Inspired by the gentle art of brewing beer that is crafted instead of manufactured, Marc de Maudave Bestel saw the need to open a taproom brewery and restaurant in Hermanus and create a local beer that would be synonymous with the gentle lifestyle of Hermanus and the sound of the whale song sung.

    We are so happy that we found this gem and will definitely return and also recommend it to others. The atmosphere will make you want to spend the day there. It was difficult to choose what to eat, as everything looked and sounded delicious. The restaurant was very busy, but not full. Our waiter struggled to get to us and never cleared the table in the three hours that we spent there. We would have liked to order more drinks, but since he was hard to find, we went without. The kids play area was interesting (although the trampoline had several springs loose and can be dangerous). We could see the kids the whole time, the kids' food came in a little box with a juice box and some sweets, they loved it. Make a booking, it is a popular place. The online booking actually worked well. We are looking forward to our next visit.

    The starter was really nice but a bit cold. The mains meat was delicious but the veg was underdone and the potato bake was extremely overdone. Dessert was awesome. Overall a good experience.
