Great view of the sea and harbour even saw a whale. Food was great but expensive. Nice atmosphere and a nice place to relax.

My boyfriend and I came here because we were craving seafood and it did not disappoint. We had deep fried sushi to start with and then fish & chips as mains - both were delicious and super fresh!

We went as a group of four girls for lunch. Really quirky fun waiter served us. The wine was Devine and perfectly chilled. Top service. The sushi is the best in town, and by far the best view in hermanus. Love this restaurant!

Sushi heaven! Oh my word. Best sushi I ever had! I also had the fish for mains. My parents had the lamb shank and it was delicious. Hubby had the prawns and he also said it was superb.

Part cave on the harbor. Our seafood diner was fine and the service very good. The ambiance and view is the attraction. Nothing memorable about the menu, but worth the experience.

This used to be a great place but unfortunately now caters to tourist groups mainly. Still has good food and views.
