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

A no frills bakery with mismatched tables and chairs. Their breakfasts are great and their freshly baked breads wonderful. The service is very good. Eat is in an alley mid town - no view but people watching you can do from the big open windows. Extensive menu.

'Eat' is always on our list of places to eat when we visit Hermanus. Great food in a relaxed atmosphere. A good, varied menu with something for everyone...the blue cheese and pear salad starter was superb, followed by the 'Owner's special' of 600g ribs + drink which was equally good!

We called in here just for drinks and ended up staying for an really great meal. Starting with a simple but excellent garlic bread, followed by lamb steak and a fillet steak. Both cooked to perfection - simple but excellent food is always a winner for me. The wine was great, the service really good. Can't say enough positives.

Great decor makes you feel right at home from the moment you step foot into the dining area. Inside or out, your choice! Meals are made to perfection and with great care on presentation. Tastes are both flavorful and fresh. Service was excellent!

Great lunch with the family including a toddler who was thoroughly entertained by the staff. Delicious food - highly recommend the pizzas which were crisp and tasty

We frequent the restaurant a lot and every time we go back there, it never fails to amaze. The food is well prepared, tasty and just downright fantastic. The waiters and staff delivers world class service. Everyone knows exactly what they are doing and so far, not a single thing went wrong. Best value for money in Hermanus.
