“Arrived late...no problem”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Arrived late but made to feel very welcome. Lovely food and a great location (we walked from the Plettenberg Bay Hotel - but were advised to get a taxi back). The food was lovely and they were very careful about one of our party who has a severe shellfish allergy. Kob, prawns, tempura prawns, chicken etc all with some good sauces. A few beers and a few bottles of wine, plus the food came to £60 for 5 of us! Great value. Next day saw 5 whales just outside in the bay. Perfect

“Perfect place to spend the afternoon”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

After a morning full of activities, this was our favorite place to wind down the afternoon with a late lunch and drinks while the kids played in the ocean. The wait staff was the friendliest of all the places we visited.

“Best views - good food”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Location location! Basic rustic style restaurant with great views and great food. You are on the beach. We stopped for lunch. Best hake and salad I ever had. Big portion. They are always very busy. Good value for money!

“Stunning views and ambience”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This is a very popular restaurant located on Lookout Beach in Plettenberg Bay. We ate there several times during our four days in Plett - the view from the deck is unrivalled and the food is of a good standard. There is also a nice fun and relaxed vibe about the restaurant and they do not rush you out as soon as you're done - even though they are very busy and have queues of people waiting to get in. The food is generally well prepared, if a bit inconsistent at times, depending on how much pressure the kitchen is under - we had a big seafood platter to share between my husband and I on two separate occasions - on the one very busy day, it was an average meal; but the next time we ordered it was quieter, and the platter was much better prepared. Definitely recommended in the Plettenberg area - the views and atmosphere alone are a winner!
