“New chef and owner adds Flavour and Taste!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Savanna Cafe serves the best Eggs Benedict in town! Chef and owner, Rudolph's personal recipe's will have you taste buds asking for more! Now open for dinner as well and really worth a visit. Food is very tastefully done and Rudolph's personal hand is always ready to please and serve. Congratulations, Rudolph and staff for bringing this restaurant to its full potential.

“Great burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Popped in here for a quick lunch. It turned out to be a very long one with great food and good wine. Locally owned and professionally managed by the owner - who is there welcoming you - this restaurant is worth a visit. We stuck to burgers because the ones coming out looked so decadent! Will go back next time for some serious food!

“A VERY FRIENDLY RENDEZ-VOUS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Savannah is an old established restaurant but since Rudolph, who is the charming young professional chef and owner, who took over a few months ago, it is a pleasure to be able to recommend it so highly. Woolworths have just opened a new store immediately opposite the Savannah and the development is most attractive with colonnades, shops, and a delightful bustling square where mature trees have been planted and there are views of the sea. It is also sheltered from the wind and one can sit outside in comfort. Rudolph is most attentive without being obtrusive and he enjoys discussing food with customers. He is always happy to pass on useful tips. The cost, compared with many other establishments, is very competitive. Everything is prepared for the customer and he refuses to pre-cook food which seems to be the norm. The coffee is probably the best in Hermanus. We live in Hermanus and this is our favourite rendez-vous.

“Some good, some not so good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Good:
-Friendly welcome
-Nicely decorated
-Service at the start of the evening
-Main course

Not so good:
-Service becoming more and more slow during the evening inspite of the the place not being full. We had to wait a very long time before we could order dessert. Staff seemed to just hang around.

“Disappointing lunch”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Perhaps it was because of the festive season but firstly they got my order wrong so my partner had to eat while I waited for my food and the chips were awful (I think the oil had been used too long) as they were dark brown.
