“Went backwards”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We visited this restaurant for lunch after having an excellent time previously. The food was fantastic, healthy and something totally different from what the other restaurants offer. The open sandwiches were scrumptious. I was planning on having the salmon as one of our party had this to eat on our previous time. We were totally shocked to see how the restaurant has changed. It’s just became another restaurant which does not have its own personality. The menu has also changed and in the place of the healthy, fresh and different items are boring items which does nothing to tantalise your taste buds. The worst thing is that the price per meal has gone up almost double. On our previous visit lunch worked out to +- R120 per person drinks included. With the change lunch could cost you almost R200 per person. The restaurant has really lost its uniqueness and definitely do not live up to its name of “Health Hub”. There are no health items on the menu to select from. Will not be going back there at all!!

“If I could give a negative rating I would.”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

I've lived in Plett for 12 years so please take my advice and do not go here. We came here for lunch on 21 December 2013. To begin, the waitress did not know how to explain several items on the menu. Despite the fact that there was only one other table occupied in the whole restaurant, our drinks took ages to arrive. A 50 minute wait for our food then ensued (which consisted of items we'd ordered from the takeaway menu). Following this, half the table got their meals and the other half had to wait another 15 minutes for theirs (everyone else had finished eating by this stage). Finally, what they call a "quiche" is actually some sort of cold, flat scrambled egg concoction. When I complained to the manager he promised to be in touch regarding a free meal and I have not heard from them since. An absolute waste of time and money.

“Poor service”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Took a table on the 20th of December, the place looked good with live music to boot. The waiter came over immediately and took our order for drinks and that's where the service stopped. It then took him a good 25 minutes before taking our food order, at this point we ordered more drinks which he promptly forgot. The food was excellent when it did arrive but even that took too long. We then waited for another 40 minutes before our table was cleared. The owner was sitting on a table close by and came over to apologise for the service but did nothing about it, WISH WE HAD FOUND SOMEWHERE ELSE TO EAT
AVOID THIS PLACE.......
