Critic's review

Diane de Beer

Food
This restaurant is about a generous heart and a passionate love for food. Chef-patron Shane Sauvage has matured over the years and has refined his passion for unusual flavour combinations. Their menu embraces all of that, with all tastes considered, from the determined carnivore, the pickier pescatarian or those who love their fruit and veg. For starters there's the Huckleberry Haloumi as a starter with thickly-cut grilled Cypriot goat's cheese, served with sugar-macerated strawberries with lemon and fresh mint. For mains, there's a choice of fish – Sauvage salmon or Hermanus sole  – or their delicious KWV fillet, if meat is your preference. Dessert includes an apple sponge or their iconic decadent chocolate terrine.

Wine
With the chef-patron based in the winelands, his cellar is something special. It's best to determine on the day what would be your best choice; local or international, it’s an exciting pick. New on the list are the De Wetshof Nature in Concert or their Walker Bay selection.

Service
There’s always a giggle in their service because the staff has a quirky style in both attire and approach, yet are always extremely professional.

Ambience
You’re either going to love it or you won’t but there’s an individuality that’s both charming and inviting. It’s where you want to relax and enjoy good food and wine, with everyone there determined to keep you happy. As the night runs out, people often spill out onto the pavement (weather-permitting) for a late-night coffee.

And…
La Pentola has also opened in Hermanus.
