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

Once again we had an excellent dinner out here. The Sole special was delicious and the service really good. The staff are friendly and courteous. Luckily we booked as the restaurant was full. A small restaurant but a really nice atmosphere.

This restaurant was one of the best meals we had in South Africa. The manager of our hotel recommended it to us and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is unassuming from outside and we were surprised to find a real treasure inside. We were warmly greeted and the service was excellent. The ambience inside is intimate and welcoming, and... More

For what you pay, excellent value for money as the portions are very generous. Food is always hot and their prawn and calamari paella is excellent! Still the best fried hake in town by far.

Excellent dinner, recommend highly. Staff friendly and courteous. We actually had two meals here it was so good. We both had sea food that was excellently prepared. Reasonable prices, quick service.

Not sure what more one would want with a choice of seasonal fish, prawns, calamari, steak, chicken and even ostrich. The salads are always crunchy and the veg always fresh. I've tried almost everything and have never been disappointed. Puddings are also great and they have a team of friendly staff. Best value for money and delicious breakfast too!

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

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.
