Description: Surf Cafe perfectly blends together bar and restaurant to create a fantastically relaxed night out experience. With our selection of nostalgic surf trips meals and friendly vibe we'll have you in that holiday mode in no time, perhaps that is why its such a popular spot for locals. Regular Live music performances add to the occasion and we now offer free wifi for spending customers. Surf Cafe is also a great spot to catch live sporting events on the big screen including live streaming broadcasts of the ASP word surfing tour. Meals are simple, but good and priced to keep you coming back. "Good food, Great vibe, the place to be!"

reasonably priced food, good place to relax and catch up between activities - pity no view really and service a bit slow but think that is par for the course in this area !

“Best spot in Plett!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

My family LOVES this restaurant. Vibe is surfer casual...you can come off the beach in your baggies and flops, there is even a parking spot for your board if you need it. Blu welcomes you with open arms and a huge smile...Enchilader is BEST in SA!!!! and Nachos not far behind!!!! Inexpensive and fantastic!!!! A must in Plett!
