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

Wow, if you are in this area and you don't eat here, you are missing a superb meal, of the best sea food and probably everything else, we were lucky to get a cancelled table at the last minute, the sea food platter was superb, great food, excellent service, A big thank you to Niel.

We spent yesterday morning doing the lovely walk from the Old to the New Harbour at Hermanus, it was a lovely, warm day but with a refreshing breeze. We were hungry and stumbled upon the Keyside Cabin, not knowing what to expect. Niel was very welcoming and we sat down and ordered some white wine, (from a local winery, which... More
