we stopped here for a quick calamari basket, and the staff were helpful. As soon as a better table became available at the seafront view, the waiters offered to move us without us even having to ask. Good food as well

What a nice down to earth restaurant. This is not necessarily a healthy low calorie choice but damn the food is good. A great choice if you would like a lekker meal and a beer.

Nice 'watering hole' overlooking a beautiful sandy beach and the Indian Ocean. We visited the bar twice whilst we were in Plettenberg but did not get the opportunity to eat, although the menu looked great.

We had brunch and would like to commend this restaurant for the good food and great service. The breaded calamari melted in my mouth. The boerie breakfast was very enjoyable.

Had Calamari and a Durban mutton bunny. Both were good and the beers cold. Highly recommend the Mitchels draught. Would score a good and recommend for a down key lunch or dinner.
