I visited this restaurant with its idylic setting, but what a dissapointment, no service. After waiting for half an hour and being ignored by the waitresses, there was no alternative but to get up and leave. Not one word being spoken to me.

The Bistro Just Pure is a very charming café/bistro with a small nice shop in the back.
We had diner here, and the diner menu offered a choice of 4 starters, 4 main courses and 3 deserts. The menu is based on what is seasonal and available.
Quality and taste of the food are simply delicious; you can taste the fresh ingredients that are used.
The wine list offers good wines from local wine estates.

Prices are very reasonable.
Service is very friendly and efficient. Ambience is very cosy.

Had lunch with the family on my last day in South Africa... the bistro at Just Pure is a fairly simple affair where they seem to focus on quality ingredients. For a small place the menue is extensive. Breakfasts are very good, but the lunch menu is where they excel. Most of our party had the venison burger - perfectly cooked and served with rustic fries and a great chilli relish. Service was laid back but certainly nothing to complain about. All in this is one of the best places to eat in Hermanus. Small, great quality - and a fantastic terrace to enjoy the finest view in SA.

I went there for a morning muffin and coffee, nobody was there to seat me, waited long for service and the table next to me was also unhappy because of the way they were handled. But nice view!
