Dining at Birkenhead House
At Birkenhead House in Hermanus, world-class cuisine is served in a spectacular setting.
Executive Chef Oliver Coetzee grew up in South Africa’s Western Cape where the cuisine has a strong Malay influence. He’s also had a long time passion for Asian flavours. The culmination of these influences with the abundance of fresh, local seafood makes for a truly tantalising menu.
On offer are homemade breads, ice creams and sorbets, as well as delicacies such as tempura strawberries. Fresh local seafood includes Cape Salmon, Kingklip, Hake, Marlin, Red Roman and Kabeljou as well as crayfish, prawns and mussels picked fresh from the rocks below the hotel.
Soups are a delicious hearty option, with flavours as unusual and exotic as vanilla and butternut. Only the freshest ingredients are used for lavish meals served in your choice of setting: overlooking the ocean; next to our dual level pool; in our glass fronted dining area or simply enjoyed in the privacy of your suite.
Menus and meals can be designed to meet guests’ individual palates and dietary requirements.
