The venue is very close to the ocean which is really great however the setting depicted by the website is rather deceiving since it provided images from a temporary sushi bar which had been located on the sea shore which had since been closed. Nevertheless the environment was OK and nothing that truly made me want to return again. I... More

Excellent location on the beachfront overlooking Blue Flag Grotto beach in Hermanus. Service and food very good. Well presented, tasty, generous portions. Freshest line fish. Fair selection of wines.

Beautiful setting lends to a long unrushed lunch served by lovely people. The food was delicious and the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.

Dutchies is probably a much better restaurant during the day by virtue of the fact that it sits on a beautiful beach. That view probably makes the food (and the prices) go down a bit easier. As a place for dinner (with a view of darkness rather than sand and ocean), Dutchies was okay -- neither horrible nor spectacular (I... More

Since one of us is Dutch, we could not resist popping in for a bite and a drink. Good quality Margerita (not easy to find nowadays) and well prepared snails (also often ruined by so many establishments). The Dutch croquettes and the bitterballen were of good quality and authentic... a very pleasant treat before enjoying a lovely stroll on the... More

I ordered the special Asian prawn salad (photo posted) of the 6 tiny prawns in a salad costing R180 which containing lettuce, a few tomatoes, slivers of radish and a garnish of onion. It was tasty but so incredibly overpriced for what arrived that we had to check with the waiter and manager that the order was indeed correct. The... More
