Very informal dining and a very limited menu. But none the worse for that - and the best fish and calamari I ate during my trip. Excellent service and very reasonably priced. Well recommended

We had a wonderful meal here with the freshest fish we have ever eaten. Food was all excellent, the wine was good and the ambience was homely and comfortable.

We were in Hermanus for 4 nights, and ate here 3 times. The seafood platter was exceptional value....3 large prawns, squid, linefish of the day, plus rice, chips and salad.
This was washed down with the help of the house white.
We had good times here with all of the staff, all of whom are very engaging.
A big thank you to the chef for that dessert recipe. Yum!

This is a tiny place, with toilets in the hotel across the square. However the food was great (from a limited menu) and service very friendly.

Sit back relax and enjoy the best freshest seafood prepared and delivered with a smile.

The cottage is perfect for a lazy lunch , you are greeted with a freindly SA welcome and the food just adds to compliment the occasion.
You cannot fault thsi place at all.
Would recommend to everyone .
