'Lemon Butta' - the food was excellent. Try their signature dish - seared Tuna, sesame coated. Courteous staff and good service and ideally located overlooking the harbour. Booking essential!

We have tried several restaurants in Hermanus but the thuna steak with garlick butter at the Lemon Butta topped them all. The service from our waiter Bongani was heart warmingly entertaining as well as competent. Thanks a lot for a great experience.
