We went here a couple of times while in Plett. As another reviewer says, it's a favorite of the locals. Always fresh, delicious fish but they also have other pub grub and the prices are good. Great view over the bay. It's a little hard to find because it's not downtown, but just ask a local and they'll point you in the right direction. You can dine indoors or out on the patio. There's even a fenced-in playground downstairs for the kiddos!

Value for money and tasting food including a variety of vegies. Beautiful views over Plettenberg Bay and Keurbooms Lagoon. Kids play area and relaxed atomosphere in the pub and restaurant.

I have been to this restaurant 4 or 5 times in the past 18 months, the most recent being for lunch on New Years eve with my family from Gauteng. Don't expect fine dining, it's not supposed to be! It is definitely a 5 star family type pub restaurant. They just don't serve bad food! Everything ordered is well cooked, well presented good old fashioned tasty food. The service is always beyond reproach and the best thing of all is that the meal will not cost you an arm and a leg. The daily lunchtime specials are particularly very affordable at around R55.00 for a good plate of food. Whilst their wine list may not suite a wine snob, there is a good enough selection of affordable, quafable wines. Finally an excellent view of the Plettenberg Bay to Keurbooms, a large lawned area for the kids to play in and ample safe parking.

Select any of their fresh daily line fish selections or their calamari (squid) either to eat right there or to take away to the beach or the tv. Always fresh and perfectly prepared and served with top class veggies. If its good enough for the locals to support, it must be good value & excellent quality.
