Bientang's Cave

The restaurant's name refers to the last Koi Sandpiper who lived in this cave in the early 19th century. A woman with spiritual forces as the story goes could talk to the animals and that is why the whales return every year. Something we like to believe.

This international award-winning restaurant is beautifully situated on the cliffs of Walker Bay in Hermanus and is known as the best whale watching restaurant in the world. The restaurant is famous for its bouillabaisse soup and the 'fish of the day' which is grilled on an open fire. The à la carte menu offers a variety of seafood dishes, specialties daily and several delicious desserts

Bientang's Cave is known to combine its hot and cold dishes, consisting of oysters, shrimp, mussels, squid and fish of the day (line fish) to your own idea.

Opening hours
Lunch 12:00 - 16:00 (all year round, weather permitting)
