Very nice surroundings just off the N2. You can smoke on the died nearest the road but not outside on the west side. Service is good and pleasant without being intrusive.. The top came off my pepper grinder and dumped its entire charge over my ribeye. The plate was replaced but not the tomatoe and pesto side dish. My friends... More

When in Plett please make sure that you fit a breakfast in at Le Fournil. Atmosphere great and food very interesting. Try the croissant dishes. They are excellent!

We had this on our list as a breakfast venue based on the reviews here. On our first day in Plettenberg, we decided to check it out late afternoon as a coffee stop. On entering our first sight was a number of wasps crawling around within a display cabinet containing what remained of the viennoiserie . There was a good... More

My wife and I cannot resist popping in at the charming Le Fournil whenever we are in Plett. This pukka patisserie's freshly baked croissants, breads and their pancakes as well as their omelettes complement their delicious coffees, infused teas & hot chocolates make this a have to do when passing or staying in Plett. The ambience on the balcony, in... More

I have been dreaming about Le Fournil's almond croissants after I had one there on my first visit about a year ago. Popped in again on Sunday for coffee and an almond croissant but it was not as I remembered it. The middle of the croissant was fine but the end were so hard and dry. Just unpleasant.

This was our second visit to Plettenberg Bay & each time we visited Le Fournil for breakfast. The fact it was full on both occasions proves the restaurant's popularity & both times we were not disappointed, receiving excellent food & service. Thank you all!!

We quite like Le Forunil for breakfast/brunch, with courtyard atmosphere or overlooking Main Street. Food is quite good but not brilliant. I don't think I would order their coffee again, it's really strong and bitter. Service is very variable - from very bad to acceptable

Thank David M
