In true fusion fashion, the food at Birkenhead House & Villa is a delicate mixture of modern African Cuisine, traditional French techniques with strong Asian and Italian influences.
On offer are homemade breads, ice creams and sorbets and fresh local fishes ranging from Marlin, Red Roman & Kabeljou to crayfish and mussels. Soups are a treat, and you can enjoy flavours ranging from vanilla butternut to roasted red pepper tomato.
Lavish meals and seafood delicacies are served at Birkenhead House in your choice of setting: the patio overlooking the ocean; the courtyard next to our dual level pool; the glass fronted dining area; or room service will happily oblige you with a sumptuous meal in the privacy of your suite.
Birkenhead Villa boasts a separate kitchen with a dedicated chef on hand to meet your culinary wishes.
Discover why Hermanus is world-renowned as South Africa's premier whale watching destination when you embark on an unforgettable voyage around Dyer Island. Nature lovers can lose themselves in the beauty of the lush mountain trails and walks, and study the indigenous bird life.

For those who crave a more adrenalin-filled experience, shark cage diving is available, as well as quad bike riding, sea kayaking and scuba diving. [All with associated fees]
