“Best sushi in Hermanus. By far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

Recently found Lemon Butta as Im living in Hermanus temporarily.
During the winter they have specials most night of the week. The place is packed.
Sushi here is excellent. Fresh, good sushi portions. The salmon and tuna of the best quality.
The waiters are also excellent.
Good wine range as well but you can BYOB as well.

“Great choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

Nice view on the bay and huge menu. Efficient service. Decoration is a bit down. We were very happy with our sushis, seafood platters and matching wines. A perfect choice if it is too cold to stay on Burgundy's terrace.

“Bestest of views delectable sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

We have frequented this restaurant so many times it is too much to keep count. The sushi is really really good, clean crisp and craving for more stuff! the view of the bay with Southern Right Whales and dolphins are unsurpassed. The owner is a hunk (for the ladies) and quite visible. A visit to Hermanus should not go without dining your favourite seafood dish at Lemon Butta. Thanks Paul!

“nice view, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

when rating food in South Africa the curve shoots up. Grading on a scale id say its average with a modest looking decor but a spectacular view. i was told they serve the best fish in town and that they are consistent in their quality of food. Again i say they were good not more.
