Seaside Delight: Ficks Restaurant at Grotto Beach, Hermanus Pinchos Paradise with Panoramic Views

Welcome to the rejuvenated oasis by the poolside! Ficks, a renovated gem in the historic Hermanus landscape, now boasts an exhilarating new restaurant experience. They’ve revamped this space, bringing forth a unique culinary haven situated at Grotto Beach, Hermanus. Meet Joke, Daan, and Just Gonggrijp, the brains behind this Dutchies-owned venture.


This eatery specializes in Pinchos, drawing inspiration from Northern Spain’s delectable cuisine. Crafted by the culinary prowess of Chef Fadzi and Sous Chef Susan, each dish bursts with flavors, embodying their dedication and creativity. Dive into their menu and gallery for a sneak peek into Ficks’ offerings.



The beauty of Ficks lies not only in its gastronomy but also in its panoramic vistas. Nestled on the edges of Ficks pool, their wooden decks offer an unrivaled view of the boundless ocean and its captivating surroundings, complemented by the rhythmic crash of waves. Keep an eye out during late winter; you might catch a glimpse of the majestic Southern Right Whales, their oceanic pals.


However, this alfresco paradise operates under the whims of weather, remaining closed on rainy or windy days. Reservations and private events aren’t on the cards at Ficks. It’s a first-come, first-served rendezvous.
