We had a good meal at Nguni, though my springbok was slightly overcooked hence the 4 stars. Service was very friendly.

While staying at the Beacon Island resort this restaurant was recommended for serving good stakes. Both the wife & me had a rump steak. This steak was Excellent and just about the best if not the best steak I had in SA. I highly recommend...More

We'd never have found this gem without the recommendation of our hotel. Reservation needed as there are not a lot of tables indoors, though in summer their terrace fits a lot more. South African cuisine, not a huge choice because it's all fresh. Beautifully cooked...More

I had seen this restaurant reviewed and we were not disappointed. There is an emphasis on meat but the way it is cooked and the quality makes it 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!
