Visited 4 times during a 2 week stay in plett this month. Whether it was breakfast, morning coffee, lunch or dinner, it was fabulous at all times. Food honest, well prepared, reasonably priced. Best view in plett by far. Divine, attentive staff. Two in particular that were amazing, and now I can't remember their names. Dark haired guy who lent... More

We called in here for a bite to eat at lunchtime, ordered salads. We wished we had sent them back, the lettuce was the bit i would have thrown away, the salad was boring and unappetising. Service was slow for a simple order.

this was definitely a popular venue with it being quite hard to get a table. Service was not too fast but the food and drink made it worthwhile to come a second time. Great views of the beach and the riptides

The vibe at Lookout is fantastic, and this is largely thanks to the most beautiful ocean views right ahead of the restaurant. We were a little let down by the food this time around, but the willing waitress, happy vibe, flowing drinks and crashing waves made up for that, and some!

What a bad experience!. Yes, the location is great, but that's the only positive thing we can say about this place. Parking the car was a problem, you wait in line to get in, and they tell you they only have space inside (the whole deal is the beach view). Very very crowded and noisy. Too many tables for them...

Take a nice little morning walk and finish it here, looking out to sea eating waffles with a topping of your choice. Can't think of a better place to have breakfast, or lunch or dinner for that matter. I recommend the icecream and strawberries. Hubby had bacon and maple syrup and was equally satisfied.

Downstairs restaurant beautifully renovated! Lovely location. Restaurant fully booked but managers went out of their way to accomodate us. Definitely worth going there for the proper Plet beach experience dinner/lunch in style!!
