Reading the reviews below, I am starting to think the chef must have had a really bad day when we visited... The food we tasted was awful. My husband had a bone in his chicken, and my pasta was just so badly seasoned I could only figure how is it even possible to produce a dish like this. The owners are really sweet and hospitable. But due to the food-experience we cannot recommend this restaurant to foodies like ourselves.

We walked by this place and decided to have dinner as it's a small and warm restaurant near by our apartment. The food was excellent and definitely recommended! We tried the Springbok and Lamb curry, and their Don Pedro dessert is a must! Together with the warmth of both hosts, this place was a very nice experience.

We had dinner here on our one night in Hermanus. Our hosts were amazing and we know the food was created especially for us. It was delicious. They need to expand their selection of wines but this was a mere blip in the whole experience.

We pre-booked a table. The meal was excellent, the service was attentive and the staff very pleasant. A lovely atmosphere - our meal here was perhaps the best of the three week stay in South Africa. We certainly would go next time we pass through Hermanus.

Very friendly and food was great. Small restaurant making it feel as if you are visiting friends or family. Nice coffee after the meal.
