Dutchies restaurant is situated directly opposite of Grotto Beach. Grotto beach is one of the most striking South African beaches and has Blue Flag status. With a picturesque view of the ocean, the backdrop of Olifantsberg becomes illuminated as the sun sets. There is no doubt that Dutchies is surrounded by the exquisiteness of nature.

Owned by Joke Gonggrijp and her son Daan, their desire is to share the many experiences this unique spot has to offer with you. Not only is the view truly breathtaking, but the menu offers a range of dishes from freshly cooked seafood, a touch of Dutch cuisine, tapas, sushi and an extensive cocktail and wine list.

Our staff is our family. We believe that if our staff are happy at Dutchies it will resonate in their work. When visiting Dutchies you will experience a casual and homely atmosphere along with fantastic service and real food made with pride and love. Our aim is to instantly make our guests part of the Dutchies family and make every customer feel like they are home.

Apart from our daily menu, our chef also prepares a variety of special dishes every day. So if you're not in the mood for your usual, be sure to check out our specials board.

Our waiters work together as a team who assist each other to ensure that our guests receive the best possible service and have a memorable and pleasant experience.

In Hermanus you may experience all four seasons in a single day. When the sun hides behind the clouds and the rain pours down, you can still cosy up in front of the fire at Dutchies and forget about the cold.

Grab your favourite warm beverage and spoil yourself with a Dutch treat such as our homemade Stroopwafels or Wentelteefjes.

Come rain or shine, Dutchies and it's team are always at the front door awaiting your arrival and eager to make you feel right at home.
