Velddrif Seafood restaurant
Die Vishuis Restaurant is situated on the bank of the Berg River, in the West Coast town of Velddrif. This restaurant was once a real 'vishuis' where the fisherman used to salt the harders in big tanks. What remains of those days are the sea shells in the original sand walls, portions of which have been uncovered.
This quirky little national monument has been kept appealingly genuine, complete with open beams and a long stoep where you can eat seafood as well as other scrumptious dishes and enjoy the flamingos, pelicans and herons because this is a major wetland area.
A restaurant called Die Vishuis must of course have a scrumptious fish and seafood menu but this is not all that is served, Herman who has 31 years experience in the hospitality trade has put his wide experience to good use, creating seasonal and interesting West Coast dishes.
You will be made welcome as you arrive at the door. After being shown to your table your friendly waiter will help you select your meal from the menu and if needed will call Herman for any further assistance if required.
Being a small intimate restaurant we are able to create personal service for your enjoyment and relaxation throughout your meal. Guests are welcome to bring own Wine and Beer along - no corkage charged, as we are not licensed yet.
Claremont Indian restaurant
This small, quaint restaurant serves delicious Indian cuisine in an unpretentious, yet warm and homely, setting. Add attentive, quick service and you can be sure of a diamond in the ruff.
The menu offers everything you would expect of an Indian restaurant, but the dishes have a distinct South African twist to them. A favourite is the classic Butter Chicken, melt-in your-mouth chicken smothered in a mild, creamy sauce infused with just the right amount of spices. For the more adventurous there is the Durban Lamb Curry, a bit hotter than most. Seafood lovers can enjoy a delectable prawn curry and the Tandoori Chicken is a must. The dishes are served with soft, fluffy, aromatic rice and the traditional sambals.
Finish your meal with a proudly South African malva pudding, just to add to the decadent flavours.
Perima's is open for dinner on Sundays and Mondays and for lunch and dinner from Tuesdays to Saturdays.
Hermanus Seafood restaurant
Quayside Cabin is not your average restaurant. This fresh seafood eatery is a transformed shipping container with an array of eclectic items placed all over. Quayside Cabin has the most envied location in Hermanus, with prime positioning in the new harbour overlooking the activities of the harbour and ocean.
This is a causal and charming space where the service is friendly and banter is encouraged. Apart from the pleasant service, this is most certainly the best place to experience fresh fish and catch from the harbour straight into the pan. With the limited space available, it amazes one how effortlessly this type of quality of food is presented each time.
Come rain or shine, Quayside Cabin is open. Summer days are spent enjoying the sea breeze and in winter the blinds are lowered and heaters strategically positioned for a cosy meal.
Seafood is what’s on the menu so don’t head to the harbour if you are looking for a rare steak. Split a platter to taste all the starters, choose one of the hot pots, or pick the best fresh-off-the-boat fish dish. Kiddies have a small selection of meals to cater for the whole family.
Lunch: 12 noon - 4:00 pm, Monday to Sunday;
Dinner: 7:00 pm - close, Monday to Sunday.
