When entering the restaurant for lunch we were the only table and this at high season in December. But they convinced with a very good and personal service. The whole menue was explained very competent and nicely. The seafood dished and the starters were great a friend if mine was not too happy with his steak. We would come back.

Excellent food, very tasty and with a variety of tastes combined! The view is spectacular and the service excellent! Very friendly waiters and even the chef came by to find out how we experience the food.

We were surprised about the small restaurant in the 1st floor at the Marine Drive.

The waitress Annaret explained all dishes in a mouth watering way. And what we got on our plates was very, very delicious. After our first visit we immediately booked a table for the next evening, as we were sure that we could not find a better place to eat in Hermanus.

Back home we cooked "Intergalactic Chicken" - and it reminds us of the wonderful stay at La Pentola.

Nice views of the ocean and had a lovely meal, desserts particularly impressive. Make sure you request a window seat. Service was friendly but a little slow (restaurant was busy…).
