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!

“Customized vegan meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

When visiting the coast, I generally expect to struggle because most meals are unsurprisingly sea-food related which makes sense so to find a place willing to create a meal for me based on my likes and dislikes is pretty awesome! And your view is of the ocean...need I say more? Definitely a memorable meal!

“scrummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

the food was delicious and the service excellent. We loved the Cob and King Clip...great wines to go with it too! We stayed three nights at Milkwood Manor and couldn't resist two visits to the Lemon Grass

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

Had dinner here when we stayed in Plettenburg Bay. I was very disappointed about the fish. Had Line fish with red curry - terrible. The fish was not fresh at all. Did not finish the dish. Would not come back here again.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Beautiful restaurant, great views, one of the best servers ever.. wish I knew his name..Tall, lanky guy.. Incredible food.. Had the East Coast Sole.. not always available.. Delicious! My friend had lamb curry.. Most tender lamb I've ever eaten.. Cocktails and wine selection great also! We were a table of 8 fun, which means LOUD, (haha) Americans! And they took great care of us!

“Beautiful location and tasty food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Our small family of three enjoyed the evening in this beautiful Plettenberg Bay restaurant. The service was efficient, the view superb and the food met the expectations, specially the fish dishes. The atmosphere is a bit formal and the prices are higher then in some other restaurants in Plett, but it's a worthwhile spot if you are staying in town.
