Thank you to Matthew and Pedro who helped us to change our car's flat tyre, without us having asked for help. You are stars!

Had a great lunch overlooking the ocean below. Friendly service and the paprika prawns delicious! Local Herolds wine great too. Perfect spot for lunch on a warm sunny day. Easy drive from George and worth going to. Nice to go down to a great beach too at Herolds Bay.

A very busy restaurant during peak season but out if season very pleasant also. A chilled relaxed vibe with good food. The ribs and calamari are excellent

Been there today with a search on restaurants with sea view in George and what a view. Hake and Calamari to perfection. Ribs bit to cooked. Phillip's service was great and we did not wait although we were a bit demanding. Four star due to the ribs.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Dutton's Cove Restaurant in Herold's Bay. The views are spectacular. The seafood dishes were very good and the wine list is also great. The service team was understaffed and therefore overloaded but they apologised and made every effort to look after us well. A nice place to eat and definitely recommendable.

Dutton's cove has a laid back atmosphere, with a spectacular view of Herolds Bay. Our food was delicious, and the service was friendly and efficient. Definitely a restaurant that I can recommend for everyone.

We were, once again, so disappointed in Duttons Cove! The waiters refused us entrance to the open seating area at 10h51 (Jan 1), as they only opened at 11h00. Although there were people seated at 2 tables, they refused any entrance as they claimed they cannot accommodate a lot of orders at 11h00 and we were advised to wait in... More

This little hidden gem has great and good quality food to offer. The view from the stoep makes the whole meal unforgettable. Its hidden from the big rush of Herolds Bay, which makes it a added bonus.
