This was the best food we ate in our visit to plettenberg. I had the spring roll and ribeye steak and both were very well cooked. The service was surprisingly quick for plettenberg restaurants.

Without doubt the best PB restaurant we experienced during a 12 day visit there. Service was excellent as was the food - Prawn and chicken curry and Rib eye steak. The bread served ahead of a meal is often an accurate indicator of what to...More

Really nice restaurant with secluded courtyard just off Main Street in plettenberg. Great staff, service and food. Menu is more basic at lunch, but good range of dishes - fish, steal, salads, soups etc, all with fresh ingredients. Evening menu looks more extensive.

The food was very good, not the best we've had in SA, but only beaten by Michelin Star quality food. The service was very good, thanks to Robert our waiter for recommending the wine, all in all well worth a visit

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!
