chef came out to greet us and tell us about the specials, and the waiters delivered friendly, efficient service without being in the way. We enjoyed out dinner and will return next time we're in town.

We have been up and down Hermanus visiting restaurant, after restaurant. "We" 3 people have chosen EAT as THE restaurant. Just returned from EAT yet again before we decided. The best food, excellent service , great selection of wine, a decadent menu and food at it's best.

We booked at EAT ahead of time based on the many good reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The calamari was tender and delicious. My fillet was perfectly aged and prepared with a goats cheese, marrow and truffle oil topping which was superb. The service was friendly and engaging. Two thumbs up.

Friendly service and a great meal - thank you! We were there out of season and it was quiet at first then quite a few regular locals coming in. Obviously a popular choice!

We were a bit scared walking in, but it turned out to be quite nice. That’s really a great thing that makes me very happy, when my expectations are kind of low to begin with and I get surprised in a positive sense. I really don’t want to step on any toes here, but the restaurant seemed very hillbilly and... More
