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!

We visited Nguni restaurant twice during our stay Best food in Plettenberg Bay hands down. The ambiance and service faultlessly executed by Robert. The fish tasted like it came straight from the ocean OUTSTANDING. The steaks were melt in the mouth tender and the ostrich...perfectly executed. The prawns were sublime crispy fresh and delicious. Honestly we travel all over the world and this restaurant is 5 star!More

Ate at Nguni twice in one week and would make it our weekly local if lived here. What a superb restaurant. Understated 5* quality. Food not overly fussy whilst still managing to be interesting and quite simply, outstanding quality. We ate prawns, steaks, baguettes, ostrich,...line fish (genuinely fresh, which we didn’t have the pleasure of experiencing at other restaurants in Plett), scrumptious desserts and wish we stayed longer to work our way through more of the menu. We are an intensely fussy group when it comes to food and service and can’t recommend Nguni highly enough in every single category. Thanks ladies for incredible food and Robert, your service is wonderful!More

This restaurant is lovely. Hidden away and sadly quiet, but I reckon the pandemic explains a lot of it. Awesome food. Go there
