We really enjoyed our dinner at Nguni. We chooses the starters like tuna carpaccio and root beet goat cheese salad. Very good. After that we enjoyed our steaks. Finishing touch with the Nguni Mess. Perfectly.

For this excellent and centrally located restaurant a reservation (for dinner) is recommended. Excellent food completed by a great variety of wines and a superb service.

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!
