Fabulous beach side location downtown Plettenberg. Inside or outside dining, with an extensive menu with a number of dishes with a "Malay twist. Good value for money and would return for more.

This is right on the beach. We went for lunch. There was a very capable guitarist playing live music which added to the very peaceful atmosphere. The service and food were both very good. The Marlin carpaccio was especially delicious.
