Description: Lemon Grass Seaside Restaurant is beautifully situated at the water’s edge in Plettenberg Bay, with uninterrupted views of lagoon, mountain and ocean. The restaurant’s open, warm atmosphere is coupled with an exceptional location making it one of Plettenberg Bay’s top restaurants. Visual feasting aside, the award-winning dishes at Lemon Grass are equally delicious. From the freshest dish and seafood to mouth-watering meats and game, all drawing influence from international and traditional local cuisine. Each dish is carefully prepared from the freshest ingredients by our chefs to ensure that you are smiling from the first bite to the last!

On a drive to another place to eat I stopped to look at the lemon grass, upon entering I loved it, we had not booked, but a gentlemen who I later found out was the owner kindly said that if we really wanted to stay and were prepared to eat then he would lay stable for us.

We agreed and he did.

It was a delicious meal, the service by a young man was so professional so polite and very good.

The views are spectacular.

We have since spokent to a couple who are in SA for three moths of the year and pre booked every Saturday. Who can blame them I would too.

Would I go again Yes

Would I recommend Yes yes yes
