“Authentic cottage, great food, dedicated staff.”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

Don't miss this simple, small, but excellent place to taste the local catch. Very cozy with a fire going and the cottage felt very authentic. Great location right downtown by the water. Staff dedicated to making sure you have a great experience.

“Fantastic little place”
Reviewed January 16, 2011

We sayed in Hermanus for 3 nights and went to this restaurant every evening. The menu was simple but the food itself was some of the best we had in SA. The first night I had the fattest mussels cooked to perfection and went on to have the delicious Malay Lamb Curry and the yummy Bobotie, Erica and Anthony were great and service was attentive but relaxed. I would thoroughly reccommend this lovely place.

“Yummy local fish”
Reviewed December 7, 2010

We stayed in Hermanus for one night and wanted a restaurant serving local fish.

We were recommended the Fisherman's Cottage. Initially when we arrived they said they were fully booked but luckily for us they receive a cancellation whilst we waited in the cosy bar area.

The menu contained exactly what we wanted - fresh local fish. But as well as that there was a good range of meat on there too.

I enjoyed the hake and calamari special.

The wine selection available was good and the waitress was knowledgeable about the best ones to complement our dishes.

Excellent food and staff but book so you're not disappointed.

“Delicious seafood platter at a very reasonable price”
Reviewed October 17, 2010

A tiny restaurant serving much bigger meals! We had a gorgeous seafood platter here with prawns, calamari and yellowtail. It was huge and delicious. The menu was quite small, but there was something for everyone. The service was good, with no delay and a buzzing atmosphere. It was right in the centre of Hermanus, and had much more character than some of the places surrounding it.

“The Most Character in Hermanus”
Reviewed October 4, 2010

An old established 'pub' with a cosy little bar, and an eating area outside (covered in inclement weather) - excellent down to earth food incl fantastic sea-food at very fair prices - book ahead it's quite small. Wine choice not great but you can always BYOB
