Decorated with style and laid-back seating in the patio at the back. The food was delicious with typical meat of South-Africa on the menu: ostrich, springbok,... Taste it!

An absolute joy to find a genuine African restaurant amongst a sea of predictability and ennui. Fortunately we booked in advance as it was rammed to the gunwhales even in midweek from the off---I can see why. Reasonably, if not cheaply priced, it offers genuine...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!
