“DINING IN PLETT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We had Cape Salmon grilled which was very fresh and tasted great. The restaurant was extremely busy and the service was a little slow.

“acoustics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

this is a nice change of scenery in plett ,great views in the day ,food well prepared ,and above average for plett.the pity is the noise level is unbearable inside the restaurant ,to many tables to many customers,in summer when one can sit outside its fine.so many establishments today dont take into account noise levels what a pity!!recommend lunch ouside as a better option.

“Lovely food , fresh fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely meal here recommended by our hotel.The food was lovely and the staff very attentive, service a little slow but not slow enough that I would grumble, that could perhaps have been remedies by having a starter was lovely to sit with a glass of wine and watch the world go by.We were accepted without a booking which is always helpful. The food we had was cooked perfectly and so worth the wait.

“Excellent food, great location and view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We were recommended to eat at Fat Fish and are we glad that we went! We sat outside with a lovely view over Main Beach and the Beacon Island Hotel. Even our Scottish Terrier was welcome! Both my husband and I had grilled fish with veggies and a Greek salad to share. There was a choice of chips or baby potatoes which we did not have. The fish was beautifully presented and tasty,grilled to perfection. This is now one of our new favourite restaurants in Plettenberg Bay.
