We had a takeaway from here when we were in Plett and the food was really good - you can tell it's proper restaurant quality food. We had a selection of Lebanese dishes and a chicken kebab and everything bar the soggy chips was tasty and genuine - in fact it was one of our best meals in South Africa!... More

Great lebanese food. Waiter was excellent but stretched- only person working in a very busy restaurant.

Off the Hook is a pretty ordinary location, situated at the bottom of Odlands Road, next to the Total petrol station on the way to the Beacon Isle Hotel in Plettenberg Bay. Having been taken over recently from its previous owners by a couple of Lebanese ancestry, my 87-year-old mother, her 90+ sister-in-law, and my beloved wife decided to sample... More

Such a refreshing menu with a wide variety of tastes, delicious fish and also the Lebanese platter is out of this world. Definitely the spot to try in Plettenberg Bay. Its totally off the hook!

Stopped at this restaurant by chance on our way back to the hotel. Chose it by chance after reading the review of another dinner. Often what people write and what is experienced is two different things but not in this case. We had the hake and calamari - Well I can honestly say anything fresher is still swimming in the...

Don't be fooled by the location next to the spar, this was one of the best meals we have had...in terms of the freshness of the fish and other ingredients, the service etc. Believe it or not with only about 10 tables it is best to reserve a table for dinner and be careful, portion control is to SA Levels....

Three out of our party of five had burgers which, when they arrived, looked massive. They were thoroughly enjoyed. Two of us had fish. The fish and chips was declared fantastic, with a light batter void of the usual oil. The grilled hake was ok. Lacked a bit of flavour though. The service was efficient and friendly.
