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!

“Great menu in an intimate restaurant”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation from the Bosavern Guest House and were not disappointed. The restaurant was full, but fortunately we had reserved our table earlier in the day. Really enjoyed their Meze platter as a shared starter, followed by main meals of Ostrich Fillet and Springbok Fillet which were well presented and cooked perfectly.

“A Little Gem.”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

A great little restaurant with warm and welcoming staff and great food too. Although we visited on a rainy evening the restaurant was full. The menu was short but well balenced and the wine list was also good. As we left an umbrella was waiting for us and we were walked to our cab so as to avoid getting wet.

“Stunning decor”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We visited Nguni in February 2013. The decor is stunning and we really liked it. The starters were fantastic - really tasty and beautifully presented. I ordered steak medium rare and this caused a bit of a problem. First it was well-done and then it was too rare so in the end I gave up on it, but the rest of our party enjoyed their meals. I would say it has the makings of a good restaurant, but a bit more work needed.

“Cozy restaurant”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Cozy African restaurant that makes good food. A little pricey but a good treat when you go. They serve great freshly baked bread on arrival.
