It's very rare that I write an appalling entry on a restaurant. I can endure dreadful surrounds as long as the food is excellent and I can endure average food and average surrounds if the staff are excellent but this place committed the cardinal sin of having appalling service, seriously untrained staff all 'lead' by a senior citizen whose body...

Dear Frontiermann- I apologise for the lack of service at your table -it is difficult to say why a waiter's wheels fell off after 4 months of training- training of wines, menu & service -especially seeing that you were sitting 3 metres away from the water & wine fridge & he had only 2 tables - maybe because he did...

We ordered starters (calamari, snails and frozen avocado). Two dishes arrived. The second snail dish and the prawns with frozen avocado decided not to join us. Apparently the kitchen was very far away and the Chef was 'confused'. The mains were good - the white fish (klipsole) was actually very tasty and the spinach side was surprisingly 'excellent'. My wife... More

My husband and I went to the Med Seafood Bistro with the expectation of having delicious seafood platters. There were actually very few seafood options available. We ended up ordering the trio of fish. To my surprise the portions were really not large... the presentation of the food was more of a "upper class" restaurant than a bistro as were... More

The service and atmosphere was good in general and we ordered the seafood platter which was very tasty and would recommend to others and will return there again.

We visited The Med two years ago and enjoyed it so much that we had to return this year again. Although the place seemed not to be the same as last (in terms of cleanliness) the seafood platter (we had 3) were very nice. The food was not soaking in sauce and you are able to taste the food as... More

We had been recommended to Med Bistro by a B&B owner on a previous visit and thought we'd give it a try. One of the odd things about Plett restaurants is that the "average" places (like this one or Off the Hook) are not significantly cheaper than the really good ones (Seafood at the Plett, Nguni, Equinox etc). I would... More

We came here on our first night out as husband and wife. I absolutely loved it. I had the lamb shank and my husband had the seafood platter. It was beautiful, he complained about the mussels (to me, not an official complaint) that's why only four stars. My lamb deserved ten stars in my opinion. Marianne was extremely friendly, even...

we had the seafood platter, mussels with sand and the prawns overcooked. Maybe the other items on the menu are great
