Living local, Dutchies is a great place to relax and meet up with friends for a snack or a meal. Lovely to visit for breakfast after an early morning walk on the fantastic Grotto Beach. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Also the menu is varied with daily specials all of which I find are value for money. Love... More

We visited as a family, whilst the children played on the beach we sat and had drinks in the setting sun. A lovely location right on the beach. Perfect. Staff really friendly and attentive. We only did drinks but several people around us had the sushi plates.

Dutchies serves first class fish and chips as well as steaks and some specials of the day. The hake and calamari combo is outstanding value.

Really good setting, right on the beach at Grotto. Wonderful atmosphere, really good spot to have sundowners and cocktails, especially in Summer. The food is really good and very well priced, very generous portions and well presented. Very friendly owners.

A great place to enjoy the sun going down, the staff are helpful and attentive, the food was great we had king clip our favourite SA fish and it was excellent here. The wine list is good. All in all if you visit Hermanus try here for supper or lunch followed by a walk along the beach,bliss.

The Dutchies is more or less a typical beach restaurant offering a reduced menu with fair prices and good quality very close to the beach. We can definitely recommend to visit that location, especially the separate bar area for a sundowner.

As you would expect from a restaurant beside the beach, the seafood is excellent and there is a good varied menu. There is also a beach bar opposite and even nearer the beach which serves amongst other things some excellent beer and very tasty sushi. A great place for lunch!
