The service, although efficient, was not friendly for a seaside resort.
Ther food was not fresh, warmed up in Micro and when advising waitress, received a 'Sorry' reply. No real concern or interest.

Probably would appeal more to the younger set as seating rather uncomfortable. Helpings of fish were large but not outstandingly good.Oysters I had elsewhere in the Cape were more succulent and tasted fresher than those I had here.

Expectations of fresh fish were not met. The linefish of the day was indifferent and the calamari had a greasy batter. The kitchen staff were standing around doing nothing. Waiting staff were fine and willingly removed an overcharged item from the bill.
Bayside cafe/restaurants are often great unpretentious places to eat but this was not.

Everytime we come to Hermanus, Quayside Cabin is at the TOP of our MUST-DO list.

The food is amazing. You place your order and while you sitting waiting for your food, you have the view of the New Harbour, occassionally seeing a whale and little seals, while you eating lunch. What more could you ask for. Even just waiting for the food you sit with your mouth watering from the aromas from the preperation of your food. Once you get your food its like the whole world stops around you. The food is is definatly worth the money you pay, the prices are reasonable (I would even pay more), the service is good and the atmosphere is layed back and very chilled.

If you are in Hermanus, I would definatly reccommend that you try this little cabin down by the slipway. Its an experience of a lifetime.
