“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

It is hard to find a bad restaurant in the Western Cape, but this is one of them. The food is terrible, the staff dont seem to care.

Hermanus is a tourist place but still you should at least try to provide a decent service.

“The best pizza in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Intimate little pizzeria with a lovely view of the sea. The service and food is well above average. The decor nice and a great place for an evening out with friends. Their pizza's are cooked in a wood burning oven. Really nice little place.

“Great place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

In our view this is the best Italian restaurant in town. A great place to eat, drink, and enjoy the company of good friends. The food is delicious and reasonably priced and the staff friendly and helpful.

“Good food and welcoming staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We hadn't been to this restaurant for a while but returned with friends (party of 8) and had a really good meal with friendly service. There was a great variety on the menu and most of us chose different things...pizza, pasta, chicken, fish...everyone enjoyed the food. The chef came to the table to ask what we thought and to ask for any feedback, which was a nice touch. We took our own wine and corkage was reasonable - we didn't know that different rates are charged for wine from outside of the Overberg so others may want to buy and take local wines and save R10 per bottle! The food prices are reasonable given the seafront location.
