If you like meat, it's the place. They may serve more than you can chew, and it is pretty delicious. If you are accompanied by a vegetarian, forget it, they don't have an offer for such people. They have a funny way to present their choice (the raw meat comes in plastic to your table and you pick a piece). Only one thing for carnivores to mind.... As in many places in South Africa they would cover the grilled meat with some sour marinade that ruins the roasted crust on the outside. Next time I will ask them to omit this. In my opinion good meat should only be married with fire, salt and pepper.

A thoroughly modern fun steakhouse with excellent staff and very good steaks. We had no problem diving straight in with ribeye steaks, eschewing starters. The cooking of the meat was outstanding and the flavour exceptional. Sides were excellent and sauces not really needed. Two of our party had the dry aged steaks, whilst very good, did not really justify the significant extra cost. Stick to the wet aged beef and you’ll be happy. John, our waiter, was very jolly and very efficient. A lively addition to Hermanus’ not very exciting restaurant scene.

Arrived without a reservation on Sunday evening. We were seated immediately. I would advise booking if you do not want to be disappointed. The restaurant filled up very quickly. I had the Calamari, grilled as a starter. It was probably the best I have ever had. Superb. We both chose dry aged steaks from the daily selections. I had Rump, my wife had Fillet. We both formed the same opinion, we have had better from our local butcher in the uk. Both steaks were a little tough and not as tasty as we thought it might be. Shame. I don’t know whether the big steak knives are for show, but you should not need one if you have a good steak. The accompanying dishes were lovely. The service was great. The overall atmosphere was also very good. I would go back, just might choose a different main course.

My husband looked up this place and we actually walked past it the night before we came to visit. It was as if the vibe surrounding the restaurant, made us excited to commit to our reservation, never mind the quirky menu. The greeting on arrival is friendly and efficient and we were seated in a lovely booth. Our waitress Hope was well trained and very knowledgeable about her product. The staff are all actually very happy and smiley as you sit back and watch them. The cocktail and wine list is great and ordering cocktails on arrival usually scare me, due to the delay of preparing them.. Here, no delays with great results. We had a bit of a tough night with our 2 year old, but the staff were very relaxed and the more I became uneasy, the more they made it comfortable, giving us some time between main courses and letting us have a very chilled, spread out dinner. I absolutely loved my prawn starter, with just enough to not fill me up, but enough to let your hands get dirty. My husband had the Short Rib Won Ton, which was good, but I won that round on ordering :) We both ordered the Sirloin for main, with my side being the truffled Polenta and his side being the tempura corn.. I gave him about 2 scoops of the Polenta, as I needed to finish the bowl - a very generous bowl with the truffle not at all being overpowering. The great thing is, that they give you an option between basting or not, which we prefer not too, and the flavor of the meat really showed, great quality! We simply couldn't manage desserts, but will surely give it ago when we're back, which we will be! Thanks team for a great experience. P.S - Book in advance, the manager at the front is very accommodating, however, we could see they were a buzzing little bee...

Our dinner at Char’d was amazing. A very welcoming and stylistic restaurant for those who are interested in high quality food. We had a very attentive waitress who showed us the available dry aged meat, which was drying for minimum 8 weeks. We chose a Rumpsteak and a Fillet. Both of them were quite fantastic and had a great flavour. The meat is offered with one of a few sides and you are able to take an extra sauce. All in one it was a great experience for an absolutely fair price! #youwon’tregretit

Coming from CT, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to high-end steakhouses. We were decidedly underwhelmed by Char'd. Decor tired and uninspiring. Only 3 options for steak, all over R200....which is acceptable, however they catch you with sides and chips etc. Things like milkshakes at R55 just irritates me. Wife's kingklip was decent, however at R225 I can do better. Decent place, nice staff - however we won't return.

we stumbled into Char'd recently trying to find a good place for lunch and were immediately taken in by the warm welcome and the place gave as a good sence of arrival. Great ambiance, good service, excellent draft beer (pale ale) but it is the quality of their steaks that is simply outstanding. We all had the rib eye, cooked perfectly to taste, sides and all and we will be back for more when they start serving cuts from their aging fridge. Great addition to Hermanus, a place now serving superior food, well done, highly recommended

We were rushed by our waiter to order etc. Steak was good, very expensive though when you consider for chips you have to pay R35 extra for about 8 chips which were greasy and over cooked. Overall it was ok but would be reluctant to return due to price. For my wife and myself the bill was R800 with no starters or dessert!!!!

We called at Char'd for a late lunch and were very pleased with the quality of food served. The staff made us very welcome and, in addition to the standard menu, we were shown the restaurant's speciality frozen beef cuts. We started with unusual but nice dishes of snails and bone marrow with luge and then chose calamari, which was very tasty, and one of the beef cuts which was superb, tender and tasty. The service was excellent and overall the meal was a very nice experience.

Went to Char’d tonight and had an absolute blast. The hospitality by the whole Char’d crew is something special, it feels like family from the moment you enter the place. Our waiter Thabo was on top of things the whole time and was a great example how good customer service looks like. He made a reservation possible for us on very short notice, and the place gets quite busy quickly in the evening. The meat and burgers were excellent and the pricing is absolute fair for the quality being served. Looking forward to our next dinner at Char’d already.

Wow what a great spot for a yummy burger - either beef or chicken schnitzel topped with crunchy onion pieces…..we arrived after booking , and the place was choc a block! Not realising it was a monday night special: R90 for any burger! Wiyh a small beer which we declined. So i ordered a chicken burger, no roll, no chips, side salad, no seeds, no peppers, the conscientious waiter wrote it all down…..i was pleasantly surprised when my chicken burger was delivered to order! Excellent service and partners order with no chips, onion rings arrived to order! A beer and a glass of wine completed our meal. Too full for dessert, an excellent place to visit,this was not our first time there and will definitely return. I have to mention, in general, all meals we enjoyed in Hermanus were served with happy, smiling, knowledgeable staff.

My wife and I frequented Chard Grill on a Sunday evening after reading such good reviews from other people. Regretfully we were both disappointed with our mains. My wife had battered fish and chips and I had a chuck steak. We ordered a bottle of pinotage to go with our mains. Since this is predominantly a steak restaurant I was expecting better. Firstly, the choice of steak offered was limited to only 3 cuts of meat, T bone, rump and chuck. My first choice for a bavette steak was unavailable so I decided to try the chuck steak. A bad choice as it turned out. The steak was nicely cooked medium rare, however, it was too sinewy and half the portion (which was already small) was inedible. The meal cost R810 including gratuity.

Thank you for your feedback. Please note that our dry aged cuts we butcher as they are ready, thus there might be certain cuts not available. However on our menu we still have three more additional wet aged cuts. Kindly note that Chuck steak is over all tough and can have a lot of sinew. However this should've been mentioned to you by the waiter and we will address this matter with staff. With that said though had we known that you were not happy with the cut, we would've happily replaced it for you. We hope you will visit us again and should there be any problems with your food, please let us know right away so we can fix it for you.

We opted on this restaurant based on previous reviews. What an utter disappointment. Front of house staff were brilliant. Unfortunately the food was the biggest let down. We ordered a meat appreciation platter to share....it was cold and totally unappetising. Don't waste your money...we won't be returning...

Thank you for your feedback. As you mentioned the previous reviews, this is clearly not our standards. If anything was mentioned to our staff I can assure we would've rectified this right there and then. I will be taking this up with our head chef though to find out where things went wrong so this won't happen again.

Great steakhouse in the mid of Hermanus, fantastic choice of dry and wet aged beefs, any cut you can imagine. Would be even better with more delicate sides. Attentive staff, however sometimes insufficient explanations... nevertheless- highly recommended!!!

We visited this restaurant and the food was delicious. I had hake which they did without batter, despite it being described as being with and it was absolutely gorgeous. My vegan daughter had a lovely vegan meal which was brought from their sister restaurant, 50 metres away. They were so accommodating and the atmosphere was lively and fun without being too much. My husband had meat which he declared excellent! Our waitress was Norlee, who was just gorgeous and couldn’t have been more smiley, helpful and happy. A great experience and highly recommend this restaurant
