Bientang's Cave, Hermanus

Below Marine Drive (next to Old Harbour)
South Africa
Tel: 27 28 312 3454's insider take:

Tucked into a seaside cave and with an outdoor deck just 35 feet from shore, this might well be the world's best whale-watching restaurant. (Be sure to visit from May to December, when pods of southern right whales pass through Walker Bay.) The prix fixe and à la carte menus are tailored to every appetite. Don't miss the seafood specialties, like the traditional South African dish of grilled Cape snoek (fish) in a caramelized apricot sauce, or the rich house bouillabaisse. The homemade Malva pudding is a must for dessert. Reservations are essential.
