Owner run and managed by Natalie and Jaqui, this charming little place is tucked away in an historic restored building in central Plettenberg Bay. Their comprehensive menu includes the best steak, and fish in town, not to mention the most brilliant Capprese I've ever eaten....More

We had a lovely experience at Ngunis. The service was very good and professional, although we felt a bit rushed with hardly a break between starters and main course. The food, especially the beef steak, was superb.

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!
