The Plettenberg — situated on a rocky headland in one of South Africa’s most spectacular beach towns — is the ultimate escape.

This owner-managed property, with 35 individually decorated rooms and suites and two Villas, showcases the most breathtaking vistas in Southern Africa with views of the ocean, mountains and endless stretches of golden beach.

The Plettenberg is situated in the heart of Plettenberg Bay, along the adventure-rich Garden Route which is world–renowned for its excellent selection of outdoor activities. From regular dolphin and whale sightings to bungee jumping, treetop canopy tours and other more daring pursuits in the surrounding countryside, The Plettenberg is the ideal place to relax and unwind, recharge and reinvigorate.

SeaFood at The Plettenberg
A reflection of its seaside location, SeaFood at The Plettenberg is a celebration of the local marine bounty and seasonal produce of thePlettenberg Bay area.

Signature dishes that incorporate the flavours and natural ingredients of the Garden Route have been designed by Antoinette Meyer and SeaFood’s culinary team to reflect a taste of the bay. Set in a contemporary, relaxed environment, with an emphasis on fresh fish, SeaFood at The Plettenberg showcases a sustainable taste of the region.

The menu offers diverse fish and seafood styles: The Formosa Bay seafood soup, orange glazed line fish, tempura prawns, West Coast mussels, Mossel Bay sole, fish and chips, spiced calamari salad and, for the ultimate seafood indulgence, The Plettenberg Seafood Platter.

The menu also features a selection of non-fish options, which have become highlights on our menus across The Collection by Liz McGrath and include: the famous cheese soufflé, roast prime rib of beef and the Plettenberg gourmet cheese burger.

SeaFood at The Plettenberg brings the sand, beach and sea into the restaurant through its colours, mood and design, which combine elegantly with the spectacular views of Formosa Bay.

SeaFood at The Plettenberg is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.

Leading off The Sun Lounge of The Plettenberg, The Sandbar is an exquisite, contemporary cocktail bar and lounge frequented by both local patrons, as well as the South African elite who choose to holiday in Plettenberg Bay.

The glass, white leather, marble and natural oak finishes blend to form a striking design, highlighted by clever lighting. The large photographic panels on the walls offer an outdoor perspective of the Plettenberg Bay area.

Throughout the day, The Sandbar is the perfect meeting spot for drinks and tea, and in the evenings it is ideal for enjoying award-winning South African wines, a variety of champagnes and an array of carefully crafted signature cocktails.
