As a local I visit Savannah often. They have a fireplace inside on cold days and lovely outside seating area in summer. Staff go out of their way to accommodate requests. Great food, decently priced.

Being a local in Hermanus and having waitressed at Savannah a few years ago, to enjoy a sunny afternoon me and my two friends walked into Savannah excited to fill our tummies. To our disappointment all we ended up doing was emptying our wallets... For the price of the food the quality was pathetic. My one friend ordered a chicken... More

Firstly, your table insinuated to the chef that something was wrong with the food and he informed you how we prepare it. When he informed me about it, we tested the food in the kitchen and unanimously came to the conclusion that nothing was wrong with it. When I arrived at your table and explained that we prepare the food... More

My friends and I had lunch here today. Not only was the food almost inedible, with what tasted like off chicken and off feta, the owner was unbelievably rude to us just because we were young. The management was so unprofessional and uncaring. I will be sure to never eat here again.

I absolutely love their iced coffee! I can never go there and not order it. Best in town and is reasonably priced

Really cosy restaurant in Hermanus that offers a lot. Close to the shops and this makes the spot so ideal. We had some good coffee with chicken and butternut raps which was absolutely delicious. Bit pricey, but top quality. Easy parking at checkers under roof , free if you stay less than 2 hours.

We had their Sunday Lunch today and was pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed the great home cooked meal and the dessert for a great price of R110 per person. We had lamb, chicken, rice, roast potatoes, green beans and pumpkin fritters with peppers... the Crêpes Suzette were devine... I will drive to Hermanus again for this meal... go and spoil yourself

I love the fact that the breakfasts are so different. There are not many places that serve sardines on toast for breakfast! DELICIOUS if, like me you love sardines for breakfast. The Frittata is also out of this world! We visit Hermanus monthly and eat breakfast at different establishments but this is one of our favourite breakfast spots. We love... More

We were well treated by all and the Manager/Owner roams the place and checking if customers are ok. The service is good and excellent value for money

We're in Hermanus on business and needed a quick supper and something cool for the heat. Savannah delivered both: and in good time too. The food was well prepared and the cider cold. Service was very friendly and prompt. Will go again.
