Description: SeaFood at The Plettenberg combines an array of elements to create an unsurpassed dining experience. The sand, beach and sea have been brought into the restaurant in the colours, mood and design. Unrivalled views of the breath-taking Formosa Bay are complimented by the decor, and together they create the perfect platform for the SeaFood cuisine. Here the chefs create modern South African fare that is seasonally influenced. The menu - designed by The Collection's award-winning Executive Chef Peter Tempelhoff and his team - places great emphasis on fresh produce from local green-friendly suppliers and this gives SeaFood at The Plettenberg the unique ability to showcase a true taste of the bay.

Had dinner here tonight, top marks to the chef. Had a really lovely meal, fish of the day was so fresh, cooked in a tandoori style, one of our favourite meals on our trip to sa such is the high standard of food here, needless to say wine was also great!!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Beautiful setting, attentive service and delicious seafood make this restaurant a perfect spot. Very comprehensive wine list and according to my husband the best fries in Africa (served with the fish as chips). We dined 3 times and had 3 lovely evenings

“Seafood by the Sea”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Excellent service, brilliant view from the cliff tops and food wonderful. Hard to fault in a setting which only gets better as the day draws to an end over Plettenberg Bay.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Food is absolutely delicious. My husband really enjoyed the seafood, espscially the seafood soup starter. I'm a vegetarian and the staff were happy to cater for me, and provided me with a really tasty pasta dish.

“The best restaurant in South Africa”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We spent 3 weeks in South Africa on safari and the Garden Route to Cape Town and this is without doubt, the best restaurant we went to. The food is absolutely delicious, the wine list fantastic, the location is superb and the staff are brilliant. They are immaculately turned out and nothing was too much trouble. Ask for a table at the front as the sea views are gorgeous.
I'm not easily pleased but I struggle to come up with a single criticism.
