This restaurant is virtually on the Blue Flag beach and the location is absolutely stunning. The new management have revitalised the restaurant and one is greeted by charming, vivacious and knowledgeable staff. More importantly there is a new chef who would put many chefs in fancy restaurants to shame. The standard of food has soared. The menu is varied and one can even have white mussels from the beach in front of the restaurant. We had luncheon and sat outside in glorious sunshine. We ordered a drink and complementary home baked cheese biscuits were served. We requested filet steak, one medium and one medium rare. They arrived just as we wanted them and served with an excellent mushroom sauce which was obviously made in the kitchen and not some concoction out of a bottle or a packet. The fried potatoes were crisp and freshly cooked. For desert we enjoyed Venetian kisses which were mixed ice cream with different coatings and pierced with a stick. The coffee was perfect. The restaurant is a delight at any time of the day and in the evening one can sip cocktails, or have a meal, and watch the sun go down. The ambience is very romantic. We live in Hermanus and if you enjoy good food and a lovely atmosphere then this is the place to be.

Yes it does have a nice setting,but that's the only good thing about Dutchies.If you want cold,overpriced,small portions then go.
If you want to then be insulted by the staff when you comment on your food then go.
Dutchies must have the worst service in South Africa...believe me!

Dutchies is in a fantastic location - you can sit on the terrace on a warm evening and watch wales as the sun sets. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and that really adds to the experience. The thing that kept us coming back though during our visit to Hermanus was the food which was light and interesting; there is a lot of frying in South Africa and Dutchies is not one of the fryers, although all that sort of thing is there if you want it (and jolly nice too but not so good for the waistline!).

Because of the atmosphere, service and food we have no hesitation in giving Dutchies the highest rating. We've not rated special occasions because we had no experience.

Went for lunch on Sunday. The roast beef and veg was lovely. The fish was the freshest, tastiest I have ever had. The calamari strips were soft and tastety.
Owner Yoke and manager Brendon, were most helpful and friendly. Clive, the waiter, friendly and professional. Will definitely go back there again.
