Must request a table with a view looking across Walker Bay. Service was prompt and although the food took a while getting to the table, the view makes up for the wait. Snails were delicious, as was the crayfish thermador which was rich and decadent.

Wonderful basic food cooked beautifully. Subtle flavours on old faithfuls.

Crayfish grilled in lemon butter - succulent

Rump Steak accompanied with tasty carrots, green beans and croquette potatoes plus a delicate pepper sauce

Shane opened his doors 8 months ago and it's flying. He still has his restaurant in Pretoria.

The staff are really friendly and it's very fair value.

Super recommendation, thanks TripAdvisor.

In an area blessed with many fine restaurants, this has to be the best food and the best view over Walker bay. Don't be put off by the entry up a staircase - the effore is worth it!! Do try the Courgette Carpaccio!!

I have no idea where to start... from the very first visit La Pentola i have never been disapointed! By far one of the best places to have a good lunch or dinner in Hermanus. Run by an amazing family!!! :-) The menu is so versatile from meat dishes to vegetarian options and all the food is made with love. The staff are all very friendly which makes having lunch there a lot more pleasant :-) La Pentola is a MUST!!!!!!! ♡♥

Great and popular cook. You'd better make a reservation, because usually they're fully booked. Great great food from meat over Seafood to fish and specialities like crocodile and ostrich. Very nice place!
