We booked three months ago. We had dinner tonight and were seated inside which was good but we left feeling disappointed. We are in SA for 6 weeks and have dined in some wonderful places but this place is in danger of being left behind....More

Pleasant food, and a reasonable wine list, but recommend you arrive early to get a good table, as it’s a lottery whether your table is in a good part of the restaurant or not. Service is acceptable but nothing special. We both had the specials...More

Went as a group of 4 to this restaurant and really enjoyed the whole experience. The waitress was faultless, a blonde lady who was clearly very competent. Would return.

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!
