Family Saturday evening meal which was all fine. Mexican choices mostly which suited us and there was also a band playing which added a little to the atmosphere. Food was good, welcome was friendly and the bill was reasonable.

Always one of our first port of calls when we return to Plett every January, as usual the Indonesian and Durban Curry were spot on along with the great service. Love this place, always friendly, good atmosphere and live music most nights.

Surf Cafe perfectly blends together bar and restaurant to create a fantastically relaxed night out experience. With our selection of nostalgic surf trips meals and friendly vibe we'll have you in that holiday mode in no time, perhaps that is why its such a popular spot for locals. Regular Live music performances add to the occasion and we now offer free wifi for spending customers. Surf Cafe is also a great spot to catch live sporting events on the big screen including live streaming broadcasts of the ASP word surfing tour. Meals are simple, but good and priced to keep you coming back. "Good food, Great vibe, the place to be!"
