Individual , authentic interior - does not appear touristic . The food is of a really good quality , more classical than the attempt to produce something extraordinary.

After being in Hermanus and Wilderness where we were rather disappointed after being spoiled at the winelands, Nguni exceeded our expectations. We had a great starter with the Mezze platter and squids and as a main course beef and ostrich fillet which was very tender!...More

There wasn't as much game on the menu as I remembered from my last visit, but the springbok I had was well cooked and presented. Good choice of starters and desserts as well. It was busy, so there was a bit of noise, but that's...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!
