“Good food but snobby.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

The food was really good but I found the staff to be a bit rude. It took a very long time for the food to come as well and it is a bit expensive. I think that the staff at Lemon Butta had a bit of a snobby attitude compared to the many other places in Hermanus we ate, but, again the food was great.

Last night my family and I had dinner at Lemon Butta and what AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.We ordered sushi and were completely blown away.The salmon sashimi was the freshest I have ever tasted.I was overwhelmed by the flavours in the Japanese salmon salad a must try and the rock shrimp was absolute culinary genius !! The service from Patricia was fantastic and all in all one the best dinning experiences of all time .Thank you and congratulations on an awesome restaurant.
