Beautiful setting. Friendly and competent service. Good food and coffee. Wide variety of things to eat. The atmosphere is unique - like something not South African, but still the warmth of our people.

Small French restaurant with a great view. We went for breakfast 3 times during our stay and didn't have a bad meal. A must stop in Hermanus.

Just Pure is a perfect place to come to, for me that is. The food is good, the service is good, the view is good and on a hot summer's day the coolest spot in Hermanus with the breeze off the sea. We have recently had dinner there, their fillet steak diane was one of the best I've had in... More

Excellent, simply excellent. We found it after a very long walk along the coastal path & dropped in for lunch. The soup was delicious so too was the tomato, mozzarella & avocado bruschetta. It was so good we went back for our evening meal. I had venison capriccio to start, the others, prawns - everyone well satisfied. The steak Diane... More

We returned here for a nice lunch at the bay looking for whales. The food is great and the location along the waterfront is nice with not too much traffic in front. A walk along the water afterwards was a great finish!

We took a few coffees over here which were good, Nice place to sit as well. Cosy inside if the weather is bad and if the weather is fine, go sit on the terrace with broad and beautiful views over the bay/sea (and if you're lucky: see some whales - we did n't).

Went into Hermanus for the day and decided to have a coffee here to kick off The day. The coffee was wonderful the service was quick and the atmosphere wonderful. The best part was the view from the Bistro over the ocean.

This was the first and last place we ate in Hermanus, both times for lunch. It's name says it all - Just Pure Bistro. The food is French influenced, simple, hearty, and made from quality ingredients. Both times we visited it seemed to have a majority of locals, which I always think is a good sign. The food is delicious... More
