This is billed as an “African” restaurant, and we thought we would try it this trip. Well, the décor is fairly African, but the menu seemed pretty standard South African fare to us, so we enquired. Apparently the presence of game (Kudu and Ostrich that...More

Lovely surroundings, welcoming atmosphere. Very good food, touch expensive. Simple, but varied menu with good service. Midweek, looked nearly full, not noisy though, good sign, discerning clientele?

We stayed in a local guest house and the owner recommended it to us and booked the last table. How lucky we were. It was a lovely restaurant and busy too. The meal was superb, great atmosphere and a snip at £40 with wine.

We came here spontaniously in bathing shorts on our road trip. All other people were clothed more fancy. Even though we got our table and enjoyed great steaks (ostrich / springbok) and delicious spring rolls. Staff was very nice.

After eating mostly fish our whole holiday we decided to try a meat restaurant. We weren't disappointed! Wine by the glass was good, meal was very good. Waitress was friendly and efficient.

This is a lovely relaxed restaurant. My siblings and I ate dinner here. I ordered steak- which tasted excellent, so chewy and cooked well. My brother ordered Springbok (South African national animal) which was even nicer! It's a dark brown meat, served with beetroot. I'm...More

Went for Valentines Day dinner, which may have contributed to the disappointment. Very, very busy night. Felt understaffed. Long waits and staff seemed a bit overwhelmed. Didn't think the food was particularly special either, no better than many of the restaurants we ate in along...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!
