What a contrast between culinary experience and hospitality. We nearly walked out after our experience with a totally untrained waiter. Everything went wrong, from just dropping my wife’s cold drink on the table without a glass or ice, let alone lemon, to serving my beer...More

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. Due to circumstances beyond our control, Heritage Cottage does not have a liqour license. The good news is …. you can bring your own we wont charge you corkage.
