The Harbour Rock restaurant – known to the locals as simply The Rock – is situated on the top of the cliff overlooking the bustling Hermanus harbour. This is the ideal setting to take in the breathtaking two-hundred-and-eighty degree sea views across the bay; a view that is surpassed only by the restaurant’s ambience and highly acclaimed menu.
Owner, Francois Barnard, conceived the ingenious idea of building the restaurant on what is one of the most spectacular restaurant sites in South Africa. The building was designed with artful precision by Andrew Greef and was built, in 1997, using stone, steel and timber.
Francois, together with general manager Vaughan van Blerk, and an exceptional team, run a premium restaurant. Acclaimed by locals and tourists alike, this is a restaurant that draws people back to Hermanus time and again.
