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.

We were there for lunch & enjoyed sitting outside on the patio watching the visitors go by. It was not busy as it was out of season service was good and the price was value for money.

We are locals but hardly ever get the chance to go out for dinner. We had friends over from Scotland and thought that we would go to The Med with them for dinner. This was during season and it was very busy. The service was great and our dining experience was fantastic. So good that we went back for my... More

We frequently asked hotel and info staff where to eat. The med was always recommended. After eating there several times never disappointed with food or service. Well worth a visit.

Visiting Plett the second time after some years we were glad "The Med" is still there and waiting with delicious food - expecially fish is fantastic and the service is quick. The location is a little bit downstairs, but very silent and relaxed. A good place for a nice and not complicated dinner.
