Went to nguni on vacation in Plett, and wow, loved it. Small, owner-run boutique restaurant situated in an old house. Simple, fine food done with care, passion and style.

Seemed to date from a previous era, but that might have just been the dinner guests! Good food and service. Very central.

A bit overrated, the inside salon is stuffy (as in no oxygen) and the patio is a bit ordinary. Waiters are top-notch, and food is a bit plain.

A charming little restaurant in the middle of Plettenberg, in one of the oldest original buildings in the town. Small number of tables, very nice decor and the food was really good and good value. The staff were helpful and efficient. Upmarket, recommended.

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!
