“great location”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We ate here twice during a recent trip to Plett. Lunch is very relaxed and the views are great. Evenings are far more busy and bustling. Service is excellent and attentive. The tapas dishes are great as are the fish dishes. The calamari is lovely and crispy. Wine choices are good. We were are group of eight and ervyone enjoyed the food and the ambience.

Reviewed March 4, 2014

Simon has created another wonderfully innovative restaurant with brilliant décor, service and of course food. Fish brilliant and the newspaper menu is worth taking home with all the local news.A must when in Plett.

What a super place to eat. Food is fantastic, very good value and staff excellent. Best to book if you want to be seated indoors in the evening.
