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!

“Nguni Rib Eye”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

It is the second visit we made to Nguni - to celebrate a birthday. Only complaint is that I was left holding the phone line when trying to make a booking and merrily forgotten about whilst I heard the chattering in the background. Five minutes later I was able to phone again. Other than that, we had a great experience. Nice intimate setting, the Nguni rib eye was delicious - this time we ordered veg (nice and crispy greens) with it. Oh, yes didn't like the smoke filtering through the front door (where the smokers stood) whilst we were eating. Food and service was very good though.

“Good setting with average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant had a great setting and wonderful art exhibition next door. The inferior is great and the ambience also good. The manager is very professional and manages the place with style. The service was average, I think the waiter could have been new. Food very average and no vow factor.

“Great atmosphere, hosting and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We were in Plettenberg Bay for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon and decided to try Nguni. We loved it so much that we went back again. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, hosting marvellous and so is the food. And to top it all, you pay the right amount for the quality you receive. If you are in Plettenberg you can miss it.

Didn't think this was anything special - in fact I can't remember much about it at all - which says it all! Nice interior courtyard though
