“Some enchanted evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

It is always a treat to have a meal at Emily Moon.Be sure to arrive a half an hour before sunset to watch the sun go down over the beautiful grass savannah stretched out before you.The decor is eclectic,with a Balinese flavour and once you enter the restaurant courtyard,the atmosphere is enchanting.The prices are reasonable and the wine list is extensive,with many local vineyards to try.I had a seafood parcel,baked in the oven and it was delicious.The grenadilla cheesecake dessert was light and tasty.I have had many meals here and it never disappoints.

“A fabulous view.”

Emily Moon has a wonderful romantic setting overlooking beautiful wetlands. A place to relax, and enjoy good food at great prices. Whether eating inside or on the balcony it presents a wonderful ambience in a unique setting.

“Atmosphere amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

What a lovely and well appointed place, view and food. The service was excellent, the wine selection varied, the food of unusual choice and very special. What a romantic place to go with friends, family or your partner. We loved the experience Emily moon provides.

“Good food in a lovely setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Well worth a visit for the views alone Emily's is a popular character restaurant just outside Plettenberg Bay. The views over the open marshland enhance the culinary experience. There is a varied menu reasonably priced and the staff are pleasant and attentive. There is also a nice bar area to have a pre or post dinner drink. Highly recommended.

“Unforgetable Family Evening - !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

There are few memories that will last a life time, and our dinner at Emily's on Saturday night was one of those. Thank you so much folks - we so enjoyed your food, the services, the location and the atmosphere!

We had a few at our table that wanted to change things up a little and the waiter who served us - young gentleman was SUPER! The setting is beautiful and the food of high standards, the evening was a great success - and at times I looked around, our table was very rowdy, but there was no judgement - we where the last to leave, no was rushed us - as we left we blew out the candles on a unforgettable evening. THank you Simon & your team!
