The Red Herring is a great bar/pub that is the fabulous huge sandy Noordhoek beach. The atmosphere is fun and frivolous with good bar space inside and an outside upstairs deck with bench tables that is a great place to eat at. The pizza's seem to be a particular favourite. The ones we are were delicious, loads of flavour and... More

Great food, great coffee, and wonderful staff. Nice venue, pets welcome. Good vibe and a place worth returning to. They have Gluten free pizza - but as usual the premium you pay on that is not cheap. I definitely will be going that way with clients in future

Great location and venue Food excellent but slightly limited menu. Waiting staff excellent and the views from the balcony were great. The place is busy and and there are various parts of the building to sit in to suite your taste and comfort

Great place to stop after watching spectacular sunsets on Noordhoek beach. Good selection of beers and pizzas are top notch.

Been here many times and always come away happy. Great hamburgers and pizza. A selection of beers and drinks and excellent service. Sit upstairs at sunset and enjoy the view. Only sour note for me is the canned music gets a bit loud at times. 5 stars and certainly a place I will go to again and again.

We recently enjoyed a lovely meal at Red Herring. The burgers we had were great - very tasty and the portions extremely generous.

I've eaten at The Red Herring a few times and dinner there last night again did not disappoint. The views are great and the waiters are quite attentive and friendly. I love their Pizza's with wonderful combinations and the Calamari main is also always a winner!

Gerard was our server here and he was excellent. Looked after the fickle children and their constantly changing minds and the adults alike. The food was good , we ate downstairs so it was casual, not sure if this applies to the whole establishment. It was also busy which is also a good sign. Near the beach too.

Great food, friendly staff. Went several times. Just down the road from our rental. Great downstairs when really hot or windy but lovely terrace with good views too. Will go again next time we visit Noordhoek.

We ate inside - tables are spaced really far apart. The night we ate there it was quite empty, so not much ambience. I ordered the Quesadilla as a main course and it was delicious. We had very good service. This is a dog-friendly restaurant. There were a few wandering around. They didn't bother us at all.

Thank Sarah P
