When Passion meets Purpose!

When Passion meets Purpose!


Posted on Mar 8, 2017

February, known as the month of love, has been a special month for us at Dutchies! We had the privilege of hosting an Awareness and fundraising week for the Overstrand of Association of Peoples with Disabilities (OAPD), which has been such a wonderful success! In collaboration with Lighthouse to Lighthouse, we were able raise over R 40 000 for OAPD. We are delighted that we had the opportunity to live out our passion at our work , we will keep you posted about OAPD Awareness Week 2018! Our Summer Lounge will be open until after Easter, because of its popularity we have decided to host another festival, the Late Summer Festival! Be sure to come visit us for sushi and cocktails with the view of one of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town!  The festival will be filled with tastings, art and photography exhibitions and music! Have a look at the festival schedule here.  One guest had this to say about the lounge:   Have a look at our video below to entice you some more!  Dutchies Cocktails and Sunsets  ...

Whales…wonderful whales!!

Whales…wonderful whales!!


Posted on Sep 29, 2015

The celebrations have begun and, we know it’s cliched but, everyone in Hermanus has been having a ‘Whale of a Time’. Including the whales! By popular demand our new summer cocktail is called the ‘Triple D’ as suggested by Floris from the Netherlands. The suggestions were all so great that there are 2 runners up who will also receive cocktails on us. We were delighted to host the managers of some of the Blue Flag beaches; the Mayoress; the Minister of Tourism and a bevy of local stakeholders for the 2015 Blue Flag launch. It is an honour to run our restaurant on one of the best beaches in the world! Grotto Beach received an additional accolade because it has received Gold for 15 years in a row. Did you know it is also one of the few Blue flag beaches that have beach wheelchairs? Cocktails and Milkshakes Our new cocktail is named ‘Triple D’ (Delicious Dutchies Delight). Thanks to all of you who voted in the restaurant and in our online poll…and congratulations to Floris who suggested it. The suggestions were all so wonderful that we’ve decided the 2nd and 3rd favourite suggestions should also have a cocktail on us – Japie Louw and Sara De Villiers – that’s you! There has been a noticeable increase in our kiddie clientele and we suspect it could be the milkshakes. The kids don’t seem to be able to get enough of them! So if you’re craving a cool cocktail or a marvelous milkshake…you know where to come! Looking forward to seeing you all enjoying the Spring season, the festival, the whales and wonderful Hermanus. Remember that we will be screening all rugby matches from the World Cup Rugby 2015 that the Springboks are...

Daan was lucky enough to go on a flight over Walker Bay and take these pictures. Enjoy them – they’re from a perspective that most of us don’t get an opportunity to see.   Post by Dutchies @ Grotto Beach Hermanus...
