Thank you to Lizette and her team for a fabulous meal. This was our third visit as a family to Lizette's Kitchen during our holiday in Hermanus. A warm, friendly atmosphere from the moment you enter. Greeted by Lizette each time, we really felt looked after. The food us delicious and caters for all tastes in our family, including g a gluten intolerant Dad, Mum allergic to seafood and vegetarian teenage daughter. Artisan flatbreads, Vietnamese/Asian fusion meals, and daily specials...something for everyone. Waiter, Tom, attentive and friendly. Tombi (the friendly PR dog) added an extra special warmth to the restaurant, plonked in front of the roaring fire. Lizette went out of her way to make our son's 12th birthday dinner extra special. We can't recommend Lizette's Kitchen enough! Thank you.

A friendly welcome by the owner who explained the menu and food style. They offer a wide variety of different food types but there is definitely an Asian influence. Interesting decor, lots of quirky things like a huge 3 legged pot which has been converted into fireplace.

Our waiter was pleasant and we have no complaints about the service. Good coffee and yummy cheese cake completed my partner's meal after he finished a generous size eisbein, cooked to perfection. I chose the 2 course lunch special that consisted of fried hake and chips, (was not too bad) and an unusual bread-and-butter desert which was not what I expected but most enjoyable.
Lovely area outside under the tree, must be great on a warm day, also kid and pet friendly. It is ideally situated when passing through the town out of the main drag, easy to access. Next time we will stop for breakfast.

The Bottom Line: They just can't make breakfasts like this outside of SA.

Okay, the service could have been a little snappier. However, putting that to one side, the food was excellent. It's the type of meal that sets you up for the rest of the day with a big smile on your face.

Looks like a lovely restaurant but had one drink and left. Feels formal and stiff, no atmosphere even on a Saturday night. Service average.

Thank you for your review. I was actually in the bar when you and your two friends arrived and sat at the bar during the first half of the rugby game. I totally understand your viewpoint and would agree were not really a party type of bar. Although on any given night we get a good crowd in we still have to make the balance between a restaurant where you can have a quite romantic meal and being a bar. What you might find stiff and formal others might find relaxed and understated. Also the age of the crowd watching the rugby and in general for this establishment is 25 - 45 and over.
