Good food, great atmosphere!

Varied menu encapsulating traditional and more moden dishes. Something for everyone. Nice decor both inside and out. Excellent service. I was wearing shorts and got the impression this was not appropriate - although nothing was said.

Met friends for a meal on a Monday evening and the place was packed. You will understand why when you taste their food,it's great! Situated in the main high street adjoining local commercial units so at first a bit off putting but they have created a nice garden area and tastefully decorated and laid out restaurant area. Great value,nice staff... More

A corner restaurant just on the edge of the CBD, offering good quality standard fare. Good service, nice wine list. Often winter specials including food and wine. I've never been disappointed. Small and intimate. Taking small kids there would be tricky. Good mid range spot for an evening out with the wife.

we ate at Henri's on the advice of our landlady and were very pleased we did. The food was plentiful and very tasty,and the service friendly and helpful. Henri's is one of the few restaurants that has its own generator so the evening was unaffected by the power outage. We highly recommend it.

While on holiday at Lord Charles Hotel i was recommended by staff there to try this restaurant for dinner. The venue decor was very tasteful and everything was pristine and clean. The meal was exceptional and the waitress was a delight. I would suggest to anyone visiting the area to seek out this gem. i would love to return!

We recently moved down to Hermanus from Gauteng and were told about Henri's. Decided to try it last Saturday for lunch. Plenty of parking behind the restaurant. We were met at the gate by the owner and as it was a good day we opted to sit in the garden rather than on the verandah or in the house. We... More

Food well prepared, service attentive, well priced. After initial resistance when it opened, due to friends' luke-warm reviews, I find it has upped its game and now delivers well.
