Not the cheapest but certainly amongst the best eating in Plett. If they have the springbok it is so tender and cooked to perfection. Chef knows what he is doing. Also recommend the tuna carpaccio and the meringues. Service excellent and professional.

Small tucked away restaurant. A place to go smart casual rather than casual. Service bordered on formal but a good knowledge on the menu and contents. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Food was minamilstic but flavoursome. Recommend the fillet steak and the ostrich fillet. Reasonable cost although...More

8/2/17 South African style restaurant. It is situated in the commercial center of The Plett on a side street with parking in the front. It is a cosy, not to big place, without a view. Staff very efficient and smiling. Dishes of good quality. Can...More

The food at Nguni was really nice, with very good service. We had the tuna carpaccio and the Nguni beef, perfectly cooked. Make sure to get a table outside.

We visited the restaurant for the first time and were very surprised of the quality (in a good way). Fresh fish and meat, all served to perfection. Friendly service. An address we will certainly recommend

Nice atmosphere, interesting deco with cows made of chicken wire. Pleasant service and good fresh food. My wife had a steak for her main course which excellent, very tender and tasty. Will probably go back there so that must be a good sign.

Pleasant and sheltered setting. It is difficult to rate the food as I only visited once. I know I ordered a pricy medium ribeye which had the same texture and taste as a medium/well dry-ish sirloin steak. However: my wife enjoyed her fish so I...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!
