“Awesomeness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

What a great little restaurant. A must on your to do list if you are in Hermanus. Small and intimate with a focus on seafood but also meat for the carnivores. Selection of local wines and a chef that leaves his kitchen to say hi to every dinner

“Great value, tasty and good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

We happened upon this restaurant by accident wandering through the square and were pleased we stopped for lunch. We had great value fish and chips, served by a very friendly waiter who was interested in our trip and gave good attentive service. The fish was lovely and fresh and had the perfect batter - not too heavy and not to soggy - which is not often found!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

On a cold, wet night this place was so welcoming. The food, drink and service were of a very high quality and my wife and I had a wonderful time. Try the seafood platter for two as it is to die for.

“Welcoming fire”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

The evening was cold and wet but the welcome at Fisherman's Cottage was as warm as the fire they had. The food was very good and we would definitely go there again.
