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.

Ausgezeichnetes Essen vom Anfang bis zum Ende, da an einem Tisch in der Ecke allerdings vom sonst sehr freundlichem Personal öfters übersehen worden, was für ein Lokal dieser Qualität nicht passieren dürfte

I sat under a still starlit evening to the chorus of waves crashing on the shore and enjoyed the most delicious meal here. Highly recommend.

We had a lovely breakfast for 13 people on Christmas Day. Service and food was excellent! It’s not easy to get eggs right for such a crowd, but the food was perfectly executed. Thanks for allowing us to continue this family tradition!

Service perfekt, nicht jede Speise mehr so toll wie gewohnt. Weinpreise ziemlich gestiegen, aber insgesamt immer noch ein sehr zu empfehlender, wunderbarer Abend

The Plettenberg is in such an amazing setting. We have an amazing view and even saw a school of dolphins. The food and service from Bulie was absolutely great. Will definately be back.

i could not fault the wine pairing menu.BUT your al a cart menu is too "hot". that is why you have very few locals in the restaurant. if your normal menu reflected last nights offering i would come every week.

Chef Ritchie Rorich excelled himself with the meal we were served on Saturday. Every dish was faultless, but it was the starters in particular that truly impressed - unusual ingredient pairings were successfully pulled off and the dishes were fully in tune with the season. My only slight criticism is that the eatery is expensive for South African budgets, but, when the quality of the food is considered, this can be understood. Ritchie came to meet us personally and struck us a very intuitive and talented, though still humble, young chef with a great commitment to his team and trade. Always being ready and open to learn is a wonderful quality in a chef and Ritchie personifies that. The Plettenberg is indeed fortunate to have him!
