We celebrated my husbands 60th Birthday here. With 22 people it could have been a disaster but Joe and his amazing staff made it a memorable occasion. The food was great and the service amazing. Not the first time we've eaten there and most certainly not the last.

What a fantastic experience - we both wanted a very light lunch. I had the chicken livers (special) and such a good choice by Elsje, our waiter, who are always more than helpful and is a connoisseur on the menu as well as the choice of wine with the dish. Well done Pear Tree, again you amazed us with the... More

All the... More

Great food, great service in a nice atmosphere in a restaurant with character. For desert I ordered cheesecake – the waiter asked why I’d not eaten it all and I explained that I’d thoroughly enjoyed it but that I was now full – they insisted on deleting it from the bill even though I told them they shouldn’t.

An unpretentious place where the food, and service are top-class. The chef is interested in his clients and their comments. Loved it!

Arrived in Hermanus at 11:45 wondering if we would still be able to get breakfast anywhere as we had had none. We were very very happy to find out that Pear Tree does breakfast until 12, and even though it was 12:05 they still took our order. I had them with beacon (surely local, as it tasted amazing) and my... More
