Bientang’s Cave Restaurant and Wine Bar is a buzzing, family-friendly tourist destination perched on the whale-watching shores of Walker Bay in Hermanus.
The restaurant is known across the globe for marrying a unique dining experience with uninterrupted, snap-worthy views of the ocean. Visitors can even spot some whales during the season, or impromptu pop-ups from local birds and Dassies.
Their menu offers some of the Cape’s finest award-winning wines alongside a selection of traditional seafood, meat, poultry, an assortment of vegetarian dishes and decadent desserts. Highlights include seafood curries and traditional-style potjies, Cognac flambé beef medallions, and Bientang’s Bouillabaisse, their signature twist to the Marseillaise classic.
Reservations are highly recommended, and the restaurant is also available for special occasions.
