About Origins @ Marine
Origins have crafted a menu that offers relaxed social dining in the comfortable surrounds of a modern kitchen-focused restaurant. Whether it is tapas, natural wines and craft beer or a full sit-down dining experience you're after, you'll find it at Origins.
At Origins Small Plates pays tribute to the social act of sharing. Shoots, Stems & Leaves takes inspiration from the earth; local, seasonal produce delivered as complex, delicious salads. Our mains and sides are Hunted and Gathered; each ingredient reflecting our surroundings. Desserts with local flavour bring The Sweetness, and artisanal Cheeses of the Region round out the menu.
Our ‘Chef's Blackboard' will introduce at least 3 new daily dishes to reflect the season, and allow us to champion the exciting fresh produce we find.
Fantastic food, Great service Wow !!! 😊😊😊😊😊
The restaurant felt over crowded, not with diners, but with staff. With five waiters serving us, my order arrived at my table incorrect. I’d love to recommend this establishment, but there are many restaurants in our area that simply does it better.
We decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Origins after hearing good reviews. We were not disappointed. Our host Sam and waitron Antoinette were friendly, efficient and well trained. We enjoyed the springbok tataki for starters, kudu loin and line fish for main. They were beautifully presented and delicious, sincere thanks to the chef. Sam surprised us with a friandise platter at the end of the evening. We had very enjoyable anniversary dinner. xxxxx
Posted to Tripadvisor A lesson: do not judge a reataurant on one bad experience! In the past two weeks I have learned a very valuable lesson: do not judge a restaurant on one, even two bad experiences. Last week I had one of the best bowls of grilled Squid ever at a restaurant a friend of mine refuses to frequent because of something he did not like on a visit 2 years ago. The 14th January is our wedding anniversary. The 14th being a Monday posed a problem...many of the restaurants of note are closed! Against my judgement, but remembering the lesson I learned the previous week I reserved a table at Origens. What a good decision! The Personel so friendly and helpful. Our starters-a Tuna "salad" and the Bouiabaise delicious. The mains- Prawns tempura with rather chilli noodles excellent. The only problem I have, as with many resaturants in the Walker Bay area is the absolute exhorbitant wine prices eg a bottle of Raka Biography selling for R120 in a wine shop, being sold for R350! However, a wonderful experience on a very special day in our lives
Service was faultless
We had an awesome lunch once again! Thank you!
Great evening. 1st class service.
Thank you to Origins and Tronelle for a fabulous prize evening! It was a true treat!! We have been raving about the food to all our friends... wonderful mixes of flavour and textures and delightfully presented...my foodie son had no complaints! The staff were all very friendly yet professional and the venue very chic but comfortable. Thank you!
This is an excellent restaurant preparing interesting and well thought out meals. The wine list is a little expensive due to the considerable mark up on some wines, but the choice is good. Service was generally attentive and competent.
It was an experience out of this world one I will cherish for ever. From start to finish everything was just perfect 5 star service. Thank you.
Beautiful singing by the staff. Food good.
On my way back home in the car I had a phone call from the Marine accusing me of having short paid my bill by R100.00.That was not true. I never expected an insult like that from the Marine.
Great location. Good service.
Enjoyed two dinners at Origins. Excellent menu, food beautifully prepared and presented. Mussel starter and tempura prawns for main both particularly good. Lovely restaurant with good service. Would recommend, we certainly hope to return.
Very enjoyable. Nice atmosphere & food & service top notch.
More options for wine by the glass. The food was excellent and your staff works hard! Your bookings are spaced well apart, presumably to allow your chefs adequate time per table, but this means the early eaters are pretty lonely! Service was very friendly and good but the coffee took a long time to come. Overall, an excellent evening. Thank you.
Food was very Nice and service excellent in very beautiful surroundings
Everything was superb! We cannot wait to go again.
This is a very special place and the service and food are amazing. Tronette is a treasure!
A lovely experience and a very good meal. My only complaint is that the menu has remained the same for some time -some changes/new additions would be welcome.
There were not any specials available and our waiter left halfway through the meal. The wine selection is not great, the atmosphere is not very warm and inviting and on the whole the experience was a bit mediocre.
The evening was pleasant
We had a lovely evening - delicious food & great service. I mentioned the dinner was for my mother-in-law's 60th birthday and it was a very special touch to have the chef send out an extra little platter of sweets with "Happy birthday" on the plate. We will most definitely be back next time we visit Hermanus. Also a lovely lounge for a sundowner cocktail!
