We ate in the med which is based in the same block as our hotel the bayside view. It was a very good meal with a varied menu and reasonably priced. The restaurant was comfortable and well furnished and the staff were very attentive. The owner sat a while with us after our meal and assisted us with our travel... More

We always have a very consistent, tasty, and very reasonably priced meal at the Med. Dyson is such a wonderful waiter, charming, professional and a really superb, quality guy. Fantastic steaks tonight, cooked to perfection. Everyone in Plett should support this great little restaurant - we need places like this to survive the low, quiet season. They support the local...

We enjoyed a cosy evening on a cold night. The steak special was tasty and served with a rich gravy sauce with marrow. I would have preferred to be asked if I liked marrow as I would have said no. We did not return for breakfast as there were so many other little places to eat. It was satisfactory and... More

We went to the med on our first night in Plett on the recommendation of our backpackers and we loved it. We had the mussels and tempura prawns to start and both were excellent, mussels sauce was really flavoursome and the prawns lightly battered and with a great accompanying sauce. For mains we both had the cape gurnard as the... More

I went here a few years back and know people that go. My parents live in Plett. The Med has always been known for great food a high prices, but people always walk out satisfied. The intimate seating makes conversation easy and you can spend less if you have some starters as a platter with a bottle of wine. Worth... More

We went to the Med on recommendations and reviews on TA. and weren't disappointed. Food was very good - the Malay seafood curry was the best I have had! However, the best was the reaction of the staff when the electricity went off for hours! The chef managed to serve us a wonderful meal, thanks to his gas stove and... More

We are now living in Plett and visited The Med for the first time in it's new location. From the time we arrived the service was excellent, the staff extremely welcoming and friendly and the food was delicious. We had Sole and Kingklip, both beautifully cooked and served. A good dining experience and we enjoyed the new location.
