We had lunch here overlooking Plettenberg Bay. It was cheap and cheerful, clean and with good service. What else can you ask for? I would certainly recommend a visit.

The food is nothing special and a little under performing. Both dishes lacked flavor and creativity. The atmosphere on the other hand is nice. More pub food and a fitting vibe. Maybe better for drinks then food.

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!"
