“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

The sea food platter is to die for, the calamari tender (which isn't always the case elsewhere) and the front of house staff above average. We wished we had found the place earlier, but it is tucked away behind other restaurants and probably gets missed, which is a shame. Other restuarants on the front get the immediate attention, when people should look a little further back and will find a little gem. Maybe the owners need to put their minds to drawing people in from the front somehow. We would recommend it to anyone.

“A great evening”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We dined here on our first night in Hermanus. We shared a delicious salad Nicoise as a starter & Mel had hake & I dined on delicious cabailou. The latter was much preferred.

We brought our own bottle of superb Thelema Merlot (no corkage) & finished by sharing a yummy malva pudding.

Service throughout was swift & friendly, a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

“Best Fish soup I've ever had!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

This place has ruined fish soup for me forever as I don't think anything I've ever had in France could live up to this! For main we had the biggest platter of seafood too, but finished everything as it was so good. Great relaxed vibe, excellent suggestions on wine and really friendly service.
