I was just thinking where have my last dinner in Plettenberg Bay. Then I found a review about The Med Seafood Bistro. When I arrived there with Family, I got very surprise. It's welcoming place. The team was great and the food ... awesome!. Everything was perfect!. Great option.

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

Food was okay. Very noisy. Drinks service a bit slow. Expensive for what you get. Had the Trio of fish. All tasted the same. Lemon butter sauce needs some work.

It was my first time in Plett and there were a variety of places to choose from for supper. Fortunately we have the Entertainer book which made us choose to go to The Med Bistro. What a great decision. Although we waited a bit I did not mind especially because they delivered such tasty food. I loved the atmosphere, the... More

The Med has been in Plett for many, many years and the owners have become my friends, To be in business for so many years is an achievement by itself. They moved after many years from The Village Square to The Bay Hotel. To be honest I miss the intimate atmosphere of the old Med. The new premises are very... More

Every year for our wedding anniversary and my birthday Ray and I go to the Med for a special treat and have been doing so for the last 12 years as residents of Plettenberg Bay and before that as tourists. Never in my life have I been treated or spoken to in that manner by the owner of a restaurant... More

Fiona - I am surprised it took you a week to get to Tripadvisor! Yes, you had wonderful times at The Med because we treated you with respect & humoured you.

Another visit to The Med and we were not disappointed. Not the most attractive interior to this town centre bistro, but the food and service make up for that. Never had a bad course in several visits on our annual holiday.

Hi Ivan - thanks for your great review! I realise that taste on interiors differ, we've had a Cape Town designer pop in specially to take photo's of the interior as his client wanted to replicate some of the design elements in her house - and we've had many people enquire & take photo's of the finishes on the many...
