Food was a little disappointing. Steaks overdone or too rare. Service was good, coffee and desserts excellent

One of the best of the downtown restaurants. We had a good meal, nicely presented. Our server was very attentive. Good choice of dishes, nice atmosphere. Booking essential in the summer.

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!
