“Tops again........and again”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

We visit our holiday home in Hermanus regularly and always try to visit this restaurant. We have a simple criterium for a restuarant 'do we go back?'. Barefoot Cook brings us back every time with good interesting food and wonderful warm service in a relaxed informal atmosphere - there are not many restaurants where I get hugs from both chef and the waiting staff!

“The Best restaurant in Hermanus”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

We absolutely love this restaurant for lunch and dinner. The food is always freshly prepared and of very high quality. Mariclaire and her staff go out of their way to make everyone very welcome. The setting is beautiful and there is a wonderful ambience in the courtyard, especially in the evenings. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough and the fact that it's always full of locals speaks for itself! It really is a gem, don't miss it.

“Bitterly disappointed”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

Too expensive for the dinner overpriced by at least 25% and uncaring service.We had to wait an hour for our food.Food was reasonable quality,but asparagus soup was bland.At these prices we could find a really great restaurant in Cape Town.

“Do not break the glas”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Almost ready to go back to my favorite restaurant in South Africa, The Barefootcook in Hermanus.
Its cuisine is spendid with local flavors and international allure. A open cottage in the middle of town, transformed into a nice restaurant and some shops. Seating outside or inside, depending on the weather, the service is genuine and attendful, special attention is give to the regular guests in a warm and cozy atmosphere. The chef is open to any special wished you might have, vegetarian or Indian. The Barefoot Cook is THE place to eat in Hermanus, I am looking forward to my next visit.
