Really enjoyed our meal here, service was good, we only had pizzas, although there was plenty of choice on the menu. Pizzas were very thin crust and tasty, bonus of a great value carafe of house wine which just suited us after a day of a rich lunch and wine tasting. Sitting overlooking the sea made it a lovely evening.... More

My husband and I ate here twice and both times it was pretty good. The pizzas were not the best, but pretty good and our servers were super friendly, fast and attentive. Prices tended to be on the high side, however, Hermanus is expensive in general and Marine drive is probably a high rent area. The location is excellent and... More

We had a phenomenal Paella here with superb service. Right on the front with prompt courteous service. Every bit of fish and shell fish in it that you could imagine. Superb!

What a little gem of a restaurant!! It was a chilly evening and we felt like some pasta to warm us up. We were not disappointed! Highly recommend the alfredo pasta, it was delish! But the menu is so much more than just pizza and pasta. There is something for everyone. Good vibe, good service, great food!

We went in search for a lunch spot on the piazza and with live music playing and beautiful weather we were forced into choosing the only place with an empty table, Paradiso. How lucky we were. Service was great and the food was good. We shared black mussels for starters and found them a little disappointing as I'm used to... More
