I can't rave about this place enough our waitress Ashley so friendly and efficient. The food is to die for the line fish with linguini just delicious and the hake lovely. The cherry on the top was the panacota which not only was scrumptious but...the presentation a work of art. Highly recommend this eatery.More

We have returned to this restaurant many times since we started dating 8 years ago. Me and my wife consider Pear Tree our all time favourite dining destination.

Cannot believe how many times I’ve been to Hermanus without visiting this fabulous restaurant. Finally discovered it tonight. Service is great. Food choices are amazing. Had some really good wine. Definitely recommended.

We were pleasantly surprised. The menu is smallish, but the food was amazing - beautifully presented and delicious. Howard was a great waiter with good suggestions and knowledgeable about the food. The steak was perfectly cooked and the gnocchi was amazing. The desserts are imaginative...and delicious. Really enjoyed the experience.More

Every time we visit this restaurant the food is consistently exceptional. Beautifully prepared and presented with quality ingredients and veg. The service is top and during social distancing the bears brought so much fun to the experience. Well done again.

I was very excited when I saw the vegan options on the menu. We were there for breakfast so I decided to go with the Yellow Smoothie Bowl. It was absolutely delicious! We also had a wonderful waiter, Howard, and the atmosphere of the restaurant...(even though it was a cold and cloudy day) was fantastic. I will definitely be back to try the vegan taco's and vegan milkshake.More

I have visited this restaurant three times in as many months; enjoying every little thing about this eatery each and every time. The food never fails to hit the spot. I find that in many South African restaurants, quantity is often the approach .... at...the expense of quality. I was with two guests and found my meal (Sirloin) to be just perfect and sublime; my fellow diners had calamari and ordered two sides of hand cut chips (crispy on the outside - soft and fluffy on the inside ... clearly the correct variety of potati is being used here). Moreover, I noted that not one of us used any of the seasoning or condiments provided; which in itself is telling. Clearly great care is taken by the whole team to get it right from the onset; staring from the waiting staff and clearly all the way to the chefs in the kitchen - ingredients are fresh with clean crockery and cutlery ...... I always walk away feeling envigorated.More

After watching the whales and dolphins, our day was topped by a superb evening at The Pear Tree Restaurant. The food was very tasty ... I was surprised at how affordable it was for such an excellent meal. Friendly service and a helpful manager.

We honestly had the best vegan meal we’ve had in about two years, haven’t had such a delicious meal since coming back from Bali. The restaurant went out of their way to organize a non alcoholic bottle of bubbles for our the special occasion. We...started off with the burnt cauliflower bowl (excluding the halloumi). Followed by the pink falafel tacos, and our first serving of vegan ‘fish’ and chips. We then moved on to the pulled seitan ‘chicken’ taco and had to re order a second serving of the ‘fish’ and chips as it was so good. I ordered the CBD infused Grapefruit and Rosemary mock tail and will definitely recommend this to all. We ended our night off with The Big Bang dessert, which was quite possibly the best dessert either of us has ever had. It wasn’t just beautifully presented but so damn tasty. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating and we will definitely be going back to support. It was worth the 1.5 hr drive one way. Thank you Cynthia for being a delightful waitress and Che and the team for their hospitality and supporting the future of plant based food 👌🏽✨ The food is amazing.More
