About
The Global Village is an work of art from the Gate through to the gallery. We have a collection of unique gifts and curios from all over the world, including gorgeous silver jewellery. The beautiful gardens and dams set a tranquil mood, you can watch the Koi fish swim gracefully in a hand crafted pond. There is a restaurant and a playground here which makes it suitable for every person from children to the elderly. Our business is about 20 years old and the experience can be felt from the banana trees to the heritage of the Old Post Office and the Art Gallery it houses. We invite you to visit us and have a magical shopping experience.

Quiet visit

After lockdown businesses are picking up very slowly. The business was really not busy. Very few people but lots to see. Many beautiful art and crafts. Variety of everything. Outside needs attention. The pond a bit full of stuff that could be removed. Hope that the workers can come back soon.

Tranquil escape from the crowds and good pizza
Dec 2019 • Family
Great place to relax, browse the quaint shop, walk in the gardens, get car washed, and grab a bite to eat. Excellent coffee and pizzas - large with thin base - and topped off by fast and friendly service.

Such a quirky, quaint and unique spot in the heart of Plett!!! Could spend hours in the curios shop that has a huge variety of hidden treasures!! Make sure not to leave without having the restaurant's succulent burgers... Paired with an ice cold beer!

An early breakfast!
Sep 2019
We arrived a bit before opening time, but the manageress was quite happy to prepare a meal for us... didn't see any other staff around, apart from the gardener! We sat indoors, in the sun but out of the wind and had a view from the window of the stunning gardens. I looked around the store whilst I was waiting for the meal... which didn't take long to arrive at all! Replete with having had coffee and a tasty breakfast, I could then continue with my retail therapy. All in all, a pleasant experience!

a bit disappointing as we felt like nobody took note of us in the shop...
May 2019
I took a group of 38 guests to this place, and the women told me that they felt like they were not seen, as for this day at 11.30am the staff was unpacking stock, and felt like we were in their way...pity and only 2 guests had a drink, as no one bothered asking anybody for about 20 minutes into us sitting outside, waiting for service...

came upon this place on our way from Robberg island. The staff were very friendly, tried their delicious mixed berry (not too sweet) iced tea and had a relaxing lunch amid magical gardens with plenty of activities for the children.

Restaurant has gone downhill
Apr 2019 • Family
We’ve been coming to Plett for the past 25 years, and have always gone to the Global Village and see it as one of the iconic memories we have when thinking about Plett. We haven’t been back for 5 years but are now here on holiday, and after a long walk around Robberg nature reserve (which we CAN recommend) we thought, let’s go to the Global Village for a milkshake and some cake!

We arrived (only 4 cars in the car park which was surprising) and sat down when the waitress came over. I asked her if they did milkshakes and she shook her head - no. Apparently the milkshake machine was broken!! Then we asked if we could have some cake - they only had one slice of carrot cake left, and wouldn’t let us see the cake we wanted to eat - normally you see the cake on display which entices you to choose one, but it was hidden which we found strange?!

We ended up leaving after asking to speak to the owner - who was too busy on the phone to even come and speak to long time customers who are now disheartened about this place.

NB this is not a reflection on the shop, which I believe is not connected to the restaurant.

Culinary magic in a lovely garden setting
Jan 2019 • Friends
The new restaurant at Global Village is a wonderful surprise - and a great place for lunch. We’ve been twice now, and the gourmet wraps are fantastic! Beautiful presentation, lots to please the tastebuds, and all in a relaxed garden between the lily ponds. Excellent value!

A hidden gem!
Jan 2019 • Family
This place was highly recommended to me. A souvenir shop with many beautiful treasures. A stunning fairly new outdoor restaurant - best eating happens in nature! This restaurant is all about healthy conscious eating and is the first of its kind that I have stumbled upon my travels on the garden route. The wood This place was highly recommended to me. There is a souvenir shop with many treasures and a restaurant which is all about healthy conscious eating. Their wood fire pizzas ar They make food according to your likes and personality... So special! The veg and herbs are straight from their garden which is so fresh and amazing! The gorgeous garden and relaxed family orientated atmosphere is a must to check out.
