Heritage Restaurant is situated in the old village of Hermanus, South Africa. It is a converted fisherman’s cottage and part of the Misty Waves Hotel. Offering sea views from the outside tables, this was our place of choice for dinner.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the restaurant offers a small menu which should cater to everyone. To start, Kim and I shared a portion of calamari (R90). It was served with a side dish of salsa and tartar sauce.
For mains Kim chose the Fillet Béarnaise (R199) with the sauce on the side. It came with a portion of chips and Kim added a side order of vegetables (R42). I decided to have the Steak Tartar (R199) which might not have been the best choice. Mincing the beef fillet does not give the same textural experience as hand cutting. I did however like the fact I could add the condiments to my own taste.
Dessert And More
I am a sucker for crème brûlée (R55) and so did not resist ordering this for dessert. It was not the best I have ever had, but it was tasty. Kim had the dame blanche (R55) and gave me a taste of the Belgian chocolate sauce which was really yummy. The service was great but keep in mind the kitchen closes at 21h00. By 20h30 we were being pressed to make a decision about desserts. The bill, including gratuity came to R750.00

It sounds lovely, Tandy.
It was pricey, but good.
