Description: Lemon Grass Seaside Restaurant is beautifully situated at the water’s edge in Plettenberg Bay, with uninterrupted views of lagoon, mountain and ocean. The restaurant’s open, warm atmosphere is coupled with an exceptional location making it one of Plettenberg Bay’s top restaurants. Visual feasting aside, the award-winning dishes at Lemon Grass are equally delicious. From the freshest dish and seafood to mouth-watering meats and game, all drawing influence from international and traditional local cuisine. Each dish is carefully prepared from the freshest ingredients by our chefs to ensure that you are smiling from the first bite to the last!

“Great Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

On a slightly off day, we found the Lemon Glass via Trip Advisor. If this is number 3 the others must be terrific. The service, food and wine was all of prop shelf, particularly the Sole. The find was unexpected and we Ido recommend the ambience and location.

“A birthday-eve dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

My husband had told the hotel it was to be his birthday the day we were leaving but they gave us an amazing table with lovely views out to the ocean. The food was really good with nice choices and an excellent wine list. A most enjoyable experience served by a realy friendly waiter.

“Beautiful Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

The restaurant is on the premises of Milkwood Manor, a guesthouse with a beautiful view of the sea. Food was excellent and service spot-on. The wine-list was somewhat limited and unoriginal, and they do not permit you to bring-your-own. Overall can be highly recommended.

Simple classic dishes, good value & great service. Nicely decorated & laid out. went for dinner so could not see the view but from location would imagine a good spot for lunch as well.
