“Romantic and consistent with excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

The setting is pure romance, the views just stunning (of the Bitou Valley). Candles, lamps, fairy lights. Dinner only. Great service, winning ambience. Moroccon, Indonesian, African – chic and matched perfectly. A fireplace inside for winter and a fireplace outside, with a few “lounge” seating areas in the garden. Very good wine options, and a special list with a few special wines for impressing the lady or the boss. The food is decent portions and always very well prepared. The menu changes evry now and then with some "in season" options added. Had the most stunning seared tuna, salmon, kudu and fillet steaks, seafood, prawns, Patagonion calamari, to name a few. The pavlova and berries, crème brulee and choc brownies are plate licking good. Just a stunning place, that’s all! Jo and Werner are great people...

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

This is a must visit if you are anywhere near! The alfresco dining area is very beautiful. Go in time to see sunset. They have outside fires and the food is excellent.

“Magnificent mussels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

This place is a real find. Boho meets africa. The food is superb, from starters to mains to desert. I have to rave about the mussels - without a shadow of doubt the emily moon starter mussels are just incredible, maybe the best sea food dish I've every tasted (that or crayfish on the braai).. the setting is so special, the atmosphere is chilled. I just adore this place.. go go go !!!!! And do try the kingclip samosa. Absolutely divine too!!!!

“Fantastic view with food to match”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

Emily Moon is always a firm favourite of ours when we visit Plettenberg Bay - lunch out on the deck or an early dinner in summer provide a true out of Africa view and a great atmosphere to enjoy a good time. The food has been consistently good together with attentive service.
We will be back

“Thank Goodness for the Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

The young girl that takes the bookings and organises the seating needs an attitude adjustment. We did not enjoy her tone and needs some peole skills - however the food was fantastic. Its a pity it was cold so we couldnt enjoy the outside layout but i sure can imagine it to be spectacular at night.
