The atmosphere; brilliantly split between a few diverse area, our table felt intimate, yet part of the restaurant. A difficult task for most restaurants. The menu; full of... More

Popped in spontaneously with a group of 8 for a late lunch and were treated to a delightful meal and very pleasant service. Surroundings are very informal and unassuming; the food is top notch.

We were staying close by and te restaurant was recommended by the owner of the lodge. We did not have great expectations as it was simply the closest place to eat, but boy we're we blown away. Fantastic food at great price and a superbly nice service. I'm sorry we have to move on in our trip and can't stay... More

As local people from Hermanus, we love going eating out once a week and testing all the restaurants - what a splendid outing to Eat! The food is really of the very best in Hermanus - the interior not fantastic , but if you go for food - the best! Service also good!

If you are looking for superb food that is not going to break the bank visit Eat in the Hemel and aande Valley. Steaks done to perfection and vibe and service is excellent! Will definitely visit again!

We received awesome service and excellent dishes. The atmosphere was lovely and I liked everyone from the chef to the waiter making sure everything was to our liking. They made our anniversary so pleasant and it is our favourite place for sure now.

Stayed nearby and stopped in here after a long day more out of good fortune rather than good planning. The food was great (the pork belly a higglight) and the staff could not have been nicer. Was actually asked if we would like a break between our starters and main which I have never had in South Africa before. Worth... More

My wife and I visited for dinner tonight. From the booking through to the paying everything was great. My wife had mushroom rossoto and I had Thai green curry - both tasty and great value for the price. The service was very good and the log fire made it warm and cosy. The seating is very comfortable and the outside... More
