We had a super lunch at fat fish last week. 2 had the Fish and Chips and 2 the grilled hake lunch. We noticed that it was very pricey compared to other Plett restaurants, but later found out (when I went to use the ladies Room), that the Fish and Chips were on a "buy 2 and pay for 1 special" that week. Why did the waitress not tell us when she hand us the menu?? The service was really efficient, just a pity that the owner/manager who was present, never even bothered to approach any of the lunchtime guests and say hello etc. Yes, it is a lot more expensive that say the ski boat club and other fish and chip places, but the fish was cooked beautifully and the sides were just as good.

Came for dinner with friends in May. Restaurant is beautiful with great views, but the food was just ok. The Asian chicken salad was dissapointing so was the handmade chips, but I can recommend the Chilli kingklip. The gentleman (Paul) that served us was very pleasant and made our evening very enjoyable.

Nice setting, good service, expensive comparing to restaurants in Cape Town - but very good fish as a main. The starters were dissapointing - very small portions - calamari was oily and my husband's chorizo not good.

This restaurant was recommended to us and what a great choice it turned out to be. The service is excellent, the food delicious and on a chilly night the lovely hot fire warmed the restaurant and made it so cosy and warm. What a great place for a decent meal at reasonable prices. Would highly recommend it, specially if you want fish!
