Description: Situated in the picturesque seaside town of Hermanus, Paradiso is set aside from others by its welcoming feel. The restaurant is located in a fisherman's cottage overlooking the renowned whale-watching haven of Walker Bay. Complete with sandstone walls and wooden floors Paradiso oozes character around every corner. The restaurant boasts an outside seating area which provides for great al fresco dining on those balmy summer evenings. Paradiso offers a wide range of seafood, steak, lamb chops, pasta, salads and is famous for its thin-based pizzas fresh from the wood-fired pizza oven.

We had dinner at Paradiso near the old harbour in Hermanus and were disappointed to find that our once favourite restaurant now offers food of below average standard. This restaurant that used to be called "the best kept secret in Hermanus" can now be described as a huge disappointment. The kingklip main was suffering from the effects of having been frozen and the steak was tasteless. (Unfortunately there was also no linefish on offer). They used to offer the best Irish coffee in town, but now would not even pass the test on that front.

We decided on this place at the last minute. It was busy, but they were very welcoming & accommodating. They even offered to call another restaurant to cancel our existing reservation. Food was delicious! We had a pesto focaccia & grilled calamari as an appetizer. Focaccia is more of a very thin pizza. It was pretty big & enough for the two of us to share. We decided to split a lasagna which was hardy & perfect for the cold evening.

We went to this restaurant for an early dinner and enjoyed pizzas which were perfectly prepared and delicious. We sat inside where we could see the pizza oven and the restaurant felt very rustic and homely. The restaurant was moderately full but the service was courteous, prompt and efficient. Great pizzeria!

Fantastic pizzeria, with lovely ambience. Several vegetarian options on the menu. We were fortunate that it wasn't full but in whale season, I imagine it can get crowded so I would suggest booking
