friendly staff. Good food and very good coffee. All in all a pleasant experience. Nice ambience and you feel welcome. A nice place to take clients. The Camembert starter was exquisite - one can order a double for a main course I think :)

A real hidden gem with beautiful views, laid back and friendly service with a great choice of lunch for all the family. I'd say we'll be back soon but sadly only passing though. Highly recommend a stop here if you're passing by!

Really love this place .... Casual, friendly and just hits the spot. Their love for dogs makes it for me.... Demonstrates their kindness and openness. Ambience cool and a place to visit for sure. Never fails to impress 👍🏼

Good food and friendly service. Nice deck area to watch the sunset. Not a great selection if you enjoy your gin like I do

We spent a short evening at the Red Herring, sitting up on their roof top terrace. We noted the following: The staff was super nice, attentive and helpful. The view was quite nice, although not as stunning as can be the case in Noordhoek. The...More
