The food is delectable and the service, warm and friendly. Maintains the high standards of the Cape. It's in town so doesn't have views but well worth a visit.

Interesting menu featuring local dishes like ostrich and bobotie, etc. Intimate feel to restaurant as if you are in a living room in a private home. Well worth a visit.

Nguni Restaurant Nostalgic with an African flair, Nguni is located in one of Plett's oldest buildings - an original dairy dating back over a hundred years. Nguni's African menu is a reflection of traditional selections like Bobotie, game, biltong, springbok, Karoo lamb, ostrich and other local favourites. With its beautiful sunny veranda or eclectic African interior with its original wood-burning stove, the Nguni Girls provide customers with a unique setting and superb menu. A true taste of the Cape!
