Hot fun in the summertime

Hot fun in the summertime


Posted on Jan 26, 2016

Yes! It has been a wonderful summer down at Grotto Beach in Hermanus. You just have to take a look at the stream of Instagram photo’s posted by patrons to see the good times, reunions, romances and celebrations that were enjoyed and the memories made. The Summer Lounge with its cocktail and sushi bar has been a great hit…and for those locals who hibernate whilst the visitors are here…come and try it out – Summer isn’t over yet! Although our food and service has been showered with praise we have had one or two negative reviews. This is to be expected, particularly over season, but we would like to urge you, should you be unhappy with anything whatsoever, to call for management immediately so that we can ensure that your Dutchies experience is all you expect it to be. We’re delighted to have the SNLjazz trio playing for us this coming Friday 29th January. Maestro Simon Annett is 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. These versatile and extremely talented musicians have performed with musical greats the world over and are not to be missed!! Please remember to book to avoid...

A Calypso of Cocktails

Grotto Beach is gorgeous at the moment!! Spring is certainly in the air and we are loving being open in the evenings again. There’s nothing quite like a walk on the beach, a breathtaking sunset and a cocktail to end the day. And yes…we have a calypso of cocktails on the menu – alcoholic and non-alcoholic. There are the all time favourites like Diaquiries, Mojitos and Bongitos; and we have created a new one for the Summer with Tonic, Peach Schnapps, Mint and La Vierge’s Nymphomane. Come and taste it…and come up with a name for it – your cocktails could be on us! De Tafel van de Chef is fully booked this month so please book now for October to avoid disappointment. Alan Cameron will be playing this Friday from 6pm; we’ll be celebrating Prinsjes Dag on Tuesday the 22nd of September with specials those with a sweet tooth will love; and we’ll be having live entertainment as part of the Whale Fringe Festival at the end of the month. So put on your skirts, shorts and slops and join us for some...

And suddenly…it’s Spring!

And suddenly…it’s Spring!


Posted on Aug 26, 2015

What a range of weather we’ve been having. Spring…Winter…a dash of Autumn, a hint of Summer…and then Winter again. But you know it’s really settling into Spring when the landscape bursts into colour, the Swallows arrive and you can see the whales from your seat on our terrace. Almost every vacant plot in Hermanus is covered in Daisies and the beautiful nature that surrounds us is alive with Spring fever. It’s time to shake off the cobwebs of Winter and get out and about. Celebrate Spring with us. From this Friday the 28th of August we will be open in the evenings every day. As it’s the end of the month, it’s also time for some live music with Alan Cameron and Friends! Join us for Cocktails, sunset and dinner, and some excellent music!! Alan will actually be performing every Friday evening from now on, and he’ll be joined by other maestro’s from Cape Town at the end of each month. The next De Tafel van de Chef is on Thursday 17th September. These evenings are always delicious and delightful…we really get to know the wine and the winemaker…and Chef Jana comes up with dishes that, to date, have been nothing but scrumptious. So diarise (and book your spot) now! Looking forward to seeing you enjoying this beautiful time of year at our very special spot on the...
