Bientang’s Cave Seafood Restaurant & Destination venue is a very unique restaurant set in a cave with terraces on rocks above the ocean.

Created out of a traditional cave previously inhabited by a Koi Strandloper of the same name, the restaurant spills out onto the rocks of Walker Bay in Hermanus, where Whale Watching is the preferred local pass-time. The rustic charm and natural ambiance of the cave and it’s surroundings is a delight to all our patrons with many returning year after year to sample the delights of Bientang’s Cave.

With an abundance of sea and bird life as well as Dassies for company, this exquisite setting is heightened by the freshest seafood and an award winning wine list (Diners Club Diamond Award).

And, should you be a non-seafood(ie), they do offer meat, poultry and vegetarian dishes to satisfy any palate. Reservations are always advised as the location, quality of food and ambiance attract visitors from across the globe throughout the year… however, should you be passing and the aroma’s drag you down our stairs, they do have a cocktail bar where guests may enjoy a drink whilst waiting for a table.
