The food here was nice enough - steak was cooked perfectly but as neither of the sauces offered were to my taste it was definitely missing something. I had asked if a garlic butter or bearnaise could be provided but nothing materialised. The service was...More

We had a meal at Nguni recently and having read the reviews our expectations were high. However after waiting some considerable time for our starters and having sent back 2 incorrect starters I have to say that we were either very unlucky or the place...More

Nguni is tucked away just off the Main Street, I would guess the best restaurant in Plettenberg Bay, lovely decor, modern and with a nod to Africa. Waiting staff are very pleasant and professional. The menu has a good range of local dishes and a...More

Pleasant welcome and excellent service. Cosy but not crowded (although most tables in use). The food was exceptional and reasonably priced. Good wine, also at attractive prices. Thoroughly recommend you visit this restaurant.

The location is excellent, every detail is accurately designed, the atmosphere is at the same time classy and cozy, the food is outstanding and the service superb... What a pity we were in town only for a day!

The menu is small but there is enough of a variety to please a diverse group. My choice was the beef fillet, served with a mushroom cream sauce and roast potatoes - excellent. The dessert was not quite to the same standard but overall we...More

Nguni Restaurant Nostalgic with an African flair, Nguni is located in one of Plett's oldest buildings - an original dairy dating back over a hundred years. Nguni's African menu is a reflection of traditional selections like Bobotie, game, biltong, springbok, Karoo lamb, ostrich and other local favourites. With its beautiful sunny veranda or eclectic African interior with its original wood-burning stove, the Nguni Girls provide customers with a unique setting and superb menu. A true taste of the Cape!
