La Pentola is fabulous, if you visit Hermanus you must eat there. The staff is so well trained and friendly, and the view and the food are out of this world.

Had a great meal last night at Le Pentola. Tried the warthog as I've heard so much about it. - Really was good. Thai soup for starters was to die for. Shane and Hugo are great chefs and Marcel our waiter was very attentive. Keep up the good work guys - well done.

Nice service, and a great wine recommended, but the food, though good, is a bit cream sauces heavy for my taste. Certainly wothh a visit, and the cream sauces can be avoided - but if that is your taste - then it is excellent - and good value

I went to La Pentola for my birthday and was treated like a princess! The staff are friendly and the food is fantastic! My friend and I shared the Angel Snails, which are out of this world! The main course was fabulous but we got so full! We said no to dessert but then the chef persuaded us to have the white chocolate terrine! Oh My Word! that was really the cherry on top of the birthday cake! I will tell everyone to go to La Pentola. It is truly the best in town!!!

We were making our first visit to Hermanus and hosts in Constantia recommended eating at La Pentola. We ate there twice in our 5 day stay and thank goodness we took up the recommendation. We needed to book for both occasions. All aspects of our meals would, I am sure, meet Michelin standards. The food, the presentation, the service all enhanced by that amazing view over the bay.
