Nice

We had dinner here our first night in Hermanus because it was close. The food was fine and the service was good. We had fish and chips with hake and calamari. The calamari was wonderful! It was so tender and tasty!

Myself and my beloved eat here regularly. In our opinion the best restaurant in hermanus. The service is impeccable. Our waiter Andrew was very informative, courteous and accommodating.The food did not take long to arrive, and when it came was cooked to perfection. You could not fault it. The chef even came out to chat with us and see if... More

Had to wait a long time for drinks, and service overall is quite poor. Seemed quite disorganized. Asked for our left over food to be packed for take away and even this took long. On a pleasant note, the sweet potato soup I ordered from the starter section is highly recommend, it was delicious. This place could be a whole... More

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. We had taken a bottle of Eagles Nest Merlot,... 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
