“Horrible name,great restaurant!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

We dined here twice while visiting friends in Hermanus.The first time we went was because it was a Monday and all the other restaurants close by close on that day of the week.We enjoyed it so much we returned a second time.
The seafood risotto that I had on the first visit was probably the best I have ever had but all the food was outstanding.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient.We were also impressed with the chef coming from the kitchen to each table to enquire if everything had lived up to our expectations.
The Manageress was quietly efficient ensuring everything went smoothly.
We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Pleasant overall experience”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Two days ago we were referred to EAT in Hermanus. Were warmly welcomed by a staff member or two. I had a seafood risotto which was soooo nice. Finished it all which is rare for me comes to mains. John cannot remember what he had, but he can remember that it was good enough to finish the whole plate! The service was excellent and we will certainly go back again.

“Enjoyable evening with friends”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We went here with some friends who live in the area and eat here regularly. The restaurant has an attractive outdoor eating area but we were inside, it has a number of smaller rooms so feels intimate. Our friends took a bottle of red wine (common practice in S Africa even to a licensed restaurant).
Eat has a wide range of dishes including Thai curry and Moroccan lamb, which was delicious and made a change from fish. There was less choice for dessert, two of our group had deep fried ice cream balls which were rather odd and tasted as if they'd been fried in oil used for something else first! The mains were definitely better.
Altogether we had a good time and will return to Eat next time we are in the area.

“Yummy”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Lovely food and friendly service made this the 'cherry' on a day of sunshine, sea air and silky lagoon dipping at Grotto Beach. My seafood risotto was creamy and delicious. My husband's four cheese pizza was mouthwatering and utterly satisfying.
bravo EAT!
