Places to Eat in Hermanus

The sheer number and variety of places to drink and dine in Hermanus is a reflection of the leisurely, holiday lifestyle that the seaside resort offers. From sushi to steak, coffee shops to five-star restaurants and classical dining to something more relaxed, Hermanus has something for every taste and pocket.

First time visitors tend to gravitate towards the seafront area in the centre of town where there is a collection of sidewalk cafes, restaurants, pub 'n grills and coffee shops offering a view of the bay. This position allows one to take in the seaside view and people walking along the promenade in search of the whales. The flavours range from typical South African to Mexican and Italian. 

While the seafront is a lively and festive location that comes highly recommended, don’t forget about the restaurants and coffee shops set further back. Restaurants in residential areas have excellent service and superb food to constantly attract their regular customers. Lunches and tea-time treats are particularly well catered for in the central part of town with value-for-money fresh, seasonal food presented daily. It is perfect for a quick snack on the go or leisurely sit-down.

Seafood is a Hermanus speciality and there are many options from some well-known franchises to several cosy, rustic eateries. Most restaurants will offer a line-fish of the day, the fresh daily catch, mussels, calamari and prawns. 

Restaurants close to the Old and New Harbour offer a variety of food with daily specials, seafood and contemporary cuisine to satisfy your palate. Best of all, there are incredible views and outstanding service.

Between town and the Hemel-en-Aarde Village there are some excellent steak houses, mouth-watering pizza palces, restaurants with airy garden courtyards and casual fare. Simply let the tantalising aromas seduce your senses and induce your appetite. 

During the day the nearby Hemel-en-Aarde Valley adds another dimension to dining where one can indulge in food and wine pairings, picnics and exquisite lunches on various wine farms. The wine is renowned in the area and you can swirl your glass to an enchanting view of the valley. What a way to while away the day!

For the classical dining experience in Hermanus there are hotels that offer restaurants with outstanding menus and an extensive wine list. Otherwise for a more relaxed feel to suit the holiday vibes there are informal restaurants with phenomenal seafood platters and some modern, edgy ones for a little something different. There is normally a great selection of fantastic local wines due to the lush vineyards that occupy the surrounding area. There are two Saturday morning food markets that provide the most delicious home-made eats, preserves, fresh produce and cakes. 

The good food and wine is constantly flowing in Hermanus. Nothing quite says your on holiday like a full belly and tantalising flavours that linger even after the meal is finished.
