What a stunning setting for sundowners and sharing food between friends! The restaurant set up is lovely and our waiter was very friendly and fantastic! Our cocktails were perfectly made and our food was tasty as well. The food prices are a little high. Sadly...our one dish, the prawns, were a little disappointing as they were very small and a little over cooked. But the rest of our food couldn’t be faulted!More

Terrible and overpriced food, feels dirty and service below average. DO NOT recommend. Dirty plates and tables all around..

Absolutely a must when in Hermanus. Cocktails are great and their myxologist is willing to make a surprise cocktail at request. The hostess was charming and assisted us to a table with a great view. We even received a piece of cake with some singing...as it was my sisters birthday! Will definitely be back!More

This outdoor restaurant has a really beautiful setting. Had lunch in perfect weather . Food was good, but the service a bit slow. Only negative is young people comming for a swim and then harrasing diners for food. This is a problem that management should...get a grip on very quickly as it can only escalate. Maybe ask diners not to give them food, as this only encourages more to come and try their luck.More

The manager Franco loudly screamed and sweared at guests in front of everyone, he walked up to their table and started screaming at them! The service in general is appalling. Fick’s in Hermanus has a reputation for mediocre food at exorbitant prices but after seeing...the shocking behaviour of the so called manager Franco, we will never return. Avoid at all costs.More

We went for lunch. Service was good and the setting great! But, oh dear... the calamari was overcooked, cold and rubbery. The chicken wings were nice but also cold. The vat beer was as ordered - . This place has great potential but the food...was so-so.More

We unexpectedly thought to try Fick’s, not expecting too much quite honestly on a Wednesday afternoon. My word, what a find in Hermanus! Absolutely deliciously small plates, super tasty Flamkuchen (like a thin crisp pizza). Idilic stetting right by the ocean, relaxed yet prompt service....There where tons of kids swimming, so if you prefer peace and quiet at the ocean, this is maybe not for you. With beaches just being openheid we thought that this was the reason for the busy tidal pool. The food and wine selection is a win. We loved it! And will definitely go back.More

Phone them and ask them? I don’t think animals in a restaurant is a great idea but ask.
