One cannot often find a tasty and tender oxtail stew but I was delighted to find it here. Friendly efficient staff the manager knew to bring a finger bowl because oxtail must be finished off with the fingers!

We were a big party of 18 people having a get together for drinks and supper. Plet at this time of year is overflowing so we decided to try the Hotel restaurant. This turned our to be a good decision we got a table with a view. Excellent service and decent food. Well done.

We had breakfast, lunch and dinner on various days in this restaurant and experienced a bit of a mixed bag. Breakfast always good at a fair price. My wife's Burger was made of processed meat and not very tasty. My pasta was excellent. Dinner excellent, but rather stick to meat. The Springbok Shank and the Beef Ribs excellent. A subtle... More

Food was good, did not get a dessert spoon with dessert as they had run out of clean spoons. Bit pricey for the experience we had. They... More

During our week long stay in Plettenberg Bay this past holiday, we ate here most nights! Amazing food, amazing friendly service. One of the best restaurants we have eaten at, even the kids loved it! They serve a mouthwatering Lamb Shank, a must for meat lovers!! Happy to recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great experience!
