Perlemoen offers fresh, local abalone and sea views

Try a local delicacy while looking over the Old Harbour in Hermanus

Last updated: Monday, 30 May 2022

Perlemoen, in Hermanus, is the only restaurant in the country that specialises in serving freshly caught perlemoen. This new eatery is set on the water's edge in the Old Harbour and connects diners to the town's history through its food.

LEARN ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE OLD HARBOUR

The Old Harbour, which was the first abalone hatchery in Hermanus, was declared a national monument in 1970 and later proclaimed a museum. The Old Harbour is near the town centre, surrounded by other restaurants and markets.

FEAST ON FRESH FISH AND LOCAL ABALONE

Perlemoen offers a verstile, evolving specials menu dependent on which fish is caught or when another abalone dish has been created. From tuna ceviche, yellowtail carpaccio and Perlemoen Koekies to the “Old Harbour” affogato, you’ll want to experience them all. A must-try is the Perlemoen Benedict: a toasted muffin served with creamy abalone hollandaise, topped with bacon crisps.

WANDER DOWN TO THE WATER’S EDGE

Take a stroll down to the harbour's edge: you’ll discover the Old Harbour is now a space where locals and visitors can come to connect to its history through fresh abalone whilst enjoying some of the best views Hermanus has to offer. Situated in the rock face, with waves crashing just a few steps in front, it’ll make the steep climb back to the top worth it.
