The restaurant has a spectacular vue. There is a small hope that a whale will jump up, even it is a much better chans with a boat trip. The food was good - perhaps the sushi/rocks would have been better, it looked delicious. We had a lunch with tuna and a miniplatter with linefish scuids and prawns. The service was... More

We had a nice meal at this restaurant. It was recommended by our B&B. I had the fish curry, which was excellent and my wife had the Kingklip which was also very good. The service was attentive and knowledgeable. The ambience was good.

We are Hermanus locals and my husband and I decided to dine at Harbour Rock for a date night. Our reservation was made for 18:00 so when we arrived the whole restaurant was still pretty empty. We informed the lady at reception that we have a reservation and she searched for our booking in two books and it couldn't be... More

Good food but average service. It appeared bookings not staggered so puts huge pressure on kitchen. A table of over 20 people ordered same time as us and our sushi took 1 hr 30 to arrive. Poorly managed place and they were so outgunned many things were forgotten. Go for the food but make sure you go outside Peak time... More

Great views, good fresh seafood and friendly service. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, however the service was a bit slow at times. Lovely lively atmosphere.

We always receive the warmest of welcome greetings. The menu, although not extensive, is so good! The setting is magnificent. The staff is well trained. It is always good to go back there.

Sushi really good here, but main course of prawns was uninspiring, but nothing wrong with it. Easy walking distance of Harbour View Guest house.

We had a delicious meal here. Recommended by the owner of the guest house we were staying in. I could not decide what to have and opted for sushi which was excellent, fresh and innovative, beautifully presented. The rest of my party had fish which was perfectly cooked. The food took a while to arrive, but we were in no... More
