Description: Lemon Butta is one of Hermanus' best-loved restaurants, boasting the best sushi, delicious seafood and perfect grills. With breathtaking views of the entire Bay, it is also one of the best places for whale watching!
Reviewed 8 December 2013

I visited Lemon Butta last week working my way around the menu and would definitely say it is one of the best restaurant meals I've had...

I tried to visit on Monday but could not get a table without reservation, but managed to book the best view in the house for Tuesday night overlooking the bay where I'd been fortunate enough to watch Whale mother and calf 2 hours earlier.

The service is excellent - thank you Colin for making it a great evening.

The Mussels to start were fantastic, the baby Kingklip was cooked to perfection (it should be noted that a baby Kingklip is enough as a meal without a starter), the Amarula Creme Brulee which I took home was divine.

It was noticeable during the meal that there is a happy team looking after you at this restaurant - from the owner Paul and right through a very professional waiting staff.

Thank you...

So good I went back the following night for fishcakes and calamari... equally great.

Went for a year end "supperclub" function & was very unimpressed. Service was extremely slow, & although some had great food -all fish, quite a lot of the meals were very small portions for the price. I had the chicken & prawn curry & it was terrible. Spicy hot, but no tasty, chicken was as dry as a bone & the prawns were like rubber. Portion size was totally unacceptable for the price. To save spoiling the atmosphere, i did not complain, just left my food, which nobody even questioned! Should not have bothered though, as atmosphere spoilt by kitchen staff fighting, long waits & being told that there was no cream for the coffees! Sorry, but not going back!

We were a group of friends celebrating a birthday and we had a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 deserts. Everything I had was fantastic, from the calamari-starter to the main course - the steak was done to perfection (medium-rare), their wedge potatoes tasty and crisp, the cob which was also ordered by the others were complimented by all and was a decent sized portion. All the deserts looked and tasted devine. Definitely worth a visit.

Wonderful and friendly service from Colin who had taken our reservation and given us a great table by an open window with views over the sea to a thunderstorm in the distance. Lovely food, unusual staters and we both had fresh line fish which was delicious and beautifully presented. Lovely buzz to the place with unobtrusive live music.
