The food is always good at this establishment. We sat at a little window overlooking the sea and the moon was rising - quite romantic..

We were looking for sushi for lunch and stumbled across Lemon Butta - so glad that we did! The sushi was excellent, service great - I think a return visit may be on the cards next time we are in Hermanus!

We do not often eat out and when we do, we look for good value for money. Friends had recommended the Winter Special menu at LB and as we do not often have a steak out as they are very expensive, the idea of a 200g Rump with potato wedges plus a glass of wine included for R100, suited our... More

Popped in for lunch at 1200. We were given a table which had been booked for 1400. No trouble. We should be finished by then? Only just. We had main and pudding but the service was so slow we just made it out on time.

Here with a group of friends touring South Africa. We all enjoyed our meals very much. The tempura prawns were my favorite. Could have made a meal out of them, not just an appetizer. For a main I had the Flame Grilled Rump Steak and for dessert the Kailua Creme Brûlée. The dessert was a little different with the dates... More

Our dinner was very good; however, the recommendations on some cocktails were off. No comparison to other restaurants in Hermanus

We were greeted by the friendliest staff and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. The Manager served us and his recommendations were en pointe. We could not have had better service and with the result we had a wonderful dining experience.
