“Wonderful, never a bad meal”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 via mobile

We have visited Hermanus for the past 3 years and always eaten here. We went for dinner there a few nights ago and again were not disappointed, a fantastic menu with freshly caught fish and varied and tasty choices and a great kids selection. Our group had the line fish, the lamb curry, the steak and the fish pie, all were superb.

It is a little building that doesn't look like much and you could be mistaken to visit one of the bigger more commercial restaurants, this would be a bad decision. There is a reason it is always busy and you should book ahead! Highly recommended.

“Fabulous Seafood in a quaint building”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 via mobile

A lovely cosy restaurant with a good menu and daily specials. Seafood was fresh, and the portion sizes good. Had the seafood curry which was lovely and a special of Durban Calamari which was totally different and full of flavour. Also love the fact it is BYO. Would recommend.

“Our waiter is there no more...a pity...”
Reviewed 29 March 2016

We frequently dine at Fisherman's, and the food and atmosphere is never disappointing. Unfortunately my reason for the 3* rating is
that we had heard that our favourite waiter, Raffaele, has left. Enthusiastic, entertaining and very knowledgeable on the cuisine and
wine front, we are sad to say we will miss you Raffaele. He had great 'sommeliering' and silver service skills, which is very rare these days. Fisherman's Cottage has lost a gem of a waiter :(

“Supper”
Reviewed 29 March 2016

it is very busy and if you do not book, you see how sad the people are whom are turned away. This little place will be Hermanus for me. Great, interesting and reasonable meals. The owners and the waitresses are busy but professional. We loved loved loved this place. Stay another night to visit this restaurant!
