We visited the restaurant for the first time and were very surprised of the quality (in a good way). Fresh fish and meat, all served to perfection. Friendly service. An address we will certainly recommend

This is a place to have South African food in very high quality. Our waiter was very nice and we enjoyed a great evening.

Nice atmosphere, interesting deco with cows made of chicken wire. Pleasant service and good fresh food. My wife had a steak for her main course which excellent, very tender and tasty. Will probably go back there so that must be a good sign.

Pleasant and sheltered setting. It is difficult to rate the food as I only visited once. I know I ordered a pricy medium ribeye which had the same texture and taste as a medium/well dry-ish sirloin steak. However: my wife enjoyed her fish so I wrote my lunch off as an abberation and an excellent opportunity to improve my cholesterol... More

Last meal from our trip to Plett and we expecting something special. Whilst the old building was interesting and the food/service very nice this didn't come over as significantly better than other restaurants in the town - and the fake grass on the walls was a little odd. Certainly worth visiting if you're nearby.

We had a wonderful meal here, and were so impressed with both the food and service from start to finish. Food - incredible. We ordered the meze platter and the bogotie spring rolls and loved the chutney that came with the spring rolls so much we asked to buy a bottle of it! For mains we got the seared tuna... More

Do give this great restaurant a try - but book! We each sampled something different - tuna carpaccio, bobottie spring rolls and goats cheese/beetroot salad - we were off to a good start. My husband tried Ostrich fillet for the first time and is now a fan and the soy and honey salmon looked great. I had the lime and... More

A busy restaurant with an excellent menu ... we didn't book but we would expect to as it was full of happy diners similarly confident in their find.

Apparently this place used to be a fisherman's hut: quite a quaint little place - no view at all, but nice atmosphere. Billed as having an African menu and I chose some of the more unusual options, such as Bobotie spring rolls and Ostrich fillet; my wife went for the Tuna Carpaccio and Kingklip. Both were great, the wines were... More

Description
Nguni Restaurant
Nostalgic with an African flair, Nguni is located in one of Plett's oldest buildings - an original dairy dating back over a hundred years. Nguni's African menu is a reflection of traditional selections like Bobotie, game, biltong, springbok, Karoo lamb, ostrich and other local favourites. With its beautiful sunny veranda or eclectic African interior with its original wood-burning stove, the Nguni Girls provide customers with a unique setting and superb menu. A true taste of the Cape!
