About SeaFood at 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 views of the 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 Richie Rorich, 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.

Created by Peter and Richie to reflect a taste of the bay, signature dishes at SeaFood include Blackened Tuna Tataki and Mossel Bay Sole, while carnivores can tuck into Grass-Fed Beef Fillet and Laingsburg Lamb – with a carefully curated wine list completing the culinary experience. The relaxed Café Menu offers hearty dishes such as ‘Proper Fish & Chips’, Charcuterie Platters and the PlettenBurger, and guests may also book ahead to enjoy High Tea at the restaurant.

It smells like old frying oil. A disappointing menu for a fish restaurant. You shouldn't eat anything.

A great experience with my Fiance, she was blown away and I loved the little touches, I ordered the steak and was recommended the right glass of wine without asking to go with it. Definitely a great fine dining experience especially with the views of the ocean and mountains. Regards Daniel van Deventer

Ridiculous that we had to book, and eat at 17:30, because you were “full”. It was empty!

Despite making a reservation, nobody knew of our reservation. Confirmation was emailed, SMSed and I called in for a special table request. The table was not even set for 5 people. Not professional at all. I would not recommend the restaurant to anybody for any special occasions. The waiter was great. Food was ok. We ordered the fillet and seafood platters.

Great venue, superb service. Food choices are sufficient and the atmosphere is hard to comment on due to COVID. Quality of the food was excellent, the wine list is small but well selected with an ability to buy a glass or a bottle from most wines on the menu. I really enjoy this spot and certainly recommend it!

This was the most “shocking High Tea” experience of my life! What a total embarrassment for the Seafood restaurant! in a lovely hotel.. you should be ashamed. My husband and I were the only guests for a “Mandatory Booking”. What didn’t you cancel if there were no takers for your St. Patrick’s Day event? Absurd and the food presentation was DISGUSTING!!

Food was fantastic. The Bouillabaisse soup delicious. It was the best meal we had in Plettenberg during our week there. The decor felt like out of a 1950's film and the dining room was a bit cavernous. I would try and split it up a little into different levels? - a little bit more intimate But all 10 of us agreed the food was lovely Robin Sellar Edinburgh

Lunchen auf der Terrasse mit Blick über die Bay ist ein einfach herrlich! Der perfekte Service und das sehr gute Essen lassen es eine rundum gelungene Erfahrung werden. Für uns ein Must Do auf der Rundreise!

Very disappointed by the lack of Seafood. Not really a very warm welcome. A 5 hour drive to visit the Hotel as it was somewhere l had always wanted to visit wasn't really worth it. We much prefer The Cellars Hohenort.
