Every time we visit Plettenberg bay chez Laurent is one of our first stops. The standard remained the same since our last visit 2 years ago. He still offers a very simple menu, but everything is of a high standard. The streak rolls and especially...More

Laurent is a well-known chef in Plett and he is good! If you like sort of pavement / flea market style dining with a buzz then this is for you. His steaks are excellent.

A superb flambé pepper steak prepared with care in a simple venue. Laurent is a great host and you get a genuine piece of Gallic humour thrown in as a bargain

Wow! Its not a real restaurant but more like a food hall with some restaurants. You bring your own wine & glas (dont forget that!) and enjoy the excellent food. Steak is what you get and a brilliant Crème brûlée :-)
