“Excellent food”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We had the seafood soup to start which was delicious and almost like a main course. The kingklip main was perfect. The service and wine were very good.

“Fine Fish”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We recently visited the Fishermans Cottage in Hermanus, and had a wonderful evening meal in the cosy restaurant, the log fire was on ! and was needed.
The place is small, not posh but the food is great and so was the service. The line fish of the day was marvellous as were the Black Mussels.

“Better than average...but”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Some restaurants are much harder to review than others...like this one. How to compare a restaurant that provides a dining experience with one that provides good food at a good price in simple surroundings. Which is Fisherman's cottage........a place to go for a good meal but with basic and rustic fittings. Our meals were both well prepared, the service attentive and the wine selection adequate and reasonable. All in all it was a good meal and would probably be a great option for a family or group out for drinks and a bite. But it was not ideal for a couple looking to linger over a nice dinner. So, I feel average is not a good descriptor and very good is misleading ...I would fudge and give them a three and a half. Certainly good value.

“Good seafood at reasonable prices”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We had a good meal at this restaurant, seafood platter for two which included kingclip, tiger prawns and calamari. The service was good and the waiter was interested enough to engage us in conversation. The wine on offer was good local wine at a reasonable price. All-in-all it was a good experience.
