“Review with a view: Food, Friends and Francois”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

My wife and I love taking friends to Francois' restaurant. Friendships are firmer after the meal, the service is friendly, cheerful and sensible. Enjoy the most southerly mountain range in Africa looking across Walker Bay towards Antarctica. Busy with boats below the Rock, there is a farm behind the Rock. What kind of farm could that be? Perlemoen! Over the mountains are other farms to improve our mood: wine, wonderful wine! Enjoy...

“Reliably good food”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

How is the Harbour Rock as low as this in the Trip advisor ranking?? We have dined here for 12 years, and twice this week, and it is the best dinner in Hermanus. Great views over the harbour, warm and friendly atmosphere, excellent and helpful well informed staff, a good and long wine list, and then the food! There is a sushi menu and a Thai menu, but we stick with the seafood and meats. All are fantastic, plenty of it and delicious: the seafood platter is fish, prawns, calamari, salad and chips. The duck and steak dishes are large and great value. Don't miss the Harbour Rock if you visit Hermanus.
