We felt very welcome upon booking and arrival of our dinner. The power was out this evening and they did really well to provide a good dining experience in the circumstances. We had mussels and calamari to start which were delicious, I'd advise ordering a side bread to go with the mussels. For mains we enjoyed a 300g sirloin steak... More

Have been dining at The Med almost since it opened (25+ years ago). It has recently moved across the road to part of a local hotel. Nothing has changed. The food, with the emphasis very much on seafood, has always been consistently good. The service is, and has always been, attentive. Great food, reasonable prices,friendly service, plus an owner who... More

Not a bad little restaurant to visit. We were welcomed warmly on a very rainy evening after I had called in a booking. Starters where tasty and a great seafood platter to share. I would come back.

A busy time of year 27-12-14) in poor weather showed that walk ins could be accommodated at expense of existing diners. We had been invited and had recalled last years experience but our hosts had insisted! We placed orders before 745 but only had mains served after 9 which was disappointing. Sadly this distracted us as we had been assured... More

After complaining about R145 for a sole probably not even weighing 100g, management approached us and was extremely rude, stating that no one complains about it, they don't have a person weighing every fish they take out of the box and then walking away in the middle of the response. The waiter doesn't speak up, takes 3/4 drink orders, before... More

When I was made aware by your waiter that the sole at your childrens’ table was smaller than our normal large, I calmly offered two options to resolve the problem at the table – 1 - a discount as the diner was a young girl at the childrens’ table, or 2- a second sole without any extra charge – but...

We have seldom have been so disappointed at a restaurant in Plett,this restaurant was truly awful, absolutely nothing to redeem the awful seafood, ambience and service. A total waste of a otherwise perfect evening in Plett.

The Med has a really varied and exiting menu. The food is of the very best quality and cooked with flair and imagination,some of the dishes are probably the best in the country. The duck and crepes suzette come to mind. Prices are reasonable and the service is personal, Marianne has an outstanding selection of local wines and knows them... More

On Wednesday evening my wife and I went to a fish restaurant on the beach front near the spur and was very disappointed as what they advertised during the day, which was a fish platter, R250, went up by R100 in the evening " it was all right " but we felt it was well over priced for what we...
