The restaurant is split across the entrance corridor with no outside aspect, which is a shame as the other restaurant in The Marine (closed in evenings) has lovely sea views. All staff were helpful and friendly. Found the menu a little pretentious, however dishes ordered were very nicely presented. Good fish and chips and good value for a top hotel.

As it was busy we struggled for reservations but then found we could get in at the Marine...panic, could we afford this. YES we could, in actual fact the restaurant was very reasonably priced for the quality of the seafood. Lovely surroundings, comfortable, good friendly service, great food. Need I say more

Amazing service. Friendly, welcoming, happy staff. All the dishes were freshly prepared in the open kitchen. We could sea our food being played up. Very tasty indeed and beautifully presented. A fabulous place for a beautiful romantic dinner. We lived it.

The Marine hotel is a stunning location. The restaurant is a the front of the hotel and has been set up so that some of the tables are in a room that has access to the sea view. Unfortunately this means the food has to be brought in across a corridor and through glass doors that when open cause a... More

When we arrived did the Food and Beverage Manager welcome us and was he not sure of our booking and after words apologized because he did not keep track of time. The restaurant was not busy and only a few staff members was visible. We had a very pleasant waitress but she disappeared and the Food and Beverage manager took... More

The restaurant is quite small, so it is best to book in advance. The service was excellent, with attention from both the Manager and Waitress. Unfortunately they had run out of Oysters (it was Sunday evening to be fair) so our first choice wasn't available but we were very happy with the alternatives.

Really great, awesome food!! Especially the Thai fish cakes! But not so good wine list. It was a special occasion for us, and we should have brought our own and just paid the R50 corkage. But we will definitely go again. Thank you guys.

Normally I'm not too keen on hotel restaurants, however booking at the restaurant at The Marine was not a mistake. The food was excellent, as was the service. Sadly on the Sunday evening we were there we were only 1 of 4 tables so there was little ambience, but that did mean we had the almost undivided attention of our... More

We usually take our overseas guests for lunch. We have never had anything but very good experiences beginning with the quality of the food and the level of service. It's just a special place and if Rick Stein, the famous BBC chef enjoys this place, It's always a safe bet in what can often be touristy Hermanus food scene.
