Great starters, brilliant deserts and a small but interesting winelist on board. Main courses options were very limited. Chicken ballotine was beautifully presented. All 5 of the party agreed the deserts were amazing and best course. The summer salad, kidneys and trout blinis all fab. Wished I could have tried all the starters. Maybe I was expecting too much but... More

Havercrofts was an interesting experience with a husband and wife team running the restaurant. The food was tasty and there was a good selection on the menu. I recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Stanford or Hermanus.

Havercrofts in a small cottage on the edge of Stanford is no ordinary village restaurart. Innes at front of house and her husband/chef Brydon are quite unique. Innes with her ready wit and quick repartee hides a very professional approach that rules the roost but encourages her friendly and efficient staff. Brydon's cooking is sublime and worth my biannual visits... More

I love Havercrofts!!! This was my second visit & enjoyed every moment. Innes runs the floor & she is loads of fun. Brydon serves good honest food nothing complicated but well executed.

Really beautifully cooked food in an intimate but informal setting terrace al fresco under shade of an ancient vine with a charming view across the mountains Fun friendly patronne entertains as well as explains each dish from a small tight menu that changes weekly and seasonally The owner/cook Brydon is a master in seasoning and favouring each dish perfectly, everything...

I love Innes cheekiness, and the relaxed way she deals with customers. By coincidence the dish that I chose on my previous visit was on the menu again, the pasta with olives and artichokes, and it was as good as the last time. I actually can't believe that I managed to eat a 3 course meal, but I did, and... More

Perfect for relaxing lunch on patio with view of countryside. The owners are warm and friendly. Try the amazing salad and Kerala fish curry.
