BURGUNDY AT THE OLD HARBOUR
The new-look Burgundy restaurant on the seafront in Hermanus has a warm, welcoming and unpretentious atmosphere and simply excellent handcrafted food. Set in the oldest building in the historical heart of the village it also offers the best vantage point for people watching and whale spotting.
This is also where the first wine tasting room in the region was built by Tim Hamilton Russell in 1985 and thus is the origin of the Hermanus Wine Route. Seductive aromas of bread baking in the kitchen and roasted coffee beans blend with salt sea air rising from the Old Harbour just a stone’s throw away. The views are spectacular and diners can expect to have their meal interrupted by breaching whales in season.
The menu reflects seasonal produce from the region, linefish caught along the local coast and the chef’s passion for quality meat prepared from traditional, triedand-true recipes.
The sophisticated and sassy interior décor has transformed the ‘traditional fisherman’s cottage’ into a sensual, classical and welcoming cosmopolitan space with an intimate and relaxing atmostphere. The ideal place to meet, relax, see and be seen, whether at leisure or for business.
