A premiere league Hermanus restaurant that always delivers. Drinks in the bar overlooking Walker Bay is splendid and Origins is a crisp and not too formal restaurant which does a great fish and chips to cray fish and a seafood curry are all great.

Our meal of beer battered fish and chips was beautifully cooked. Service was good and our table was perfectly located overlooking the bay.

I enjoyed two starters as I am a small eater but they were both delicious. Service was excellent. You need to reserve a table.

I had planned a visit to the Marine as part of my return trip to Hermanus this year thinking I would eat in the Pavilion restaurant and have the wonderful service and white table cloths of previous years. Was a bit dismayed to find this no longer open in evenings but we went to Origins and I have to say the service did not disappoint. I ordered 2 starters the sublime fish cakes in a spicy sauce with stir fried veggies then a cheese souffle with some salad. A couple of glasses of bubbles to go with it was great. Sadly no room for dessert. I did notice others having fish and chips and deep fried things so they still do that which was the staple fare of this restaurant if you enjoy it. Pleased they have not forgotten those of us who recall the fine dining type experience too.

We shared the soufflé which was light and fluffy, just as it should be. The roast beef was really good; beef was tender, good selection of vegetables, crispy Yorkshire pudding and extra gravy. Yum!
