Well I had eaten here years before when it was the Mediterranean restaurant, and was initially disappointed that it was no longer there. Well I'm not disappointed any more! The food and service was just as good. What I love about there service is that even though the waiter was always at hand when needed, he was also unobtrusive and half the time we didn't even notice him bringing things or taking things away. Definitely will be back!

Went with a group of +-20 people to La Pentola. The owner really went out of his way to accommodate the group and prepared a fantastic meal.

Food was super delicious, very tasty and most enjoyable. Highly recommendable, thank you for a memorable meal!

Service was very good and the winter pasta special with little bread was most enjoyable. A great place to view the whales while enjoying your meal.

The menu at La Pentola is different to the restaurants in Hermanus. Their Chef's specials are very interesting. I had Galactic Chicken which was super delicious. My husband had the Forest Rump - served with a phyllo pastry stuffed with portabellino mushrooms and a creamy sauce.

Very pleasantly surprised. Highly recommend this restaurant. I have travelled extensively in my life and you have to go a long way to beat this package ito affordability, food, service and location.
