Very Enjoyable

We last visited here when they were in their old premises across the road. Less cosy here, but much better for them as they also get the hotel trade, being based in the Bayview Hotel. I wanted to go for the duck as not many restaurants serve it nowadays. Luckily it was still on the menu and... read more

Had excellent dinner in The Med last night - superb Trio of Fish - local and fresh - really enjoyable. Service friendly and knowledgable. All augmented by beautiful view from the terrace of the rising moon. Highly recommended.

This was a last minute decision to visit on our stay in Plett and we were far from disappointed. The restaurant is quite small and as it was a cool evening all diners were seated inside. The feta mushroom starter was beautiful - fresh flavours of onions, herbs and topped with cheese before serving on a crouton with pesto. The... More

Great food. Had the trio of fish and also the large Argentinean prawns and was tasty as usual. Had a bottle of the local Plettenberg bay wine - Plettenvale dry white which was a very light white wine. Wine a bit pricy but overall a good experience. Friendly manager but a bit short staffed.

Every time when in Plet we are dining in the Med. The service was very good and personal and as far as seafood dishes are concerned they are really well prepared and can in every respect compete with the Fat Fish which was a dissapointment for us.

The lamb shank melted in my mouth. The chips was crisp and well cut. The dessert was wonderful except for the too small brownie. Will definitely come here again.
