Lizette’s was recommended by our Airbnb hostess and we had driven past it a few times so decided to pop in one evening for drinks and small plates. Not our best experience in Hermanus if I’m honest. Started with a glass of fizz which was lovely but when I ordered a second glass it was pretty much flat. They replaced it and it was still flat - I think a faulty bottle but no attempt to open another one. So, I cancelled my second glass. The food was okay but towards the end of our light supper the waitresses brought several sizzling plates out of the kitchen and wafted past us. Honestly, we were engulfed in smelly smoke so bad it made our eyes water. We quickly paid and left. So, the decor was random to say the least. Sometimes whacky works but I really didn’t like the vibe. Bright red walls with animal Print curtains belong in some other decade. Ceiling tiles along the bar. It was just very amateur and mismatched. I think my 3 star rating is being generous.

During the course of my vacation I had 3 meals at Lizettes (with my parents living in Hermanus being regulars). The service was always friendly and efficient. The recommendations from the waiters were accurate and all my meals were excellent. A friend required gluten free options and this was catered for (her flat bread was very well received). Relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. One of the best places to eat in Hermanus.

Visited Lizettes during lunch and sat on the veranda. Lovely decor and pleasant interesting menu . The flatbread was light and quite tasty although not very generous in aubergine and tomato topping . The Aubergine was quite salty too. Dessert was pleasant. Overall we was happy with our food however the surly waitress was not pleasant. A simple smile and goodbye at the end of the meal would work wonders in ensuring we left happy and satisfied. A disappointing experience .

Lizette's is one of our favorite spots to visit for a special occasion or just on a regular day. Food here is sophisticated & absolutely high class quality (always fresh) prices are really good, service - one of the best you can ever get (all waiters make you feel as at home, friendly & very educated) vibe - is really amazing. You must like a bit spicy food though, otherwise come&ask for super mild option ;) For kids they have lovely playground. Absolutely recommend!

We have been to Lizette’s many times and have always enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the service is attentive. Today was no exception and despite our absence of a year or two, it was heartwarming to be remembered. We had the prawn dim sums and the green spring rolls, so fresh and so fragrant! The flatbreads are consistently good, but the surprise highlight was definitely the Vietnamese sago and coconut pudding, although the panna cotta was up there as equally awesome! Can’t wait for our next visit!

Another year and another holiday. Time for an update on Lizette's Kitchen. With many changes to the menu and taking inspiration from the Korean kitchen, this restaurant is still showing that it can stand the test of time. Again we popped in at different times of the day and again we could fine stuff that we liked from spring rolls, flatbreads and more Asian specialties. The breakfast buffet is a great new addition. We will always be great supporters of this venue as the effort and creativity needs to be supported. At the same time we can have our favorite beer (Amber Weiss) and favorite Gin here to boot. As a point of advise: I thought the toppings on the flatbread was rather sparse and the pork did not carry enough flavour to the dish. I was also surprised that the red curry noodles did not have that special Thai flavours. All the ingredients (whole herbs) seemed to have been in the dish, but it simply did not taste like the famous Thai favorite. Maybe a different cook on that shift, but something to have a look into. For the rest, a big thank you to the owner and staff for being their and giving it their all during the silly season. You are doing a great job. Keep it up until we visit you again.

If you like food with an Eastern twist, or for that matter for food with a different taste to the norm, go to Lizette’s Kitchen. This was our second visit and again we were blown away by the exquisite taste sensations of the food. To begin with we had the Koreanchicken bao buns. The best meal of the day due to the taste. Not to be missed! Mains was tempura fish for my wife and steamed Cape Salmon for myself. A totally different experience all together. I can only describe the tempura fish as fish-and-chips on steroid’s. The cape salom was perfectly done, soft moist with a very delicate flavour enhanced by the vegetables included in the dish. Both dishes also had a small bowl of Japanese inspired dip whci enhanced the flavoursome food even more. Also the staff are vey friendly and helpful and so is Lizette. She is an absolute star! Looking forward to the next time and to further explore the taste option available. Do yourself a favour, go and try for yourself.

Lizettes offers a simple menu with some great tapas dishes and the option to sit both in and outside. Staff are attentive, friendly and helpful. My two young boys who are fussy eaters were able to find something on the menu and play in the outside play area while waiting for the food. It provides a good option for individuals and families who aren’t up for a fine dining meal in other parts of town.

The red curry, which I've had before and enjoyed, was totally tasteless and devoid of flavour. We were a large group of people and i wasn't going to draw attention and spoil the outing for the others who were all enjoying their various meals. The chef might have left out ingredients by accident... and I'm certain he/she didnt taste it. Next time I'll choose something else. Lovely restaurant, lovely ambience, great wine list.

We frequent Lizette’s especially for the delicious flat bread and CBC Weis beer HOWEVER today I was most disappointed with the shredded chicken salad. I had to look for the chicken amongst the copious amount of leaves and sliced cabbage! The dressing was so salty that the salad was inedible. Truly the worst salad I have ever had!

As a treat to celebrate an incredibly relaxing Hermanus holiday, my husband and I decided on Lizette's Kitchen. WOW! I had read so many reviews of this restaurant and I thought they couldn't possibly all be true. Well I was wrong. The food was as good as the rave reviews, the service was attentive without being cloying and the atmosphere was like being invited into a home of a good friend. All in all a lovely end to a great holiday. Thanks and we will be back!

Frequent this restaurant on various occasions for lunch dinner and breakfast. Food is always good although some items are a bit too exotic for me, but I stick to what I know. Their selection of artisan flatbread (pizza) is really good! Great Asian dishes too. Very relaxing outdoor area under the trees.

We had the pleasure to return to Lizette's restaurant twice in 2 days. We loved the food,the vibe and best of all our waitres Paballo. She knows the menu well and can describe the food in such a manner that you can taste it before it reaches your table. You can relax and enjoy the sunset here. Well worth a visit. We will be back next time we are Hermanus.

Lizette's is a place we go back to time and time again when we're on holiday in Hermanus. The fusion of far eastern and African food makes it hard to decide what to eat. We tried most of the very varied menu but have our favourites we go back to. Love their tapas and Dim Sum. They've a wonderful shady out door area on hot days and a toasting wood burning stove on cooler evening. The atmosphere is always buzzing with contented guests. We love it!

We were given a friendly welcome and shown to our table. This was our first visit so we eyed the place critically. The menu is not a traditional menu, and items have a Vietnamese twist. As starters we shared pork spring rolls and tempura fish. Both were tasty and certainly got the juices flowing. For main course we had flat breads with a difference. I had the carbonara and my wife had the carpaccio. Both were divine. The place was not busy but i get the impression it could throb. We will be back
