Description: Nguni Restaurant Nostalgic with an African flair, Nguni is located in one of Plett's oldest buildings - an original dairy dating back over a hundred years. Nguni's African menu is a reflection of traditional selections like Bobotie, game, biltong, springbok, Karoo lamb, ostrich and other local favourites. With its beautiful sunny veranda or eclectic African interior with its original wood-burning stove, the Nguni Girls provide customers with a unique setting and superb menu. A true taste of the Cape!

“By far the best restaurant in Plettenberg”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

The food and service at Nguni stands head and shoulders above any other restaurant in Plettenberg Bay, mainly due to the active involvement of the owners and well trained staff. Excellent food and good selection of wine. Consistent quality and value for money. Not to be missed.

“friendly and a cut above most”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Always reliable, visited 4 times during a recent holiday. The owner is very attentive to the service and quality of the restaurant. We had a birthday lunch, New Year buffet and best of all two evening meals. the springbok and ostrich steaks are first class and the tuna carpaccio amazing. There was a muddle over one of our bookings, probably not their fault and unlike many busy places in Plett they quickly made a plan and sorted us out in a completely friendly, professional way.

“Sensational evening out!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Had a sensational meal at Nguni Restaurant. The menu comprised of fresh daily specials from Tuna Carpaccio to amazing Rib-eye steaks. Great wine list, excellent friendly service. Our meal was outstanding and had a very relaxed evening with good food, wine and friends. Nguni is by far the best Restaurant in Plettenberg Bay.
