We spent the weekend with friends and they decided to have lunch at Fisherman's Cottage. The place is attractive in a very rustic way. It is centrally situated and very near the little market area. We sat outside as the weather was pleasant. The welcome was warm and professional and the service was good throughout. The food was good :... More

We had an amazing meal at Fishermans Cottage. The place has a really nice atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and explained the menu. The fish curry was absolutely amazing. It had plenty of spice and lots of taste the sort of curry I have dreamed of. The wine was nice too. We had a lovely evening.

Still serving the best seafood in Hermanus, in our view. We recently visited twice in four days. The first visit was faultless, however the second time the staff were seriously over stretched but a table of 20 guests. We waited and waited, but fortunately the food was worth the delay. The seafood curry, as well as the fried calamari hit... More

We really enjoyed our evening here. We sat outside the cottage, drank some white wine and enjoyed our fish and seafood. The dishes were tasteful and freshly made. The mussels in white wine were very good as well as the fish soup

I heard so much about this restaurant, but found it was average. However, the ambience is lovely. I would return!

We enjoyed supper twice in one week at this cosy little restaurant. The staff are kept very busy but are always friendly and attentive. The fish is so fresh and perfectly cooked. It's best to book if possible as it a busy little place , but if you are prepared to wait for a table you won't be disappointed.

We booked this for our first night in Hermanus. The booking via the website did not work but sensibly there was a warning that no confirmation meant that the booking would not have got through, so we then emailed direct and had a very prompt response. We ate inside and started with the bowl of calamari strips for sharing -... More

Probably one of the best restaurants in Hermanus. The menu is interesting, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and the superb food made us immediately book for a second dinner.

Having been in SA for over ten days and having eaten at a whole range of places, I can honestly say that this establishment is poor.A chicken and mayo toastie at a fuel station was more flavoursome! Mussels in milk which should be cream was a new idea but gross! Warm local wine is also poor, an hour and 15... More
