Best Malay curry I have tasted (and in a seafood restaurant!) - so hats off to the chef! We took friends few nights later and they all wanted to try the Malay curry - unfortunately there were only three portions.... which were all deemed delicious.... Great place for a night out.

The service at this restaurant is warm and friendly and the food was delicious. We had lunch at a very expensive hotel, Birkenhead House and hands down Fishermans Cottage for half the price was miles ahead. These people know what they are doing, the combination of great food and excellent service is a winner. The lamb curry was the best I've had, even in comparison to some top Indian Restaurants, and my husbands fillet steak beautifully cooked. The chocolate mousse dessert excellent. Oh and the 70's music set a very relaxing tone for our evening out. We have eaten at a lot of upmarket Restaurants in SA and this little gem is a winner. Enjoy!

I had a lovely meal here and highly recommend the mussels and the fish and chips. The batter on the fish was the best I've ever tasted and the chef was kind enough to come out and tell us how he made it. This restaurant has a real homely feel and a must if you are in Hermanus.
