5 of us visited this restaurant just before Christmas for dinner one evening after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. We all ordered something different and all really enjoyed our food. I had the sesame encrusted tuna which was tasty but slightly overcooked and dry, perhaps a sauce would solve that problem, otherwise we had a good night and... More

We received a warm welcome and the staff were very attentive. The steaks were perfect and the line fish was fresh and delicious. Not crowded and enjoyed a pleasant and relaxed evening. Would certainly return!

We arrived to be greeted by warm and friendly staff. The food was very tasty and the portions satisfied two very hungry boys aged 16 and 18! The signature dish, garlic fillet is an absolute winner and served on cauliflower mash it gets a big thumbs up from Banting lovers as well.

The service was excellent and efficient. There is enough parking available. The hot chocolate was unique and delicious as well as the chai laté. Had the "burger with a twist" which was excellent!

Food was exactly as ordered. I had the Thai green curry which was perfect, my wife the porkbelly which was really soft. The waiter was friendly and knew his menu. Great evening.

Great meal, good and friendly service. We were recommend by our guesthouse and weren't dissapointed. Like the fact that menu choices were limited but plenty of variety to chose from.

We visit Eat almost every time we are in Hermanus and have yet to be disappointed. The covered outdoor veranda makes this the perfect place for any weather. We visited on 26th December for lunch. Anyone who can motivate her staff to be both friendly and efficient on a public holiday deserves an accolade. We will be back.
