We celebrated my Dad"s birhtday here and we just loved it. Seafood was outstanding, the service great, and this little spot next to the harbour makes you feel like "holiday".

We have visited the restaurant many times over the years and have always found the food to be good and the service friendly and efficient. Nothing has changed in these respects and we had another nice meal (oyster, mussels, calamari, prawns and hake) on this visit, with the portions generous as ever. The location of this eatery does not provide... More

When an establishment is frequented by locals, you know it is good. Very cozy inside. Warm friendly service and the freshest seafood you can imagine. Don't miss out on this experience.

We were lucky to find an uncooked space on sunday lunchtime at the start of the summer season. The restaurant is fishing, rustically quaint. Service is very efficient and the shared information on the fresh line caught fish was really accurate. The menu is heavily fish oriented and generous portions were enjoyed by all. Cooking was perfect and there was... More

This little gem in the harbour is the best place in town for the real seafood by the seaside experience. Nestled in a container, it creates a unique feeling. Travellers will love it

The was food was a huge disappointment for me. The prawns still had there poop vines in. The line fish(tuna) was dry, under season (like no salt what so ever) and clearly been frozen for a while since it had lost most of its red color. The fried tentacles still had its beaks in it and was fried in old... More

Lovely little spot for yummy battered fish and chips! Nice location - with views of the Hermanus New Harbour. Does get a bit busy with the whale boat clients - so plan around this - go between the trips. Wortha visit.
