“Fabulous Seafood Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Away from the touristy downtown, the Harbour Rock is situated in Hermanus' working fishing harbor with extensive views over the ocean and harbour. At the recommendation of the Blue Gum Country Estate, we spent a wonderful December dinner there. In addition to regular fish dishes, the restaurant also includes a Thai menu. Service was excellent, as was the food, and the wine list is good and the wines affordable.

“Good fish restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Good food and a lovely view of the Harbour.
I thought the service could have been a bit better but raking account the time of year one can expect that.

“cancelled”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

On a friends recommendation, went into the restaurant 2 days in advance & made booking for special family occasion, chose specific table. Restaurant called day before & cancelled reservation because they apparently read their booking sheet wrong. Unprofessional.
