A good location with nice views.
The food was average compared to the nice food we have enjoyed in SA but the service was terrible. The waiter and bar man were slow and arrogant. We got our bill given to us before we had the chance to order a dessert. They also don't respond to emails. I would highly recommend Burgundy in Hermanus instead.

Great view with a different erspective of Hermanus and Walker Bay. Food covers a wide range with a Asian flair. The thai starter for 2 was tasty and my sole was the best I have tasted in a long time. The crayfish was delicious but portion wise a bit pricey. Service left a bi to be desired as we had to eventually walk to the front desk to pay our bill. It did get busy.

Always good food. Great sea views inside or on the deck. Price reasonable. Staff can be a little off but food makes up for that

This is the best situated restaurant with a stunning sea view in Hermanus overlooking the Harbour/Sea. The restaurant is perfectly situated on a cliff in the Hermanus Harbour. The service was excellent, a very large variety of seafood and sushi menu. Even the most delicous duck is served with nice fresh veggies.
If you ever visit Hermanus this is a must see and visit!

We were lucky to have made an early reservation for a window table, as that was well worth it. Watching the Fishermen on the Pier and looking out over the bay is just so calming and special. This is fortunate, because you need to have a lot of patience and calmness until you get served.
We did finally get our food - each in his own time .... Our young son received a VERY underdone Salmon Trout, a long while before our orders arrived. Whilst we do appreciate that fish should not be overcooked, this was a child's meal, arrived way too early and could have passed as sashimi. Our waitress insisted that the chef will not cook it any further ....
Nevertheless, the quality of the food is really good and fresh, and the view - Awesome.
