Overlooking the cliffs of Hermanus and surrounds, The Pavilion honours the bountiful Overberg region. As with all of the restaurants under the umbrella of The Collection by Liz McGrath, The Pavilion displays a distinctive regional identity. The menu’s delicate and intricate dishes, paired perfectly with locally produced wines, reflect the Overberg and its distinct flavours and terroir.
This glamorous, edgy restaurant boasts beautiful views over Walker Bay, while the striking black-and-white checkerboard floor is resonant of 1920s glamour, linking all the elements of the restaurant’s interior design. A delicate houndstooth fabric covers the Carver chairs, while a black floral print introduces a softer touch.
The centrepiece of the restaurant’s interior is the glass wine cellar. Centrally situated, it demands the attention of the guests, appearing to make the individual bottles float under the twinkling,star-like LED ceiling lights.
The Pavilion also serves as the breakfast room at The Marine. An incredible spread of fresh fruit and freshly-baked patisserie confections are laid out each morning, and hot breakfast options are served a la carte.
The Pavilion is open for dinner five nights a week (Tuesday to Saturday), and with the possibility of spotting a whale from your table between June and December, breakfast is a great idea any day of the week.
