Excellent steaks

We visited this restaurant and shortly after we arrived the power went off. No problem, the generator was switched on and normal service resumed. We visited with a chum and ordered steaks which were large, succulent and cooked to perfection. We didn't sample the wine but the wine list looked good... read more

Loved the steak with crackling twirls so much I tend to order it every time. Over the last two years we dined their often. The chicken livers with the (Fusion) sauce are the best I have ever eaten. Not on menu just ask. Spareribs are good. The turkish style pizza's are great. The waffle and kahlua sauce, mouthwatering. Menu also... More

It was the best great value for money in Town and the food produced by the previous Chef/Owner was exceptionnally good and consistant. Not an enormous choice but only high quality. The new management team is hardly seen and never greets its regular customers and the Chef is never seen in the restaurant. Besides the waiters team has almost completely... More

We visit Hermanus maybe once a year, sometimes more. Every time we visit this restaurant we always have a great experience. The menu is excellent with a great choice without being overwhelming. There is something for everyone. Our server Dwayne was excellent adding to the overall experience. Highly recommend. The best meal we had in Hermanus!

Having been turned away by a number of restaurants in the valley who despite having empty tables were "fully booked" we were starting to think we would not be eating lunch. Then we walked in Eat and it was practically empty. Not a good sign but by this point we just wanted food. The waitress arrived and was lovely and... More

So disappointed - booked a week before for Xmas lunch, was told they still had space and I would get mail with the menu, invoice and banking details if I wanted to pay in advance. When I called today to confirm our booking, was told that as they hadn't heard from me, the restaurant was full. And that was the... More

Hello Jenny. I'm sorry that we couldn't accommodate you for Christmas, but unfortunately we were fully booked. When you phoned on the 18th of December to ask whether we still had space for Christmas, our head waiter, Darren, told you (as we told all people who enquired) that we were working on a voucher system and that the price was...
