Not much to look at from outside but surprisingly good food

From the outside you might easily pass this place by: next to a petrol station; a Spar supermarket on the other side; outside tables overlooking a car park... but inside the food is very good and the service is helpful & enthusiastic. This is not "fine dining" but good food at reasonable prices... read more

Below average hake, calamari and prawns. Really disappointing as we have heard good reviews about the food. Unlikely to try again.

We were looking forward towards our visit based on a recommendation. However we were very disappointed. The service was slow and food average. ...will not go back!

Small restaurant with a reasonable food/drink menu.Food was good but let down by the number of bones in the fish curry both my wife and I had. Staff were indifferent when this was pointed out.

When staying in Plettenberg we always go to Off The Hook a number of times and never been disappointed. The fish dishes have always been cooked to perfection and delicious. Service is always with a smile, especially from Delta who always has a warm welcome for you.

This is our favourite haunt for post cycle cappuccinos after our early morning bike rides. Always good to catch up with Wayne. Probably the best value seafood in Plett. Good casual uncomplicated food, and good value, good service.

I'd driven past here hundreds of times without giving it a second thought, but when looking for a relaxed place to go for dinner, this was recommended several times. What a great decision it was to come here! The service is absolutely outstanding, and the waiting time for food is about 5-10 minutes. The food is simple but great. It... More

You can't really go wrong with seafood when you're near the coast, but in this case we weren't particularly thrilled by the food on offer. We ordered grilled prawns, grilled hake, and grilled calamari. Each item was covered in a weird onion-based 'dressing' (unasked for, and not mentioned on the menu I don't think). It overpowered the dishes. The prawns... More
