I am not one for long winded reviews, but this is going to be one! This is simply the most undissapointing restaurant ive ever had the privilege to eat at! Jaylor 's masterful sushi delights are gastronomic wonders and the aesthetics are visually appealing too ... is it possible that these beautifully crafted bite sized Japanese wonders could taste as...

Thought we would try this as it rates well on Trip Advisor. Excellent fresh seafood and fish with great views and service. Wish I'd had the crayfish - they looked wonderful on the next table!

I recently ate at what, in my opinion, was probably the worse restaurant in the world. The place smelled of wrotten fish and the service was shocking. My food was undercooked, Raw and had the smell of wrot on it, and I had to wait extremely long for service and drinks. What an truly unforgettable evening. I never complain, I... More

Had traditional oysters to start, large, juicy and full of flavour. We both followed with traditional fish & chips, perfectly cooked and incredible value for money. Only downside was the waiters having a "little moment" among themselves.

Excellent service, good value and decent cooking made for a very pleasant evening.So good , we returned for a second (even better) evening. Bringing one's own good wines allows for good value. Tables a tight fit- but company affable and warm.

Recomended and reserved by our guest house we were disappointing'y seated at a table in the corridor next to the kitchen. With a rather unromantic lightning. That did not bode well. We requested and could be seated at a table in the noisy restaurant itself. Great choice of food and dinner. Although we did not order any sushis we could... More

Quite a busy restaurant in the center of Hermanus with sea view, specialized on sea food and sushi. Booking in advance is essential during holiday season. The seafood platter was delicious as well as the fillet steak. Unfortunately the side mash was burnt and replaced with another burnt one after our complaint, guess we just got another portion from the... More
