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.

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

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.

Small tucked away restaurant. A place to go smart casual rather than casual. Service bordered on formal but a good knowledge on the menu and contents. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Food was minamilstic but flavoursome. Recommend the fillet steak and the ostrich fillet. Reasonable cost although...More

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

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!
