Great place for lunch just at the edge of Lookout beach. We both chose the mussels and chips - a huge portion and very tasty.

We were given a recommendation to come here by a local and were not disappointed. We sat outside at sundown overlooking the beaches and mountains and was an incredible backdrop. We had starters of garlic bread and cheese (a bit stodgy) and garlic mushrooms (simple but excellent) and for mains I had the seared tuna and my wife had the... More

My wife and I love to enjoy a beer at a place that offers superb views. The Lookout Deck did not disappoint. Located in Plettenberg Bay overlooking the Indian Ocean this place is truly ocean front.

We were in Plettenberg Bay for a very short business trip and we could only afford to take one evening out. As it were, we probably chose the best place for dinner in the area. Watching the sunset while we were served by some enthusiastic youngsters, and enjoying our meal, was a real pleasure.

Not a good review. Had the prawns that were small sized over spiced on dry rice. Would not give a second chance. That's just me.

Had a super breakfast here looking out over the bay where there were a group of surfers making the most of the huge waves that day.

We stopped here for lunch and had a table outside overlooking the beach. The views are fantastic and I can't fault the location. Food was ok albeit the calamari and hake was very greasy.
