We hope you’re having a wonderful Summer so far! We’re loving it down on Grotto Beach. Whether it’s a hot, sunshiny day or a misty morning, or even a bit drizzly…it’s BEAUTIFUL!We’ve been getting some fantastic reviews from people from all over the world on TripAdvisor. This is always such a boost for the team. Thanks to those of you who’ve taken the time to share your experience! Summer is rocking the lounge The trial week of our new Summer Lounge has been so successful! Have you tried it? Oysters, sushi, bubbly and cocktails; on the beach; with shade…Summer comfort!! Our standard menu is not served in the lounge, only in the restaurant and oysters and sushi are exclusive to the lounge area only. Take a look at these pics of people loving summer in the lounge! We’re so looking forward to a Christmas feast and to Manouche swinging us into 2016. New Year is full up…but you can put your name on the waiting list if you’d like; and there are a few spots left for both Christmas lunch and dinner. Have you spotted our Big Boy? Vincent is having a wonderful summer scooting around on the Dutchies Big Boy scooter! Have you seen it? Orange is the best colour for him, of course! Lovely to see familiar faces and so many people enjoying Hermanus and the glorious Grotto beach. Yes things are certainly ‘Beachy’ here. Looking forward to welcoming you at...

To get you into the swing of Summer we have THE most fantastic musicians playing this Friday 27th November! The extraordinary SNLjazz trio are seriously musicians of note! They play across a range of genres; have performed with musical greats the world over and are not to be missed!! The versatile and EXTREMELY talented Simon Annett on drums; Luke Townsend on saxophones (yes – he plays tenor, alto AND soprano!) and the gifted Congolese pianist, Nelson Malela, who adds a magical touch to whatever genre he is playing. Just read their bio’s and you’ll know that we are in for a treat! Simon Annett Nelson Malela Luke Townsend The weather is looking fine, it’s month end and it’s just about time for the Summer holidays…so dust off your dancing shoes and come and celebrate with a sunset, cocktail and scrumptious dinner. There is still some space for Christmas (lunch and dinner) and for New Year’s Eve but please book as we are filling up! The talented Cape Town band, Manouche, will be swinging us into 2016 with their toe-tapping, hip-shaking gypsy jazz and together with the unique mouth-watering menu Chef Jana has planned, this is definitely going to be a New Year to remember!

Excitement always mounts as we move closer and closer to Summer at Dutchies. It is an absolute treat to come to work right on the beach when the days are balmy. All our locals are out and about enjoying the beach, the surf, the dunes, the cliff paths and sunsets. We also love this time of year because our patrons tend to “pop in” more to enjoy tea, sundowners and milkshakes. In between serving our patrons we’re hard at work planning for the busy Summer season and our Christmas and New Year celebrations. Even though the festive menus have only just been finalised we already have many bookings – so please be sure to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment! It is the last week of the month which means Live Music on Friday! Palm Strings will be performing from 6pm. Hieperdepiep Hoera!!! Summer is on it’s way! We’re so looking forward to seeing new and familiar faces...

First the whale festival, and before you know it – Christmas! We’re delighted to be starting off the Whale Fringe Festival celebrations with Manouche. Once again the response has been amazing and there is no doubt that Dutchies is going to be swinging on Friday night! We are SO looking forward to seeing you all! There are some wonderful shows and performances on the Fringe this year. Treat yourself to a night or two out on the town and celebrate – spring, the whales, the promise of summer and our beautiful town. Our Dream Team has devised a delectable Christmas Menu. The fantastic feast has all the tastes and textures of Christmas – turkey, pork, lamb, mustard, berries, nuts, chocolate, ice cream and fruit cake – presented and prepared with a twinkle of special Dutchies magic.
