We ate lunch at Pear Tree yesterday. What a treat! The staff was so welcoming, knowledgeable about the food and accommodating. Thank you Kaylin our terrific server. The food was absolutely delicious with fresh ingredients and so very flavourful. Highly recommend

I am gluten intolerant, and they were willing to work with me. I had the steak & mushroom without the gnocchi (they substituted a potato side). But followed by the AMAZING pear panna cotta. Do NOT miss this dessert! Loved it! If it weren't SO...far away I'd go back soon! The view is great outside too!More

We enjoyed the warm atmosphere on a rainy evening. The service was excellent and the food very good. There is a nice outside area where you can watch the whales.

Headed out to Hermanus on Sunday for lunch and whale watching. Unfortunately, the restaurant that we ate at did not have Vegan desserts. After searching I found Pear Tear. I headed over and ordered the Big Bang and it was AMAZING. The meringue, ice-cream and...brownies are perfect!!!! Beautiful dessert in taste and presentation. Thank you for contributing to a great day in Hermanus. I can’t wait to be back for a full meal.More

What and awesome meal! Staff and location were great and some of the tastiest food we’ve had in a while. Great vegetarian and vegan options that beat anything I can make at home. Well done to the team at the Pear Tree.

Awesome experience. The food was amazing with brilliant options for both vegan and non-vegan patrons. The Big Bang vegan dessert was out if this world. Ashley is an absolute gem!
