A beautiful restaurant in a very nice hotel. We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary, a pleasant and friendly greeting at the door. We were showed to our table to be seated in very comfortable chairs, presented with real cloth napkins and proper sliverware. Such a change. Our waiter was just so pleasant and knowledgeable with great service by him.... More

This became our favourite eatery in Plett, the service was very personable, the food was top quality and the atmosphere great. We have been advised that the Med is owned and run by the same family for many years, and the enthusiasm and experience shows through.
