An impromptu visit to this little gem at the new harbour, produced a really tasty meal. A vast stack of calamari and fries for the boys, and the calamari mussels combo for me, was excellent. It is very eclectic, but clean and welcoming. The value is very good, and we will be back soon. Would love to try one of... More

We simply could not get out of this place. We were the last to leave. The staff were very accommodating. Food was fantastic. Recommend them any day.

We went for lunch with the family which included our Namibian family. It was pouring with rain. The service was excellent. The food great. Some of us had the hotpot. It was awesome. The atmosphere cozy. Definitely a great place to visit when in Hermanus.

The best mussels and calamari I have eaten in a very long time, the place is small but busy. There is a loo just outside across the road very clean. Definitely a family vibe

A disappointment after expecting something really tasty. We had the mussels and they really were not great. So small and very little flavour. Apparently came with capers. ..which we didnt see!. The calamari was however very good.

This place looks so inviting but I was very disappointed with my dining experience. Firstly, the waitress was very unfriendly and it took forever to get her attention to request the bill as she was busy talking to diners. Perhaps these diners were regular and she wanted to keep their custom, she certainly wasn't interested in new customers. Sadly, the... More

Had a fabulous family dinner here. Platters are huge and affordable and most importantly delicious! The small cabin's atmosphere is fabulous, cozy and welcoming. Perfect for a family get together or a romantic dinner. Yum!

We were recommended to go here by a tour guide and so pleased we took his advice. We arrived just as the main crowd were finishing Sunday lunch so got in easily but had we been half an hour earlier we would have gone hungry. I ordered a duo comprising a half line fish (cape salmon) portion and half calamari.... More
