From the outside, you'd hardly know it was there but once in, the restaurant is quite spacious, with a very pleasant outdoor terrace as well as comfortable indoor area. Staff were extremely welcoming and the service was very good - as was the food and...More

Not the cheapest but certainly amongst the best eating in Plett. If they have the springbok it is so tender and cooked to perfection. Chef knows what he is doing. Also recommend the tuna carpaccio and the meringues. Service excellent and professional.

8/2/17 South African style restaurant. It is situated in the commercial center of The Plett on a side street with parking in the front. It is a cosy, not to big place, without a view. Staff very efficient and smiling. Dishes of good quality. Can...More

The food at Nguni was really nice, with very good service. We had the tuna carpaccio and the Nguni beef, perfectly cooked. Make sure to get a table outside.

Description
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!
