Description: The Cuckoo Tree was recommended by a friend. It is an intimate, family run restaurant with a lovely garden, hustling with birds, serving fresh and "soulfood" meals. This "Hidden Gem" is frequented by locals, which is always a good sign when eating out, especially in a foreign country. They are open for breakfast, lunch (Mon-Sat) and dinners (Fri&Sat). The restaurant is also available for private functions of about 30 people and have interesting menu options. Cuckoo Tree is fully licensed, with a reasonable wine list. We recommend booking ahead of time to not be disappointed of not been able to get a table.

Whenever in Hermanus, we have breakfast at the Cuckoo Tree. The service is always great and the breakfasts delicious. The half Craig's breakfast is a sure winner!

Failed to get in here last year and only just this year due to popularity ( well deserved) and slightly limited opening for dinner. Initially had a little hesitation about a restaurant that’s serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. But it seems it covers all exceptionally well, and a further endorsement is the clear popularity from locals and regulars that like us visit each year. It’s a casual pleasant interior, an excellent knowledgeable and friendly team , varied menu with seasonal specials ( loved the stuffed black figs) , and solid well cooked fresh food. Treat yourself to an Irish coffee to finish the evening. For sure we will be back next January, booking in advance!

A quiet secret hidden away in one of the precincts but worth looking out. Great menu at very good prices with friendly service.

The cuddly Lynn and the gorgeous Nicky continue to be garrulous ,gregarious & generally great which is why the food is inventive, creative and approached with appropriate seriousness.
Starters,pea & hock soup,stuffed figs are memorableg
The lamb curry was as always generous in quantity and sublime on taste
Calamari and veges as good as it gets
Wine list ,fairly priced is in keeping with the fare provided
A damn good evening
Gotta give it a week before we return

The Cuckoo Tree despite changing ownership a few years back remains the best breakfast in Hermanus. Food great, service good and friendly.
