“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

An excellent restaurant with really good food. Nice view across the river. Good wine cellar. Only criticism was no vegetarian option on the menu, but check that they may be able to do one anyway.

“Cosy atmoshperic meals”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

One of our most favourite restaurants will always be Emily Moon in Plettenberg Bay.
Whether it is pouring with rain or a beautiful summer evening, we always try to get a seating at Emily's!
Good food, service good atmosphere and one of the most beautiful settings!
Good for romantic dining but good for sharing with friends too!

“Best kept secret!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We celebrated my hubbies birthday at Emily Moon last year. A friend told me about the restaurant as we were going to Plett for a time-share weekend. We booked for lunch the Sunday afternoon, as a last treat on our way back to Port Elizabeth.What a lovely surprise! Everything just blew us away! The food was excellent, the decor was stunning!

“Cosy colonial restaurant but disappointing food”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We had dinner in June 2013. We have stayed at Emily Moon several times and had dinner many times before and always go back for the experience and good food. We did not enjoy our dinner this time as much as the previous times. We were seated right at the back of the restaurant and it seemed that they forgot about us. The starters was not nice at all, I had the butternut soup, it was flavoured with curry and to thick and I could not taste the butternut. My wife had the fishcakes that was over flavoured. The lamb chops was nice, but a bit over grilled/charcoaled to our taste. We did not complain and we decided not to have desert and coffee. Disappointing dinner.

“Great Dining Experience”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Good food, wonderful view.....the whole package that makes travel fun and rewarding. Food selection was adequate, but the real highlight was the perfect preparation and presentation.
We eat out for fun...everything about Emily's was perfect !
