Description: Surf Cafe perfectly blends together bar and restaurant to create a fantastically relaxed night out experience. With our selection of nostalgic surf trips meals and friendly vibe we'll have you in that holiday mode in no time, perhaps that is why its such a popular spot for locals. Regular Live music performances add to the occasion and we now offer free wifi for spending customers. Surf Cafe is also a great spot to catch live sporting events on the big screen including live streaming broadcasts of the ASP word surfing tour. Meals are simple, but good and priced to keep you coming back. "Good food, Great vibe, the place to be!"

It isn't the most salubrious Bar/Restaurant but its got character and provides the best curries in town and we love it. Seems to get the young local crowd on later on, but it adds to the buzz of the place. Michela ( hope that's how you spell it), is a lovely bright bubbly young waitress and was the one who told us to try the curries, and she was right. Very reasonably priced, drinks nicely served and we shall be back this week, guess what for, yes another curry.

Good music, unpretentious food and fantastic vibe. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Well worth a try! Good music most evenings and Wednesday is open mic night. This is our local when we're in Plett.

The food is good, the atmosphere in what is called 'cool'these days… But more for the younger folk. My strong this objection is that it seems to be that they allow smoking in part of the restaurant, which permeates the whole place.
I was shocked because my believe was that South Africa is very strict in its non-smoking laws.
