Although I visit Hermanus often, I had never heard of this establishment. A friend of mine suggested that we meet there for lunch and I looked forward to "pastures new" and the promise of a meal of fresh fish. The cabin itself is unpretentious but...More

We have visited this restaurant a few times and will go back. The food is delicious and the service friendly and efficient. This week I had the prawn curry pot and my husband had calamari. The curry was not too spicy and the calamari was...More

What a little gem on the harbour just below Harbour Rock. Great food and quick service, be sure to book in advance as it is usually full.

Very tasty Cape Salmon, great Hake too. A bit pricey for the average South African, but you do get quality food. Service is only mediocre.

Excellent place for fresh, quality local fish. However, the waiter and waitress who served us throughout the evening were arrogant, impatient and rude. Poor service has an impact on the entire dining experience - what a shame.
