“Great brunch”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

After a disappointing morning where bad weather deprived us of our only opportunity to go shark diving we were somewhat despondent as we drove to Hermanus. Hungry and aimless we stopped on the spur of the moment at Lizette's. We were very pleasantly surprised with every aspect. Food, service, atmosphere were all excellent. The menu was reasonably broad for a brunch and all four in our group found something to their liking. Lizette's is not prentious but that's part of its charm. As long as you're fine with casual you're not likely to be disappointed.

“Warm atmosphere, amazing food!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Lizette's Kitchen was recommended to us by Yve at Yves Pudding and Pies and she was not wrong.

What a gorgeous restaurant, warm open fire with lounges, surrounded by cosy tables. It was very clearly a favourite with Hermanus locals.

Fantastic menu which made it hard to choose what to eat. So pleasing to also find such a great kids menu, finally food that the kids actually want to eat! My 7 and 9 year old were spoilt for choice. Even more amazing is that Lizette doesn't have kids!

We had the pork 3 ways and the red beef curry noodle bowl and both were outstanding. Lizette definitely has her Asian cuisine down to a fine art and knowing she lived in Vietnam lets you know this is how she has refined her flavours.

For families, couples or singles, this restaurant is a must visit.

“Excellent Vietnamese food!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We had a memorable meal here with friends. We opted for the Vietnamese food options which we all shared. We had 2 portions of soup which they split into 4 bowls before bringing to the table - very delicate and special flavors (lemon grass) . We followed with a ' Pork done 3 ways' dish and fried prawn dumplings with salad greens and dipping sauces. All were very tasty and beautifully presented. Tom, our waiter was attentive and helpful, the wine was perfect (a Rose called Bloos) for the meal and we ended with a variety of home made ice creams, brownies and chocolate hotspots. All excellent. Good coffee too. Our only complaint was the fire that smoked! Needs to be sorted out!
