We had a most enjoyable lunch at the restaurant. The food was very tasty and well presented, and the staff were friendly. The setting added to a wonderful experience

Such a beautiful setting but the service was terrible- the front of house manager was dressed unprofessionally and seemed out of his depth; the service was very slow and the staff did not appear trained. The food was average. So unfortunate- a year ago we raved about the restaurant! Other restaurants in Plett are amazing so we won’t choose Equinox again

You can't get close to the best beaches than here. Food is excellent. The staff is attentive. Parking is a nightmare but worth a bit of patience as once inside you relax to the max.

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Plettenberg Bay. It is situated just above the beach with lovely views out to the estuary and to the mountains. The staff were friendly and attentive at our lunchtime visit.

We had viewed the menu online and decided on the filet steak but upon arrival found that the lunch menu differed but anyhow the food was good – fishcakes for me and baked camembert for him to start then we both had the sirloin steak.

On our second visit – one evening, we had requested a table at the front overlooking the beach but when we arrived we were four rows back – evidently you have to book many months in advance to secure a front table.

Partner had carpaccio, however it was such a tiny portion that we at first thought it was an amuse bouche. We both ordered the filet steak but when it arrived partner’s steak was very underdone so had to be returned. By the time it came back cooked as requested, I had finished mine . The potato rostis that came with the main meal were not pleasant – looked and tasted as though they were straight out of a frozen pack from the supermarket.

The restaurant is obviously very popular and we found our evening experience not nearly as good as the lunchtime one even though the lunch menu is fairly limited.

Even without a reservation, the staff of Equinox welcomed us for their Sunday Lunch. The four course set menu was delicious. I usually cannot finish a four course meal but the portion sizes and variety of food was just perfect. Even my husband was sattisfied.
