“We had a truly fabulous dinner at Harbour Rock. Service was amazing (thanks Rudi) and the quality of food was superb, potentially the best meal we had in our two weeks in South Africa. Definitely recommend it to anyone staying in Hermanus.” Michael, TripAdvisor
“Top Seafood. Excellent sushi menu and a fantastic view of the sea. We saw Whales in the bay sipping some Moet. If you looking for a nice view and a good seafood restaurant, This is a great location. Staff were a bit relaxed and friendly, but that made for a long lazy lunch. Good value for money.” Gareth, GoogleReviews
“We had a delightful evening out with exceptionally friendly staff, professional service and good food. We shared a seafood chowder - a flavourful start! Catch of the day was a good portion of grilled fish each, light and delightful. We brought our own bottle of wine which we wanted to taste first and it was promptly opened and poured by the very attentive waitress. Will definitely see you again.” DeWaal, TripAdvisor
