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.
Stellenbosch Contemporary restaurant
Guardian Peak is essentially a winery - with a restaurant. From entering the farm, following the road through the vineyards and finding the restaurant nestled against the breathtaking backdrop of the Helderberg Mountain, one will soon buy into the “living the lifestyle” concept that drives this establishment.
If it’s modernity that one seeks, then Guardian Peak will certainly meet expectations. The open plan restaurant boasts a demonstration kitchen, allowing guests to experience the energy and synergy that takes place in a professional kitchen. The menu’s contemporary interpretation of ‘wine with food’ pairing (and not the other way round) leaves no room for ignorant choices when it comes to marrying food with drink.
The menu, which is seasonal, is wickedly extravagant. Besides a fare of traditional venison and lamb, patrons will be hard pressed not to succumb to temptations of Courgette & Goats cheese soufflé, Roasted Apple and Raisin Pork Belly or Quail Breast stuffed with bacon and sage.
Soak up the South African sunshine on the terrace or feel right at home with the warmth of the fireplace in winter, either way Guardian Peak is a great lunch location.
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.
