We had dinner on Nguni as recommendation of a typical south African restaurant where we could try national dishes. Well, its true, we could try different food but always prepared in an 'fusion' and 'international' way. The starters were nothing special, but the main dishes...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!
