We stumbled in looking for some lunch in Hermanus. Very friendly staff, nice and cosy inside, outside sitting with beautiful view on the sea and we even spotted some whales. Menu is divers, food was nice, prices average I'd say. Five points, no complaints.

Lovely restaurant. Unique menu, great food, lovely atmosphere, top-notch service. Can't go wrong here. I would describe it as comfortable, high end dining - something for everyone and not overly pricey but a very nice night out.
