“Definitely worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner as well as lunch here. Food overall was good. The Portuguese calamari was average but the tuna steak was fantastic. During the day the view is great and sitting outside really adds to the experience.

“One of my favourites!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I just love the Lookout Deck! The setting is stunning - wide open ocean, the waves breaking on shore, rocks and beach. Brilliant cocktails and great food.

“Always busy - always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Favourite spot for lunch though I have no reason to believe that dinners are less popular.
Excellent location with- as the name implies - good views.
Food is wholesome and plentifull. Try the seared Tuna - it is superb - but you have to be hungry!
Next trip we will try it for Dinner as well

“Hubby's favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

He says it is absolutely the best tasting fish - consistently so. Of course the view is great. Just could be a bit cleaner for my liking.

“Great food good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We , tourists visited the Lookout with friends who are locals of Plett. Good to see that they were greeted by other locals eating there as well as the staff, a clear sign that this restaurant is popular with the locals. It was a busy night but service was friendly and quick. The menu is not extensive but offers a good choice of fish and meat dishes as well as salads and starters. Food was great and portions adequate if just... My only gripe is that seating is on benches fixed to the table and the cushions are thin, not the most comfortable. Prices for food and wine are average and great value for money. our visit was at night and next time Wee shall aim for a lunch out on the deck which offers stunning views of the coast.
