“Feeling@home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Savannah Cafe is centrally located, we could walk everywhere from there, as we were enjoying lunch and a glass of local wine- we surprisingly had a view of the ocean...what a lovely surprise.

Food overall very fresh, the wraps were completely full of fresh salad and the salmon wrap was delicious! French fries were lovely, defenately prepared with passion. We found the service excellent. As we were visiting for a couple of days the waiters started remembering what we like and received personal attention. My favourites: eggs bennedict,salmon wrap and the lamb ribs!

“Excellent food & excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Savannah has changed to one of the most popular restaurants in Hermanus. After numerious good reviews from our guests at our guesthouse, we had to investigate ourselves. We went for supper with our Austrian friends, whom was eating there daily during their 2 week visit. I must admit that Rudolph has turned this venue into one of the most popular ones with good food, good service & professionalism.

“A revelation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Third choice (one & two were fully booked) but a very happy choice. In a classic Cape Dutch building right in the heart of Hermanus and with quality cooking and service at a good price, this place has to be on your shortlist.

“Best apple crumble ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I recently visited Savannah Cafe while on holiday in Hermanus and what a pleasant surprise! The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and there seems to be a permanent buzz with regulars popping in - I could see they were locals as many seemed to know each other, (no better testimonial for a restaurant than locals frequenting it!)The service was friendly and efficient and the apple crumble to die for. And then there is their divine cappucchino barista Timmy has perfected to an art. I shall definitely return for more of chef Rudolf and his team's tasty looking creations.

Savanna Cafe serves the best Eggs Benedict in town! Chef and owner, Rudolph's personal recipe's will have you taste buds asking for more! Now open for dinner as well and really worth a visit. Food is very tastefully done and Rudolph's personal hand is always ready to please and serve. Congratulations, Rudolph and staff for bringing this restaurant to its full potential.
