With many wine estate restaurants closed during July for the winter recess, we consulted Trip Advisor to find a place for Sunday lunch nearby. Henri's came up and we decided to have lunch there. Being our first visit, we were not sure what to expect. As it was very nice weather we decided to sit inside rather than outside. The... More

if you find yourself not being sure , you can always depend on a great meal at Henri's. I have never been disappointed. be sure to reserve a table over the weekends. it can get a little noisy inside , but weather permitting, a table outside is great

Very helpful and nice staff. Great steaks and variety of drinks. Nice setting, well located near to a main road and hotels. Atmosphere was nice in the evening but can be improved. I think this is a family owned restaurant which has he attention of the owner. Really kind people. Nice starters. Good selection of wines. I think wine was... More

Henri's, in spite of being situated on a busy corner, is surprisingly peaceful once inside. The service was good and the food well presented and tasty.

We have been long time visitors of Henri's over the years, celebrating many birthdays and anniversaries. And honestly we have always enjoyed our visits. There is often trepidation when a new owner takes over but we have enjoyed the same exceptional quality and warmness as we always have. We had a delicious Father's Day lunch - 2 orders of kingklip,... More

Always a good experience. Staff are friendly and on top of things. The food is never bad, but in our experience it is not excellent either. Overall, a very nice place for couples or family dinners.

We had a terrible experience at Henri's last night!! It all started off very well, the restaurant setting was beautiful, awesome atmosphere, our waitress was amazing (and remained so the whole night). I decided to go with the winter set menu and chose the liver parfait as a starter and my girlfriend decided against the set menu and went with... More

Last week on our way back from the airport travelling to Hermanus we stopped for lunch at Henri's which we do rather often. I had a delicious lamb shank , tasty falling off the bone & some unusual al dente vegetables. My partner had osso bucco which he said was absolutely delicious & cooked to perfection. The service is good... More
