Not the cheapest but certainly amongst the best eating in Plett. If they have the springbok it is so tender and cooked to perfection. Chef knows what he is doing. Also recommend the tuna carpaccio and the meringues. Service excellent and professional.

Small tucked away restaurant. A place to go smart casual rather than casual. Service bordered on formal but a good knowledge on the menu and contents. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Food was minamilstic but flavoursome. Recommend the fillet steak and the ostrich fillet. Reasonable cost although don't expect to come away bloated. Recommended.

8/2/17 South African style restaurant. It is situated in the commercial center of The Plett on a side street with parking in the front. It is a cosy, not to big place, without a view. Staff very efficient and smiling. Dishes of good quality. Can be recommended.

The atmosphere was very decadent. We did't have the right clotches on, so ... Ok, we could have our diner there. We had no starter, onlay the mean menu. It was nice. That's all. We found the waiter and his staff rather stiff. My advice: put on your nicest clothes and a big smile. We only are traveling through Z.Afrika... More

The food at Nguni was really nice, with very good service. We had the tuna carpaccio and the Nguni beef, perfectly cooked. Make sure to get a table outside.

Recommended by hotel. Had babooite spring rolls, and ostrich and two desserts, plus wine and coffee. Fabulous meal for about £40. Although branded as authentic , noticeable all clientele were white served by local people. Good night very good food food and very enjoyable.

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!
