This charming fisherman's cottage, which forms part of the Misty Waves Boutique Hotel, is one of the earliest built in Hermanus more than 150 years ago. The understated elegance of the venue is carried through to the menu, which offers no more than half a dozen starters , mains and desserts to choose from, but is also well thought out that it caters for all tastes. Dishes embody classical sophistication on a plate. Enjoy good honest food whilst looking out to sea . We look forward to welcoming you.
