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.

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.

We enjoyed our dinner here very much. The service was courteous and friendly. Wine suggestion was perfect. Line-caught fish of the day was so yummy.

The service was not good and quality of the food matched this. A seafood platter for 2 cost us R450. It was tasteless and a total rip off
