The Plettenberg

Set in a contemporary environment, SeaFood at The Plettenberg draws hotel guests and locals alike to what Group Executive Chef Peter Tempelhoff calls ‘The Collection restaurant with the best view’.


The indoor dining section offers beautiful sights of the garden, pool and ocean, while the outdoor terrace is perfect for alfresco dinners, with mesmerising ocean vistas – especially at sunset.


True to its name, the restaurant is renowned for its ocean bounty, drawing inspiration from the rich marine life that can be found in Plettenberg Bay. The kitchen team, headed up by Head Chef Antoinette Meyer, prepares innovative, sustainable seafood dishes, together with a wide selection of meats and vegetables. Working closely with local suppliers, ingredients are always seasonal and kept at a superb level of quality.
