Beware of the bones!

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

We were in Plett and tried Off the Hook as it was too cold to dine out in the main street. The meal we had was the best of the holiday and as a result, we went a week later to enjoy the same standard of hospitality. My wife and I had the fish bites and my father in law... More

Had lunch at Off the Hook on Monday - Hake and Chips for both of us. delicious fresh fish with thin tasty batter and nice crispy chips. Drinks well chilled served with glasses that had been iced. Well priced, friendly service from waiter and owner. Will go back.

We never had a sit down meal but got a take away from them so I can't tell you about the Restuarant atmosphere. I can however tell you that the grilled fish we got was so over cooked it was difficult to get it on the fork without scooping it up. The texture of the fish was not nice as... More
