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!

“We will be back”
Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

Definitely worth a visit. Only downside is that sold out on creme brûlée - simple solution we will need to pay another visit.

“Worth it for the Location!”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

The food was fine but not spectacular. Staff could've been more attentive considering there were few customers. But that truly doesn't matter considering how good it felt to sit right beside the river as it entered the sea. Gorgeous so i'm keen to give the venue another try.

“Food with a view”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Excellent food and service. Setting is superb - although last time we were there it was Autumn so dark nights = no view.
A couple of little niggles though
- the menu prices included service but the bill was presented with the service line still open. I always tip - but twice is stretching it!
- the waiters always seem to try and "sell up" the wine to a more expensive bottle.
If not for the above - an undoubted 5 rating

“Fantastic cheesecake, beautiful views”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

When we arrived in the late afternoon it looked closed (they were getting ready for dinner), but they graciously opened up for us and we spent a wonderful few hours enjoying coffee, their fantastic cheesecake and the spectacular view. Next time I'll come back for a proper meal!
