Whether it’s the rustic charm and roaring winter fires of the restaurant or the freshly baked pizzas straight from the wood-fired oven and cooling cocktails bidding farewell to the lingering sun, The Red Herring caters to all.
Although famous for its homemade thin based pizzas (which are crafted by hand individually to order and cooked in a wood-fired pizza oven), there is also a wide selection of other dishes ranging from seafood to steaks and lots in between (including several vegetarian and low carb options!). The downstairs Red Herring Restaurant has a cosy country-style by the beach feel, with a large fireplace for those cold rainy winter nights. The garden pergola area adjacent to the restaurant is sheltered from the wind and is ideal for afternoon gatherings of friends and family.
The newly-renovated Beach Road Bar occupies the top floor of this popular gathering-place. When you aren’t watching a sports event on the TV or jostling for real estate around the fireplace in winter, head out to the deck and savour the breathtaking sea view. The view from the deck stretches from Chapman’s Peak, across Noordhoek beach to Kommetjie lighthouse and on to Slangkop Mountain. This is when you reach for the extensive menu of beach-chic cocktails and wait for the sun to set right in the centre of the view.
