Really beautifully cooked food in an intimate but informal setting terrace al fresco under shade of an ancient vine with a charming view across the mountains Fun friendly patronne entertains as well as explains each dish from a small tight menu that changes weekly and seasonally The owner/cook Brydon is a master in seasoning and favouring each dish perfectly, everything...

I love Innes cheekiness, and the relaxed way she deals with customers. By coincidence the dish that I chose on my previous visit was on the menu again, the pasta with olives and artichokes, and it was as good as the last time. I actually can't believe that I managed to eat a 3 course meal, but I did, and... More

The views are awesome, the service is pleasant, the food was great and the curries were yummy... what else can we say. We revisit the restaurant several times during our South African Trip and love it every time. The host are impeccable people.

Our lunch at Havercroft's was one of the highlights of our recent trip to the Hermanus area. The food was all wonderful - creative, but not over the top/intimidating - and left us feeling very full. But what really sets this place apart are all of the other intangibles. The setting - we were lucky to have a beautiful spring... More

Food first, I started with the spring salad which was made with locally produced and grown ingredients it was simply delicious especially the homemade sesame brittle. I followed this with the homemade tagliatelle with smoked trout and creamy grana sauce, there... More

After leaving Stanford just after Havercrofts opened it was just one of the biggest welcomes as if I had never left the area. From the huge welcome from the lovely Ines, to the magical food and with each course just going from strength to strength to spending the afternoon with the lovely Brydon and Ines relaxing after service was just...
