Description: SeaFood at The Plettenberg combines an array of elements to create an unsurpassed dining experience. The sand, beach and sea have been brought into the restaurant in the colours, mood and design. Unrivalled views of the breath-taking Formosa Bay are complimented by the decor, and together they create the perfect platform for the SeaFood cuisine. Here the chefs create modern South African fare that is seasonally influenced. The menu - designed by The Collection's award-winning Executive Chef Peter Tempelhoff and his team - places great emphasis on fresh produce from local green-friendly suppliers and this gives SeaFood at The Plettenberg the unique ability to showcase a true taste of the bay.

“Plettenberg Sea food”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Mussels were the best I tried out here - and there is plenty of competition! With food this good you don't need to go outside the hotel - the chef is married to the GM

“Expected better”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

This is the restaurant in a Relais and Chateaux hotel so we expected a high standard. The dining room is attractive and promised silver service and food to match.
Slow roasted belly of pork was tasty but came with strange looking and tasting crackling in roll shapes served on a plank of wood. Slow roasted duck was overwhelmed with the taste of the ginger. Excellent vanilla creme brulee. Glass of merlot was 1/5 of a glass for R40.
Service was very professional but food did not match our expectation, unlike the bill

“Great seafood, try to get a table by the window”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

The setting is beautiful and the vew across the bay are spectacular. When booking request a seat by the window so you can soak up the views, dinign a sunset is really special. The seafood and fish here are particularly good. The starters and main courses were delicious and the desert which was recommended to us by one of the staff (a traditional south african pudding) was incredible delicious. We had very attentive service. I would happily recommend a long leisurely dinner here.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Delicious food, wonderful menu, great staff, lovely atmosphere - a little pricey but worth it! I recommend the fish and chips - a posh version and so perfect!
