“Reliably good food but beware: service times can be frustrating”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I've eaten at this restaurant for years now as I holiday in Hermanus and Stanford most years.

The staff are great in that they are really friendly and helpful. However the service is not especially speedy so be aware of this if you're in a hurry for any reason. I normally ask for my bill at the same time as I order pudding. It's also worth paying in cash if you're an impatient type like me since paying by card I've noted adds considerably to the time taken. I suppose the upside to this is that the staff would not mind too much if you lingered for ages after your meal.

Happily, the food is reliably good and generally tasty. The pecan pie is fantastic, as is the apple crumble. I've had most of the breakfasts and lunch and they have all been good, particularly the smoked salmon wrap.

“Good food, friendly and helpful staff!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

On recent trip to Hermanus, I visited Savannah on a number of occasions, and every time really enjoyed the food! Had a lovely toasted cheese sandwich, served with a very nice salad, and served on my choice of bread - ciabatta. On one of the other occasions, also enjoyed some cinnamon pancakes, while my sister had savoury pancakes. The waiters are very friendly and helpful. A cosy restaurant close to the beach and shopping centres. Prices are also not over the top, and the atmosphere is really pleasant.

Great food on menu with a variety to choose from, love the breakfast. Staff very friendly, good service. In the centre of town. If you are hungry or thirsty after shopping, this restaurant is easy to reach.

“Good coffee stop”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Nice breakfast and excellent coffee. We sat outside which was great, but we seemed to have been 'forgotten' as service was a bit slow. Would like to go back to try their dinner menu sometime.
