Welcome to your good food destination in Hermanus.
We may live without poetry, music and art
We may live without conscience, without heart
We may live without friends, we may live without books
But civilised man cannot live without cooks.
He may live without books- what is knowledge but grieving?
He may live without hope- what is hope without deceiving?
He may live without love- what is passion but pining?
But where is the man that can live without dining?
Most people visiting The Burgundy, on the very edge of the bay and only a few metres away from Hermanusís historic old harbour, always come back. Once you visit, which we hope you will do soon, you might well return because here you will be greeted by not only the warm smiles of our staff, but also, quite possibly, the smell of artisinal bread baking in the oven.
Almost all the ingredients our chef uses are sourced from small local farms in the area and the wines on our wine list are from the wine farms in the region. The menu has been redesigned along the lines of Jamie Oliver and Nigel Slaterís style of cooking. You will be delighted by our unbuttoned approach to food and atmosphere. In the same way that food expresses our philosophy of simplicity and quality, the atmosphere is unostentatious and relaxed.
