I love Harbour rock! On a good day, to sit outside (be sure to book) in the new harbour over looking the sea, is just wonderful. The staff and service a very good and the food surprisingly follows suit. The last time I was here, I ordered prawns but didn't have high hopes ( as I often find them disappointing... More

Excellent views before the sunset. Staff were very professional and service was great. Seafood platter was 5star and my Cosmopolitan drink, was the best I had this year.

Had the seafood chowder for lunch and was not impressed. We did see whales in the distance which compensated a bit. We returned that evening mainly to try the abalone. You need a special licence in South Africa to serve it. This was my first time trying abalone. I was not impresed by this shellfish and really failed to see... More

Had a great meal in here. The fish was cooked to perfection, and all the courses were very good. Our waitress was superb and was extremely attentive . I don't think we have ever had better service.

Spent a most memorable evening at this restaurant on the past Saturday 08/11/2014. Our choice of food was great, which we both had kabeljou. My wife opted for fish instead of the steak and was most pleasantly surprised. The view and our seating was spectacular – thank you - and a BIG thanks to Angel for above par service delivery....

We were staying only a 10 minute walk away so it made sense to eat here on the first night. Brilliant views until the sun goes down. Nice atmosphere in the place. Nice food. Rather expensive. Service indeed patchy but why does the waiting staff have to go through the menu for 15 minutes like it is some act? And... More

The views and setting offer great potential. The staff are attentive and keen. The meal itself was average and indeed my partner, normally a very robust constitution, suffered an adverse reaction to the kingklip four hours later. I had kabeljou which was fine. Summary statement is that there is better food in Hermanus, but not many with this view.

Reading the latest reviews on trip adviser it sounded like the restaurant was a hit and miss. We came early shortly after six and were one of the first guests. The view and atmosphere id nice and the main menu is mainly Sushi, while they offer a daily fresh menu as well. The food was good, nothing out of the... More

We wanted to go to a place where we could see sea and sunset (and we saw some whales!). Typical northern province from us... I had the prawns and friends the seafood platter - delicious! A great wine list as well. Loved the Miss Molly Bubbly! Will definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Hermanus.
