We have eaten at this restaurant 3 times in the last 3 months on trips to Plettenberg Bay and we will keep coming back!!! It is amazing.. The food is fresh and different. They are very accommodating with food allergies. They have a stunning menu which comes in the form of a newspaper and is full of quirky things. We have had 3 very satisfying meals there. I suggest you book as they are very popular. The service is great, food is unbelievable and the atmosphere refreshing.you need to try this restaurant if you go to Plett!

This restaurant was new since we were in Plettenberg a year ago. Had lunch three times and all three occasions the food was excellent. Had tapas every time so I can't vouch for the other menu but very fresh and tasty. The bottle of wine we had was also 50 rand cheaper than the same wine at the Lookout!! Service excellent and very friendly staff. Will certainly be back next year.

Nice place, this.
It's facing the ocean, with a large sandbank and a few buildings in front of it. You need to go up a flight of outside steps to access it but this gives you a great view.
We had the tapas menu, which was a selection of fish and shellfish small portions along with maze, and drinks.
The food was ultra-fresh and beautifully presented. Yummy.
The atmosphere was really pleasant and the service excellent.
Recommended ++.

Lovely setting almost on the beach,modern slick decor and vibey atmosphere. Service is the best in Plett. Food is excellent , been very happy all 3 times we ate there. Only complaint is bad acoustics , can get a bit noisy when the place is full. Definitely worth a visit.
