What makes Nguni Restaurant a highlight, is the White House next door. This venue plays host to ballet performances, contemporary dance and theatre.
We love a family-owner run restaurant. Nineteen89 keeps it classy. The food is gourmet; they've put a creative spin on a number of traditional dishes. But, don't be fooled. The simple decor and pleasant service are as unpretentious as you can get. You'll tuck into a number of artistically presented dishes from mapled butternut bacon soup to peanut Thai chicken curry. The Nineteen89 burger had one reviewer willing to drive 6 hours to Plettenberg Bay for another bite. The restaurant currently holds a 4,6 star rating on Google Reviews.
5. The Golden Palm
This gem may very well end up becoming your new obsession. It's a quaint spot with delicious Asian fusion dishes. There's dim sum, teriyaki bowls, poké bowls (sushi in a bowl), and more. It's good value for money if you're budget conscious. Ask about the dessert of the day. This treat will be sure to indulge your sweet tooth.
The Golden Palm has a 4,7 star rating. You may overeat but with such fabulous food, you'll regret nothing!
