Reviewed March 25, 2013

We had 2 wonderful meals at the Lemon Butta last week in Hermanus, Great see food and wine at a price to make you wonder how they do it, together with excellent service and a fantastic view over the bay. I can recommend not to miss the Lemon Butta when in the area.

“Everything Superb”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

My Wife and I went to the Lemon Butta in February and ,on arrival, found that we had no booking.
We had emailed our host in Hermanus before leaving the UK asking for a booking at the Restaurant with a specific request for a window seat as we ahd looked at previous reviews and learnt that they were the best tables.
We were unable to get a window seat as there was no trace of a booking and were shown another table which we accepted.

There-after we were really looked after especially by Angelique Olivier, the Assistant General Manager .She showed much concern over the mislaid booking and provided us with a bottle of wine as a gesture of goodwill.

This really turned out to be not necessary as the food and service were absolutey impeccable
and could not be faulted. The manner in which we were dealt with was of the utmost professionalism without being patronising and we left knowing that on our next trip to Hermanus the Lemon Butta will be our first call.

The food was very fresh and cooked to perfection as could be seen by our pristine clean plates.The choice was a difficulty since there were so many dishes that took our fancy but we shall overcome this with regular visits next time.

We shall also book direct by email from the UK to ensure that we do not have a mishap such as ours in February.

First class fish restaurant, with very good service. Highly recommended. Try and get a table by the windows as the views are lovely too.

“Good food and SERVICE!!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Wow!
What a great evening we had. Not only was the food excellent but the service probably the best I have experienced in South Africa. And this not just from our waiter, but all the staff. Thank you and well done. You have a great combo going!

“Another great meal”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Yet again - another enjoyable evening with good food at Lemon Butta last week. As a guest house owner it's important to have good restaurants to send our visitors to, and Lemon Butta never seems to disappoint. Our guests were very impressed a few days ago at how well looked after they were. Our guest was a little unwell with a cough and cold...and had a coughing fit...I don't know the waitress's name but apparently she was very kind and helpful...she made quite an impression, as our
guests who couldn't stop telling everyone the next day at breakfast about her experience.
