The Cuckoo Tree is a lovely little restaurant in Hermanus and whenever we have the opportunity, we stop there hoping for a free table as they're very popular. The restaurant is hidden away, perhaps a block or two from the main tourist restaurant area but this only adds to its charm. The food is wonderfully presented, very tasty, fairly priced and the menu options are creative - definitely not your run-of-the-mill type of menu. You have the option of sitting inside or outside in the tiny little garden setting, fenced in from the notorious Cape wind. The owners and staff are absolutely what make this place so wonderful. They are warm, friendly, attentive and you are treated as a friend. They noticed me taking photographs of the birds eating from the birdfeeder and without a word one of them brought a little bowl of grated cheese and put it next to our table to attract the birds closer to where we were sitting. They did everything to make us comfortable and have a good time without being pesky or lingering too long. This team has a recipe that works! In short, a very happy little place which I can highly recommend.
