From entering to leaving this restaurant put in a special effort to be the best. Slick professional service, wonderful setting with a fire burning to warm up the cold winters evening. Special attention to the food presentation and preparation made this a meal to remember. At the same time the prices are low for what you get. No wonder its gets such good ratings and comeback customers. We will be joining the queue.

Ray and I met our friends from the Whaling Station Peter and Gail Wall for lunch at the Fat Fish. First time that we have been there - the restaurant is located by central beach, has a cozy fire and a warm feel to it. The staff are very welcoming and helpful about the menu which we appreciated. Ray and Peter had the rib-eye steak and said it was divine but the sauce was a little too sweet for Ray, I couldn't fault mine at all both the starter of mushrooms and mussels and the main of Kingklip saltimboca was very very good plus the wine was a reasonable price.

Well done Simon - we will send our guests to you - it was a fabulous time had by all of us.

We had a wonderful night at the Fat Fish restaurant in Plettenberg Bay. The decor has been crafted by an expert it seems and the food is melt in the mouth. The ambiance and views from the terrace made it a very special evening for us.
