Celebrate Easter at The Marine in Hermanus

The Marine in Hermanus is marking the Easter holidays with a lunch celebration on Sunday, 17 April. Popular with locals and visitors alike, the hotel is a landmark of warm hospitality and relaxed sophistication in the heart of the popular coastal town and is known for its mouth-watering cuisine prepared by Executive Chef Rudi Blaauw and his team.

The Easter lunch menu comprises four sublime courses served in The Pavilion Restaurant, overlooking Walker Bay. Begin the epicurean journey with a dish that nods to the surrounding, ever-stretching ocean vistas – Cape Malay Pickled Hake with romaine leaves, heirloom tomatoes and a baby hot cross bun. From there the Duck Liver Parfait shines as the next course, served with cherry jelly, pecan nuts and challah. Roast Lamb is a show-stopper main course and to finish things on a sweet note, Raspberry Eaton Mess is sure to delight all diners. Vegetarian options are available too.

Out of towners may wish to extend the celebrations to a sleep-over or Easter mini-holiday, making the most of the public holidays. Bed and breakfast rates start at R7550 per room per night and include a complimentary minibar. The views from The Marine are pure magic, with the famed cliff path leading past the hotel to the tidal pool below. Perched on rugged, ocean-hewn cliffs, the unique location of the hotel offers sprawling ocean views with frequent sightings of dolphins, whales and an abundance of other marine life all-year round.

Bookings are essential. Easter lunch: R425 per person. Contact Restaurant Reservations on 028 313 1000 or email guestrelations@themarine.co.za .
