We tried a craft beer tasting, with flatbread recently and stayed on for dinner. Characterfully decorated, and a strong eastern menu make this an unusual restaurant in Hermanus. The service is not fast, and the food may not be particularly cheap or mainstream for South African palates but it is good to have different options to consider once in a while. Having said all that the lamb flatbread was delicious and I enjoyed my super spicy Green Curry.

Finally having a weekend away to celebrate a special occasion, I spent a lot of time on trip advisor researching restaurants in hermanus. And apparently lizette's had great burgers and the men looked quite interesting. Upon arrival we couldn't find the front door and coming into the restaurant we stood there for a while before the manager pointed out that we need to go to the waiter in the corner of the room. Our table was quite cozy and close to a fire place which was good as it was raining outside. Our waiter was friendly and the ordering system was quite advanced. The garlic loaf on the menu said sage but came with basil and pancetta, which there was no mention of on the menu. The amount of garluc overpowered the other flavors though, but we love garlic so pretty tasty. The next was the dukkah crusted cheese balls... what a let down. It was 4 balls with a massive salad and no dukkah. Only a cumin spice around the cheese. My husband's burger was average, not medium like he ordered it, confit garlic was tasty but cold and no chili jam. The "blue cheese stuffing" was a small amount of melted blue cheese on top. Definitely not worth R99. After a huge mission between the manager and waiter to ask if i can exchange noodles for egg fried rice and failing. Because, trust me, they will NOT deviate from the original menu. My main course was chicken broccolini green curry. Very tasty although hot, which there is no mention of on the menu of how hot it is mild, medium or hot. There is no mention on the menu of gluten free ir any other dietary needs. Only by main course and after the egg- noodle business..
We wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone and will not be returning.

When we arrived they had a wedding reception on and we were told we'd have to wait a while for our food, or book in the following night. We stayed and it was surprisingly quick and service was great. Delicious range of Asian fusion food and fantastic value for money. Definitely recommend.

We ate here a couple of times during our stay in Hermanus and also enjoyed drinks on the decking. We had visited last year on our trip with family and returned again this year.

We found the staff and owner both friendly and professional, always making sure that everything was OK. It is one of our favourite places both this year and last. The outside deck is a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by on a sunny afternoon whilst enjoying a cocktail or ice cold Savanah Dry. The interior is beautifully decorated and felt warm and inviting.

We found the food always good here. The Artisan Flatbreads are very good and quite a size. Also enjoyed this time was the Moroccan Scented Squid & Tabbouleh Salad and the Asian Style Fish and Chips and one of the sharing platters.

Will definitely be back next time we visit Hermanus.
