“Good food, great setting, good service !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Strolling through the Promenade in the Village of Hermanus can leave one quite pekish at around lunchtime on a sunny Saturday ! Choosing the right restaurant on the square is difficult because of the variety, however, the friendly staff at Fusion lured us in and we soon found ourselves sipping crisp dry white whilst browsing through the interesting menu. A huge variety of dishes at a very reasonable price. Setting is great, owner involved in customer satisfaction and overall a 5 star experience !! We will undoubtedly be back. Thanks guys !

“Average - I can't really recommend it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

I feel bad to leave a negative review but I just can't recommend this restaurant. It was average.

We ended up here because Burgundy was full. It looked a bit busy and figured it should be fine. It was fine but just nothing special. Service was fantastic but food was a bit of a let down.

I had the mussels which were over cooked because they were all shriveled up despite being big shells. It looks like they were steamed and then an overly creamy, sauce just dumped on top which was too thick. My friend had the stack of pumpkin and haloumi which was just really sticky and sweet and just too heavy in the mouth - almost like a pumpkin pie. Mains were just average.

I felt that the chef was putting in too much effort on trying to be creative when just sticking to some basics would have been just fine. Good ingredients speak for themselves without over decoration of plates and other distractions.

I definitely preferred Burgundy next store. I hope this criticism can be taken constructively. Good point was location, scene and service.

“Forgot to book”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

On a Sunday evening when all the main tourist restaurants were fully booked we managed to get a table here. We were not disappointed as the innovative food was delicious. I particularly recommend the pumpkin starter. The staff were good fun and the owner/chef came to say hello.
Fantastic view of the harbour and the whales in the early evening.
We were lucky to get a table as the restaurent quickly filled up. A great eating experience and would certainly eat there again.

“Great place, great food, great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The Fusion Cafe was a good choice we made at Hermanus. The food was pretty good, and the staff was very kind. Nice place to be drinking a white wine, watching the sunset. They provided us some blankets because it was a cold night.
