It was the first time I had visited the Red Herring in a few years. I would have given those past visits a solid 4 stars. However my last visit in April was nothing much to write home about. It was simply, average.
The view, setting and atmosphere are still brilliant but I felt that the service as well as the running of the place wasn't what it used to be.
Calamari - memorably good, tasty sauce.
Burger - Cheap, processed patty unfortunately.
Chicken salad - fresh greens but processed chicken.
---But if one is merely going for some slow drinks with a beautiful view and you don't happen to mind laid back service that is, at times,inconsistent, then I highly recommend the Red Herring.
But If you're wanting quality food and good service, you should consider going elsewhere. And in the Cape, you're spoiled for choice in this regard.
