We are fortunate to have an enticing variety of eateries in, and around Plettenberg Bay. When looking for a restaurant in Plett, you might be tempted to visit only those known for their seafood and, while we strongly recommend that you enjoy our seafood (you’re at the coast, after all!), there are many other dining experiences to add flavour to your Plett holiday!
To combine a visit to our Saturday, organic market with a famous “bush breakfast”, head to the Harkerville Market, for a dash of continental style right here in Plettenberg Bay, Le Fournil de Plett serves the most magnificent French treats and for a sinfully (or healthily) delicious treat and a red cappuccino, Clare’s Cakes, in Main Street, is the place to go.
LUNCH & DINNER
DINING WITH A VIEW
Sipping a glass of bubbly, while nibbling on a prawn and watching the dolphins in the surf is one of Plett’s greatest delights. Sit back and take in the views of the bay and mountains at the following Plett restaurants:
Lookout Deck: a Plettenberg Bay “institution” with views overlooking the Keurbooms Lagoon and Lookout Beach.
Popular for: Fish & Chips, Prawns in a Beer Mug and Mussel Pot
Enrico’s: A tantalising taste of Italy on the shores of Keurboomstrand. A stroll along the beach that ends with an alfresco meal at Enrico’s is not only the perfect end to a day at the beach, it also turns those traditional Plett views on their ear with breathtaking views back across the bay to Robberg.
Popular for: Traditional Italian Fare, Pizza and Pasta
Emily Moon Restaurant: step away from the coast for a moment and be transported into the golden, magical world of Emily Moon. Set on the banks of the Bitou River, Emily’s offers an eclectic menu, shabby-chic ambience and breathtaking sunset views.
Popular for: The menu changes but expect seasonal and locally sourced ingredients with South African flavours.
