“Excellent little place, but not cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We've always had excellent meal and service in this casual little restaurant but its not cheap and our last meal there was not as good as the meals before it.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Next time you're in Hermanus make sure you have at least one meal at this great restaurant. Proof that dynamite comes in small packages! Fabulous menu full of fresh seafood options at reasonable prices. Exceptional service.

“Nothing special except the quaint location!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

The food was pretty average to be honest, but it's set down at the quayside in a working harbour, so it's got a nice little vibe going on.

“Basic, but very good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We were recommended this place by the owner of the guest house (les Baleines) we were staying at and we weren't disappointed! The service was friendly and the food was delicious. If fresh seafood and unpretentious surroundings are what you like, then this is definitely the right choice.

“Absolutely FANTASTIC!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

While in Hermanus for a quick pit stop on Sunday lunch time, locals recommended Quayside Cabin for best seafood in town. Well we were not disappointed. A bit skeptic at first but decided to give it a try anyway.

i had the peri-peri prawn tower and its a must if you enjoy a nice hot tower stacked with large prawns, my husband had line fish that was cob grilled to perfection, needles to say absolutely fresh as you can get!!

The service was brilliant with two ladies running the show, in fact i was under the impression they owned it... but our waitress informed us that they more like family and has been working there for 10 years!! That has to say something, well done girls!!

What a lovely day you gave us thank you so much, if only there were more little gems like you.
