12 Aberdeen Street
The Barefoot Cook Restaurant is a quaint bistro in the backstreets of Hermanus. The picturesque and tranquil courtyard offers alfresco dining in summer and in winter a cosy room with wooden floors and open fireplace.
The ever changing menu is seasonally inspired and creatively conjured by the owner and chef, Mariclaire. All meals are made with the finest ingredients and freshest herbs available from her garden. European peasant food with a dash of fusion and creative license is what forms the basis of the menus. The kitchen stock pots simmer constantly; these stocks are the cornerstone to an excellent dish.
The courtyard is well suited for all types of functions from wedding receptions to birthday parties. These private functions can cater to up to 50 people, and will be held on any day of the week. Menus can be created with Mariclaire to suit the guest.
