Critic's review

The owner is Belgian, so expect excellent mussel recipes, very good chopped steak tartare and tender grilled calamari, with the best chips and tartare sauce. There’s also fish soup with aioli and toast, excellent lamb curry for the carnivores, and very good crème brûlée and brandy tart to finish up.

A small list of offerings from the area.

Snappy and friendly.

This is one of the oldest cottages in town, steeped in character. A bit on the dark side inside, it is at its best in summer.

Works best with a group of friends having fun. (GL, October 2012)

  • Absolutely amazing, best fish and chips ever, and succulent prawns available as a side dish! Highly recommended :) It''s set off the road, in a tranquil setting under a large tree, with quiet music playing. What more could you want?

  • What a gem! After looking for a good lunch time venue and following Trip Advisor, we were so surprised at this quaint little restaurant. The best fish I have ever eaten 'hands down'. After whale watching and working up an appetite in the fresh sea air, we were all (a table of 10 people) quickly seated and served very appetising meals. From the starters, particularly the Bitterballen right down to the Beer Battered Fish and Chips, Combo platters of tasty Prawns and Calamari - all the food was simply divine, well presented, good portions, great value for money and served with a smile. Lovely selection of Artisan Beers too - thanks for a lovely experience, we will definately be back again!

  • Seafood soup and seafood platter were superb, the fresh line fish on the platter was excellent, service helpful and attentive. This little gem exceeded our expectations and we definitely will be back. We asked ourselves as all the other restaurants in Hermanus had amazing views, this restaurant attracted customers by having excellent food.
