This was our first visit to the Hermanus wine region and how lucky we were to end up at Creation. We sat on the lawn and hadn't planned to eat anything. After seeing the food we decided to order something after all. It was delicious!...The presentation was also amazing and the wine to go with it spot on. We had a look inside the restaurant which also looks nice. Please just do your guests one favour: stop playing Kenny G. There is so much better and up to date music out there;-)More

I called beforehand as our group of 6 had two vegetarians and one vegan. I was told they were catered for. I was also asked if it was a special occasion and mentioned it was an anniversary celebration. After some discussion with Monique, it appeared...that there were very limited options on the a la carte menu for the vegetarians - only a cauliflower steak (!!) so we decided to pay up for the tasting menu paired with wines (a rather hefty R450pp). In a nutshell, the wine was delicious and Monique was knowledgeable, however, the portions were absolutely minute and we left really hungry (albeit very merry) and went for a meal elsewhere. Disappointing.More

We returned to Creation for the second time after lock down and the restaurant was back to normal, innovative food and great wine pairings. The place was busy on a Monday with a tremedeous vibre and ambiance, people buzing about, looking happy and content. Good...to see this kind of spirit in such difficult times. Well done Creations, keep it up !More

We had heard about the place and there was a lot of hype to try the tasting menu. First impressions were good but thereafter it didn't quite live up to my expectations. The place was busy and service was slow. We hadn't booked so couldn't...get a table for lunch. Instead we opted for a wine tasting session. Artwell was informative but he was obviously very busy. Know we shouldn't have have been in a rush but we waited for a long time between each tasting. Might have been better if we had booked and experienced the tasting menu and wine pairing.More
