friendly staff. Good food and very good coffee. All in all a pleasant experience. Nice ambience and you feel welcome. A nice place to take clients. The Camembert starter was exquisite - one can order a double for a main course I think :)

A real hidden gem with beautiful views, laid back and friendly service with a great choice of lunch for all the family. I'd say we'll be back soon but sadly only passing though. Highly recommend a stop here if you're passing by!

Really love this place .... Casual, friendly and just hits the spot. Their love for dogs makes it for me.... Demonstrates their kindness and openness. Ambience cool and a place to visit for sure. Never fails to impress 👍🏼

We arrived and it is a pleasant venue but that is were it ends. The service was bad and the food is more expensive than similar type restaurants. When the food arrived we were all very disappointed. Safe to say we will not be going back there.

Good food and friendly service. Nice deck area to watch the sunset. Not a great selection if you enjoy your gin like I do

Called in here last night, 1st August (anniversary gathering), for a bit to eat as our previous yearly visits have been very good. Upon being seated by a friendly young man we were somewhat surprised to find dogs roaming in the restaurant. The dogs were under (or not) the control of a woman who took great exception to me shooing... More

We spent a short evening at the Red Herring, sitting up on their roof top terrace. We noted the following: The staff was super nice, attentive and helpful. The view was quite nice, although not as stunning as can be the case in Noordhoek. The pizza and the food in general left a bit to wish for, but seeing that... More

First time here with friends while on holiday. Service was dreadful, waitress brought wrong drinks, after a long wait to take order!! When the first course eventually came, one of the meals was unavailable apparently, we were only told this when other members of the party were given their starters. We had to ask for them to take the orders... More

Two of us had sirloin steaks, one a pizza and the other fishcakes; very well presented and nice size portions. However, one thing not so good; my steak ordered medium rare was more to the medium side but was so tough that I could not actually eat it all. Chips, salad and mushrooms great as the accompaniment. Remarked to the... More
