“Great beef gorgeous waiter with wonderful manners”

Description: This is casual food cranked up a level. Try the perfectly textured home-made hamburgers, beer battered hake with fries, and wild mushroom risotto. Traditional curries and mouth-watering steaks with classic bearnaise are a must for the carnivores. There is also a fantastic selection of tapas either as a starter or combine a few for your main course. The menu is small but changes every day to ensure the freshest ingredients. Fresh bread is prepared daily.Delvin Reck, the Head Chef, was the winner of the Stalwart of the Kitchen Award for the Sunday Times Food Awards in 2011.

My cousin and get husband have eaten there before on holiday and management made a big fuss of them. Menu lovely, staff fabulous and a great steak for a cheap price for those of us used to paying for meals in UK

“good but not great”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

everything was good and the food tasty, but I was hoping for a bit better food. Maybe I have been spoiled in the past. But no complaints and can be added to a your list

“Disappointing”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Incredibly disapointing. This place used to be value for money with simple, quality food and all the right small touches. Sadly something has changed, we heard via other locals that the original chef and owner had moved on. The food looked unappetising, portions were small and the quality not up to standard. Sauces that used to accompany certain dishes were missing, the bread brought to the table was stale, plain white and only one slice per person where there used to be a full basket of selected breads. The wine was warm and had been left out in the open on an evening when the temperature was 20 degrees celcius.

“Definite recommendation - the place is superb!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

You definitely have to dine at Scotty's while in Plett! Our food was exquisite and the ambiance was great. Every order completely blew us away and we couldn't find fault with anything. The prices compare favorably with Johannesburg restaurants. We will definitely return!
