The view is the only good thing. Starters are overpriced. We paid a lot for small portions of food.

Not recommending for anyone looking for a decent portion of lunch. What you get is 3 prawns for R135.

I went based on previous reviews and was disappointed.

Waiter wasn't keen on explaining to us when we asked about the menu.
We went to Ocean Basket thereafter for a decent seafood meal.

A stunning setting, friendly service, great Tapas and a drinks list to dream about. We were 4 of us (plus dog) and shared a few very tasty tapas dishes. Highly recommended.

Fick’s Pool Restaurant is a complete find. The setting is unique, the food amazing and the staff attentive and experienced. This is a must-do when you visit Hermanus.
They open at 11am and don’t take bookings so you may have to prepare for a little wait to get a table. But it’s worth it!! We went at 11 and were seated right away.

We could not fault the entire experience. Fick’s Pool is a unique location which doesn’t rest on its laurels because of this. The food is delicious and the staff professional, friendly and dedicated. We were a large party celebrating a birthday and had Cleo as our waitress for the afternoon. She added so much to our occasion. She was attentive, informative, and fun. Nothing was too much trouble.

Went to have brunch at the Fick’s. The view is exquisite, the waiters responsive and food is quite tasty and affordable. I ordered a seared duck breast which was slightly dry, but still flavourful and delicious.

There is no better venue to enjoy lunch in Hermanus than at Ficks Pool. This is a truly unique setting amongst the rocks next to a tidal pool with a view of the whales playing in the background. The food and service was next level excellent. The thin base pizzas and selection of other mezze type meals was excellent. Franco, the manager was super attentive, hands on and our waiter Sony was made sure our Iona Rose never ran out.

Food is excellent, staff friendly, managers prompt to assist. You are situated right on the sea, cannot get closer than this. Highly recommend.

I had the delight of taking friends of mine from Gauteng to Fick's Pool last Friday for dinner.

The venue, food, service, and ambiance were spectacular!

If anyone visiting this part of the world does not know about this place as yet or has never visited, you are missing out.
