Great friendly service, both when we visited for drinks and later for dinner. Fabulous fresh fish for OH, and I had a great steak and pud.... More

My husband and I felt like a lazy outing on a Sunday. We went to Paradiso for lunch. We sat outside the restaurant and enjoyed the gorgeous view and the relaxed atmosphere. My husband had the fried hake and I had the calamari. Amazing! Fresh and very generous portions for the price. The service was friendly and efficient. We will... More

We had not booked on a Saturday night but happily there was a table available. Our waiter was helpful with our wine choice which turned out to be perfect. We shared calamari for straters which was ok. Both had steaks for mains. Juicy, tender and perfectly cooked. If you fancy a steak, go here.

If you havent made a reservation in Hermanus for dinner you are kind of on your own. We didn't book but the owner was so kind to allow us in an rearranged some tables. We had a wonderful pasta and pizzza together with some lovely wine. Really nice place to go to and very reasonably priced.

Service was great from Augustine, the paella was the best we've ever had in our whole lives and I've been to mainland Spain. Amazing. Great views of The sea also. Highly recommended.

This restaurant has a good menu with plenty of choice and very reasonably priced wine. We both ordered a pizza. They were freshly made with a wonderfully thin crust and a good layer of topping. I must admit to looking enviously at some of the food delivered to other tables that loked even better than my choice that night.

This is preferred regular spot in Hermanus for pasta. Service is always knowledgeable, friendly and quick. Food is great, and the setting is perfect. Nothing complicated or pretentious here, just simple generous creamy portions of carbs, and the desserts are a hit with the kids too.

We love Paradiso, go there at least twice a week. Good food, good service. Paul loves the Belgian style mussels, and I go for the chicken snitsel or a nice salad. And yes the wine is also well pricedx
