We came here with a bit of trepidation but our food was excellent - the bobotie spring rolls followed by springbok were excellent. Terrific local pinot noir as well on the list - our waiter, Stuart, was a top guy. Left very happy!

We sat in a lovely patio area with heaters and enjoyed some African specialities – Bobotie spring rolls, springbok, ostrich steak (which was wonderfully succulent and cooked to perfection). The lemon meringue for desert was ok but couldn’t compete with the one our boutique guesthouse...had served as an afternoon treat earlier in the day. Nice evening.More

There are many excellent restaurants in Plett, but this was our favorite. Relaxed but romantic ambiance. Excellent menu selections all tasty and well prepared. Tuna steak done pink just as I ordered. A good wine selection and helpful attentive service

Nguni doesn’t have fabulous kerb appeal, but we’d been told it provided excellent steaks - so we booked via the web. As it was a bit of chilly wet night, we reserved an indoor table - although when we arrived in seemed like lots of...guests were dining quite happily outdoors. The restaurant’s interior was very contemporary & very nice too. We were immediately taken to our table without any wait. Service levels were very good - so menus & drinks arrived very promptly - we were looked after by a guy who I think may have been the owner - he was very knowledgeable & advised us of menu options. The food was delicious and arrived very quickly indeed - the steaks were first class and we had to share a dessert because we couldn’t manage one each!! Thank you to the Nguni for a lovely meal - when in Plett we will certainly visit again. Pricing was some above average for the area I’d say - but still very decent value.More

This restaurant I haven't been to in 10 years after a screaming child at the next door table ruined my experience . It is expensive and the food is good but I would not say the quality matches the price. I chose the line fish...which was kingklip grilled on a bed of baby tomatoes. The price was R320. There was no starch served with it and I left hungry as a result. The only steak on the menu was fillet if you exclude the venison. We asked if there were any other beef options and my guests chose rump which was more expensive than the fillet. Eventually they had rib eye after the rump ran out which was served with roast potatoes for just under R300. Sauce and vegetables are extra. The restaurant was filled with 80% foreigners which is great as they were getting good value for their euros. Us not so much..More

Tuna tartare absolutely delicious. Fillet was excellent. My husband had the rump which was quite fatty but tasted good. Loved the roasties. We were at the later end of the evening but service got slower and they started drying glasses next to our table. This...is surely a no no when people are still being served?More

The food was absolutely incredible. We had the ostrich carpaccio and beef spring rolls, followed by the springbock and beef fillet. The meat was melt in your mouth, one of our favourite meals whilst in South Africa. Incredible flavours and great service.

We were in Plett for 3 nights and ended up eating here 2 of them. The food was incredible and the friendly service on the first night from Kelly really made us want to return. Try the Springbok, the Babouti spring rolls to start with...the upside down lemon meringue to finish. Totally delicious. Couldn't fault it. If you can't get a table in the garden, eating inside is just as atmospheric.More

Delicious food served by a lovely waitress. Certainly service with a smile for our evening and lots of information and recommendations about the food and wine. We tried the Ostrich starter, followed by Linefish for the main and the beef fillet. It was all lovely...and I’d recommend the restaurant if you’re in the area. Pretty restaurant setting in an interesting property and a must do when in Plett. Many thanks to the staff and the chefs we had a super evening.More

Fantastic Birthday meal at Nguni. We decided to go to Nguni at the last minute to celebrate my birthday. Fortunately we were able to secure a table. The service was fantastic, all 3 meals delicious from the starters to the puddings. The wine was fabulous....Highly recommend. We were last at Nguni years ago and somehow it didn’t feature in our radar. The meal was the best of our annual holiday. We will definitely return more often.More
