This fine dining restaurant is beautiful, the decor is a classic case of 'less is more'. When our B & B host recommended it, and suggested fish and chips, I thought she was joking (to anyone who has not been to the UK, fish and chips is considered fast food). So I had a seafood platter. But part of it... More

The fish and chips are bangin'! (That's a good thing). The cheese souffle is rich, decadent and creamy. Yum! In fact, everything we tried on the menu was perfect. Staff is outstanding and friendly. Sit outside and enjoy the views of the Indian Ocean! The restaurant decor is beachy chic -- and there is not a bad view anywhere.

Best food in Plett this week. Cheese soufflé was out of this world. Steaks were excellent. Thulani was our waiter and he knows how to look after diners. Nice big wine list with plenty of choice from local and cape wines. They also have a nice cocktail bar to start and finish the meal. No more expensive than the other... More

We ate here on our first night at the hotel. They got our drinks order wrong and bought the wrong cocktails. We pointed this out and they were replaced. We ordered our meal and when our starters arrived we were then told that the fish we had ordered For our main course was not available and they had substituted it.... More

A reasonable meal, high prices (for South Africa, cheap compared to the UK), not in my opinion quite as good as the prices deserve, but quite acceptable

Everything about our dinner was perfect. I highly recommend coming early before sunset with a light sweater and ask for a table outside on the stunning terrace, to view the ocean and breathtaking nature that surrounds you. One of the best restaurants we have ate at and we dine around the world a lot. The service was impeccable yet not... More

We stayed at the hotel so gave dinner a try. Food was good but place lacked atmosphere as it was low season and fairly empty. However lovely location and service is good.

We were staying at the hotel so the first night took it easy. We all had fish of various sorts and all enjoyed our meals. Good quality ingredients and portions. Not what I would categorize as a memorable experience but good.

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.
