Fodor's The Complete Guide to African Safaris
In one of the village's original stone-and-clay fisherfolk cottages, the cozy Burgundy is one of Hermanus's oldest and best-loved restaurants. Not surprisingly, there's plenty of fish to be had on the extensive menu, from prawns and line fish to the specialty of the area—abalone, also known as perlemoen. The jury is out about just how tasty abalone is by itself, so it's usually served minced and highly flavored with other ingredients. Start with the delicate, delicious abalone with creamy mushrooms before you move on to succulent tiger prawns or the fantastically fresh line fish served with lemon risotto, seasonal vegetables, and a lemon-dill sauce. The menu also includes a large choice of meat dishes, ranging from duck to venison, and a good vegetarian selection—something of a novelty in smaller towns. A creamy theme seems to run through the impressive dessert menu. The tiramisu is delicious, and you can even pretend it's good for you, as the menu describes it as "a nourishing dish to be eaten when feeling low."
