The restaurant has great views but staff that are terribly unhelpful, with don’t care attitudes and the food wasn’t fab either. Small portions and unable to accommodate customer needs…not a recommendation unfortunately.

Hi Asma, we apologize for the negative experience you had with us, this is not our usual standard or quality of service. Would you kindly email admin@mobydicks.co.za with your contact details for the owner to make contact with you? Kindest regards, Moby's Management

We went for drinks on Friday afternoon and stayed for an early dinner - hake and chips for hubby and sole and rice for me. It was so good that we went back on Saturday and we then both had sole. Note that I really...don't like fish, so this is how much I enjoyed the sole. The service is also great and the pricing reasonable. Of course you can't beat the view.More

An excellent laid-back venue for a relaxing meal overlooking the Plett beach. Good service, tasty meals. We visit whenever in Plett. Highly recommended.

Even though the location is great, what a pity that the owners/management don't care! Totally disorganised, including the staff! They should be closed down, and a new energetic, fresh and vibrant restaurant, menu and staff introduced.More

The upstairs deck was the perfect view for a sundowner with the 4-6pm cocktail specials. Our waiter Zona was very friendly and had a few laughs for us in store. The new manager kyla is also giving the place a relaxed and really friendly vibe....definitely recommendMore

We are regular customers and liked the cosy atmosphere and the delicious seafood for a good price. Rather disappointed were we the last time, not in the food, which was even better and at a very good price, but because of the renovations. For me...the grey seemed cold and I felt uncomfortable, where the fireplace used to be, are now wine racks and I really missed some warmer colours. i am sad because of this. The food and service is still great though, but on a cold night, I will look for something more cosy or stay home.More

A Plett institution. Amazing sea views of Beacon Isle and main beach. The food and service was amazing. The pasta Neptune was delicious. We definitely be back.

I visited Moby's on several occasions because of the fantastic seaviews. The downstairs interior has a great vibe and cosy atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. The upstair terrace is a bit more rustic. The food is good for the price but the best...part about this dining experience is drinking fantastic South African wine whilst watching dolphins, which were present each time we visited. I have very fond memories of the place.More

Thank you We missed your review during lockdown It’s great to get back to hosting patrons such as yourselves

Reviewed 12 May 2020

We got a table on the barely furnished deck with a fantastic sea-view. The waiters were good tempered and friendly. The service-concept with its different colored flags on the table sounded a little bit strange to us but it worked. We ordered some oysters (outstanding...quality!) followed by prawns and fish bites. All in all we enjoyed a great and adequately priced lunch.More
