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

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!
