The location where Riverside Grill is, has an unfortunate history with previous restaurants. Don't be put off by the connotation. This new restaurant is delightful and needs support...the owner has put his heart into it. Good food and good location.

The setting is beautiful, especially in summer when you can enjoy your lunch, dinner next to the stream with ducks and squirrels running around. Steak, chicken, fish you name it and it turns up done to perfection. Friendly , peaceful atmosphere.

Good food but very over priced! We paid R900 for two starters, mains, one desert and two coffees. We paid R550 for the same type of meal on the ocean side in Hermanus one night earlier. Definitely the last time we'll go there

Dear Daniel Thank you for taking the time to write a review about The Riverside Grill. I have reprinted your check to make sure if anything extra was added to your check, as it is highly impossible for two starters, two mains, one dessert and two coffes to amount to R900. What you failed to add was two bottles of... More

Great service , nice setting and atmosphere. I had a fillet steak with mc donalds style chips. Wife had ribs .... with mc donalds chips. Side onion rings order was average home cooking style. Side order pepper sauce was average . Good place to recomend to people who have more money than they know what to do with.

We ate here on a Sundays night at the recommendation of our guest house owners as many restaurants in the area are closed Sundays and the place we wanted to eat was fully booked. The food was spot on. I had mussels to start which were plump and succulent followed by fillet steak which was devine and cooked perfectly. We... More

What a disapointment! Have been before about 1 year ago and it was great. This time the food was awful and the menu completely over priced. The only compliment I can offer is the great service from the waiter. The chicken schnitzel was dreadful, it was burnt and the lamb shanks cold! The cost for 4 people without alcohol was... More
