As a local to Hermanus, we know how few restaurants can deliver a fine dining experience in Hermanus. My friend and I like to be spoilt when we do not cook at home, so for a treat we dined here last Friday evening.
The evening started with perfect Dirty Martinis in the lounge area with spectaculer decor.
The menu was delectable and lots of choice, but we both ordered the mussels as starters and fresh Walker Bay sole for mains.
The food was fantastic! Perfectly prepared and presented! The service 6star and the atmosphere perfect.

The prices are reasonable, and I rather pay a few rand more and have this divine experience than [pay a few rand less and walk away disappointed with the evenings experience.


I highly recommend the restaurant to visitors and locals.

The Marine Hotel Hermanus has been around for at least 90 years and appears to be the haunt of the Cape Town vieux riche and sons of the Empire. In spite of this a visit will not leave you bankrupt since their prices are very civilized. Here you will find the finest fine dining Hermanus has to offer with good service and reasonable food. I found the choice on their menu rather limited but the place and the atmosphere compensated for small faillings. Worth a repeat visit.

We started the evening in the cocktail bar sipping delicious Bellinis (Puréed peaches topped with champagne) While we relaxed we perused the full menu.

We started with a delicious prawn Caesar salad & fish cakes. We followed with a delicious seafood linguini & I had fish, chips & mushy fresh peas. The fish & peas were superb, sadly the chips were soggy.

My malva pudding was great as was Mel's selection of sorbets. We were served by a trainee, Mathew, who did an excellent job. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

We arrived on the doorstep at 8pm on a Saturday and they found us a lovely table. Lovely food and just "gentle" waiters - in that they were friendly and cheerful, but also left us to enjoy the relaxing environment. We had delicious fish and desserts. Can't really complain about anything!
