Description: Lemon Grass Seaside Restaurant is beautifully situated at the water’s edge in Plettenberg Bay, with uninterrupted views of lagoon, mountain and ocean. The restaurant’s open, warm atmosphere is coupled with an exceptional location making it one of Plettenberg Bay’s top restaurants. Visual feasting aside, the award-winning dishes at Lemon Grass are equally delicious. From the freshest dish and seafood to mouth-watering meats and game, all drawing influence from international and traditional local cuisine. Each dish is carefully prepared from the freshest ingredients by our chefs to ensure that you are smiling from the first bite to the last!

Lovely curry but also a trio of kudu, ostrich and beef were made to perfection. We enjoyed it thoroughly and got in even without a booking

The service was incredible, salmon pasta, deep fried calamari is of the best we have ever had.
The view, crashing waves and lagoon is hard to beat.
A must if in Plettenberg.

We had a really lovely meal here whilst staying in plett, on the advice of the manager at our guest house. The food was simply stunning - I had the springbok shank which just melted off the bone... The desserts were equally scrummy! The wine list was fantastic too, and all very reasonably priced. We'd definitely recommend visiting the lemongrass whilst visiting plett!

Dear Anna,

Thank you for your lovely review, and taking your guesthouses advise on where to dine. The springbok shank is made with the owners secret recipe, and is slowly cooked in an abundance of red wine and fresh herbs, till it literally falls off the bones. We are equally pleased that you found our desserts enjoyable.

We appreciate your recommendation to future diners and can not wait to welcome you back at the seashore...

We ate here two nights in a row - we stayed at the hotel next door. The service is excellent. The ambiance very nice. On the first night the food was excellent. So we returned the second night. BUT on the second night the food was just average and we both has stomach upsets (gastro issues) in the hours following our dinner. We will not return.

Dear Yehudah

Thank you for reviewing us and the fact that you had such a enjoyable evening the first night, its unfortunate that you did not enjoy your lentill curries the second evening but to our restaurants defense, upon check in your wife was already not feeling well a statement made by you to the receptionist at the guesthouse. We served several portions that evening, two from the guesthouse and had no complaints as every serving is freshly prepared.

Consistently good fare - we visit often. Short on ambience but has a nice view of the lagoon at lunchtime.
