We were staying in the hotel and ate here twice. The first evening we'd just arrived and didn't want anything too heavy and most of us had fish which was delicious. However we decided to eat there again and much to our disappointment the choices we had been looking forward to eg steak was not available. This seemed really poor... More

Just a little disappointed with my Fish and Chips, one piece was fine the other very small and thicker batter than the larger piece. Have had better elsewhere. The salad starter was very nice and excellently dressed. Service was fine but a little slow with our main meal, we don't mind but other people may have said something.

We last visited this restaurant thirteen years ago and it was great to see that none of the high standards had slipped! The view from here is quite something!

Was looking forward so much to our evening at The Plettenberg . Such a beautiful hotel in a stunning location. We both ordered the sole as a main dish but it arrived topped with a "creme fraiche" sauce which also covered the surrounding potatoes. Now I do like creme fraiche but do not want it flavouring my whole meal .... More

SeaFood at The Plettenberg combines an array of elements to create an unsurpassed dining experience. The sand, beach and sea have been brought into the restaurant in the colours, mood and design. Unrivalled views of the breath-taking Formosa Bay are complimented by the decor, and together they create the perfect platform for the SeaFood cuisine. Here the chefs create modern South African fare that is seasonally influenced. The menu - designed by The Collection's award-winning Executive Chef Peter Tempelhoff and his team - places great emphasis on fresh produce from local green-friendly suppliers and this gives SeaFood at The Plettenberg the unique ability to showcase a true taste of the bay.
