If you are in Plett Nguni is the place to eat. Sitting in the garden you are well served. The food is traditional South African with a twist. We had the boboti rolls as a starter followed by tuna and ostrich steak. We loved it....More

The Nguni restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying at - and what a find it was. Located a little off busy Main Street, the outside dining area is a small quiet courtyard at the back of the building. The menu...More

Initially the restaurant service seemed slow, and unfortunately maintained that pace for the evening. Food quality excellent - and our table particularly enjoyed the calamari starter. Management interaction very personal, informed and caring. A pity that that meals were confused / messed up by the...More

We were expecting good things based on the reviews read in advance and we weren't disappointed. Nice busy atmosphere but plenty of space between tables and we couldn't fault the service nor quality of food and wines.

Cool spot in a characterful setting with fresh lunch menu and delicious options. Good service. Took a little while to fill up. Can't understand why so undersubscribed for lunch - well worth another visit.

Had a brilliant meal and exceptional service. Amazing freshly baked bread on arrival. Little bit pricey but worth it. The service was so quick that we had been seated, served starters and mains within 35 minutes. Not the average speed of service in Plett.

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!
