We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of the place we stayed at in Hermanus, we didn't book and chose to sit at the Sushi Bar instead of a table as they were all full and we didn't want to wait.

We had an excellent meal, great food, fantastic location and view, very fair value for money, very slightly marred by service which got slower as the evening progressed, culminating in an incorrect bill.

The Tuna here is amazing. Calamari starters were slightly over cooked but still tasty. The wine selection also features some stunners from local vineyards. Will return.

Extensive menu & wines. Had the tuna & a Dom Pedro. Both were great & the staff efficient & friendly. Four of us ate here, 2 courses with wine & bottled water for £75 That can't be bad.

This is a large restaurant with sea views on the 2nd floor of a shopping centre....it was lively, loud and clearly very popular...food was good in a basic no frills kind of a way and served promptly and cheerfully...only draw back was that you could hardly have a conversation with your partner.. ....Yes...OH....what did you say?...What??

A butternut salad with 5 pieces of butternut and a bowl of spinach, and then 50 bucks for a rock shandy. Not impressed. Good service and good view that's about it.

Not as good or as atmospheric as dutchies beach side place down the road but not bad. As with most South African restaurants the food is quite inexpensive. Reasonable quality. Wouldn't be rushing back though. Service a bit slow.
