First night in Hermanus after 2 days of travel, we walked 5 minutes from the apartment we were renting to this restaurant – chose it solely because we liked the name. Who doesn’t like Lemon Butter? We were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. Beautiful presentation, wonderful flavors - unique dishes. Although I had never heard of Linefish, I ordered it – in a Ginger Chili sauce. It was wonderful! A friend ordered the whole fresh fish with Chermoula spice – still don’t know what that is – but it is very, very good. The Butternut Spinach salad with goat cheese dressing was excellent and is more than enough to share. Service was excellent and very friendly, ambiance nice, price reasonable for the quality, worth it at R1200 for 4 which included 2 bottles of wine and the tip! We wish this restaurant weren’t on the other side of the planet—otherwise we would definitely return often!

As I had written a bad report on this restaurant after the last time I ate there I thought it only fair to go back and review again after giving it another chance. I am so pleased that we went again. The staff were friendly and efficient rather than clueless and the food was delicious. We had the seared tuna and the baby king clip and both were fresh and cooked to perfection. The tempura prawns as an appetizer were piping hot and again delicious.
So full marks Lemon Butta. Maybe the problem only arises in the high season when Hermanus is full of tourists.

We arrived without a reservation, on a busy evening, no sweat. The management found us a table without any drama. Naturally the tables with the view over the bay were taken. The menu gave us a wide selection and our dinner was really enjoyable, with a pleasant bottle of wine, and when the time came to pay, we were pleasantly surprised how reasonable. Thanks for saving the day, we will be back and will book for a table with a view.

It was just a day trip to Hermanus this holiday, and we decided to try Lemon Butta for lunch. Firstly the view is amazing! The food was also very good, we opted for sushi and tempura. Both very good and fresh. Service was efficient and friendly. A good wine list with a reasonable by the glass selection. Very reasonable prices for the quality of the food.
Have been to several restaurants in Hermanus and this is one of the best
