We had dinner with two people, my 24 year old daughter and myself, and it was as near as perfect as it can get. My Springbook filet medium rare was exactly as I had ordered in a reasonably quick time ( no 2 min microwave...More

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.

Very welcoming staff. Our waitress recommend the lamb curry special which was delicious. Perfect setting for a romantic dinner. However the menu has a very small verity and somewhat pricy. Food is great quality and this quaint restutant gives off an African feel.

Very nice restaurant. Super friendly staff. Sat outside on the patio. Starters were phenominal: the mezze and the springrolls, with a splendid African touch. As mains, the tuna and the chicken curry were very nice. Dessert, the brownies... you know you want to! Great value...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!
