While the decor of this restaurant and, frankly, its name did not hint at a great experience, we certainly had one. Both our hotel and the wine store around the corner recommended that we come here. I can't remember what we had, except for dessert, but it was so good that the wait person brought the chef out to speak... More

I have never even had an average meal here. The waiters are good and the owner is always present and a very good chef and always happy to have a chat with guests. Worth a visit without question.

A true gem of a restaurant in#sandbaai #hermanus, which lives up to its name .... EAT, and that we did do so well. A repeat visit by us, and not disappointed! I enjoyed the delicious Pork Belly with vegetables, well presented, tasty and just the right portion size. Charlise enjoyed the 4 cheese delish pizza, goats cheese is divine. Wayne... More

Hermanus has many good restaurants - ome on the foreshore and others spread over town. The Hemel and Aarde Village situated at the entrance to the Hemel en Aarde valley, renowned for its Pinot Noir, also features a few restaurants. Probably the best among them is Eat presenting a good menu and variety of local wines and beers. We had... More

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
