Had a fantastic meal at La Pentola last week. The view was great - watched a whale breaching. Staff were friendly, service was great - & the butternut soup with lemon grass and basil was to die for.

Will definitely recommend.

Great menu and great service. We really enjoyed our meal. Great views out over walker bay. The atmosphere was really buzzy and the prices more than reasonable.

I go regularly to Hermanus and had started to give up finding a good restaurant there. I went there with a group of people on recommendation and was really happy we decided to try La Pentola. Service was excellent and the food sublime and creative. The chef was making sure we had an excellent meal and came to the table to great us and speak to us about his creations.
I can only recommend this restaurant and will come back be it privately or on business
