The Highwayman Restaurant

Our fully refurbished restaurant, The Highwayman, is deservedly popular with both holidaymakers and locals.

Come and enjoy a warm welcome, relaxed atmosphere and delicious home cooking with a view of the waves.

Our menu has something for everyone at prices you’ll love: tasty starters, juicy steaks, flame-grilled burgers, classic English dishes, fish, pasta and plenty of vegetarian options, plus a daily selection of specials.

Sweets, puddings and daily dessert specials, plus tea and coffee, are also available.

We source everything we can from the area around Hermanus, using fresh ingredients from local farms and fisheries whenever possible.

During the summer season we are open:
Lunch 12pm-3pm
Evening 5pm-9pm Monday-Saturday
Booking is recommended at this time

Out of season we are open:
Friday & Saturdays 5pm-9pm

Our Sunday Carvery is available throughout the year:

On Sundays, our normal lunchtime menu is replaced by a traditional carvery served in our large function room with unrivalled panoramic views of the Winterton dunes, valley & sea.
