Perched on the rugged cliffs overlooking a historic tidal pool, Hermanus’s seaside restaurant, Ficks, beckons as a rare culinary gem, where each visit promises to win over diners with the charm of its small coastal town.

Ficks is just a quick two-minute drive from the Hermanus Waterfront. The restaurant is tucked away, with its entrance subtly peeking out from the roadside. Descend a broad stone staircase to discover a tidal pool embraced by wooden decks tracing the curves of the cliffs.

For accessibility, a ramp connects the car park to the decks, accommodating wheelchair users with ease.

The tidal pool, constructed in the 1920s, remains a beloved destination in the Overberg, drawing countless visitors. It has evolved into an idyllic retreat, particularly perfect for a sun-drenched day at the whale coast.Ficks  restaurant offers a social dining experience centred around tapas-style dishes meant for sharing.

Drawing inspiration from the Basque region of Northern Spain, particularly pinchos – small dishes served on skewers – the menu is crafted to encourage conviviality and exploration. The crispy prawns, flash-fried calamari with romesco sauce and salmon ceviche are crowd favourites.

There’s just something poetic about seafood served at a restaurant with the ocean at your feet. Ficks is also a natural amphitheatre for whale-watching from August to November.
