We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. We started with delicious cocktails. The waiters were really helpful in recommending dishes and there was so much to choose from. We met a couple who said they had eaten there every night during their stay and you could see why it really was lovely. Fresh dishes. Beautifully presented. Great atmosphere.

Food was excellent each time we visited. You will need to book, very popular. Service is very good but restaurant very busy and at times this can make it a little on the noisy side. This is a must to visit. I only scored it a 4 due to the noise. Due to the rand rate you carnt better value for money

We have dined here a few times and the food and service is good.
The latest visit being last Saturday.
As usual the place was packed in the evening and you really do need to book.
I had prawn parcels to start.
Grilled hake for my main.
On a slight downside the prawns were not to the normal quality as the wraps were quite stodgy/thick and not as crisp as normal.
I did mention it to the manager but my complaint was not replied to after him saying he would see the chef.
They were very busy so I guess I was just forgotten.
However We will still use the restaurant as the food is generally top quality.

Great fresh fish, we had lunch and dinner here, be warned you have to book dinner. The grilled prawns are delicious, the sushi is really good aswell as the tapas dishes. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful.

We went to the fat fish both evenings when we stayed in plett in January. The first meal we had - catch of the day - was excellent and so was the second. The service was excellent even though the restaurant was very busy. The views were fantastic. We never thought of going elsewhere as central Plett itself is such a good place to wander around.
The meals were very inexpensive
