We had fresh kabeljou that was very tasty! Friendly service, and nice atmosphere! We also had a chat to the chef, who recommended some dishes. Pleasant after-noon lunch!

If you are looking for the best calamari and prawns in Hermanus then pop in to Fishermans Cottage for a cold beer and great atmosphere and food! The Surf and Turf is fantastic! We can't wait to go back to try more things from the menu.

During our 2010 visit we really enjoyed this restaurant. Now that it has new owners it is still very good and is often fully booked. However it has lost its character and charm: it seems there is an effort to turn it into "yet another modern restaurant" complete with annoying bland "boyband" music blaring to ensure lack of convetsation. However food is still great and its nice to have a pootch laying on her pillow nearby (like at home). We'll try it again in a few yrs when we visit sa again - but not during this visit :)

Food was good. Enjoyed the fishsoup starter, as well as the calamari starter. Linefish mains also recommended.
Curious situation that on booking we were asked at which guesthouse we were staying. Seeing that we are locals, we were also surprised to be asked on leaving the restaurant where we were heading the next day. It seems as if they are exclusively catering for overseas visitors. We had to wait a long time to finalise our payment and overall the service needs to be upgraded. The waiter that served us lacked training and finesse to deal with customers.
The competition is stiff in Hermanus and if you want to survive the quiet months, you should look after the local patrons and provide the whole package: good food and good service.
