“Not for us”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Were originally booked to stay here - glad we didn't. Very busy noisy restaurant - had table close to route to kitchen - unpleasant vibrations as waiters went back and forth. My wife had something she didn't like at all - think it was ribs - but in fairness chef came round to ask if everything OK and discussed disappointment openly - and gave us a free chocolate dessert to compensate, which is all he c0uld do.

“TABLE WITH A VIEW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

On the Crags Side of Plettenburg Bay 2 minuets off the N2 Emily Moon's continues to provide an eating experience. Great host, providing good food with wonderful staff, from tables that in the main offer a stunning view. The Sunday lunch menu is varied and well priced and you get all the above as well. A plus at least on our visits is that we don't have to suffer lift style muzac. If there is music playing, its as it should be - in the very background. Book though as it's popular.

“Delicious Sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We had the most delicious sushi here overlooking a stunning view just off the main road. The venue is nicely laid out and they kindly accommodated us even though we were later than their normal lunch time service.

Lovely restaurant in a lovely lodge. It was packed on the night we went but the food was still excellent!
