We stopped in for some lunch and refreshments. We had Calamari and chips and being a local Jeffreys Bay person, we found the meal very plain for the region. I am sure that our “out of towners” would find the calamari very nice. I think that our regional restaurants need to take calamari up a few notches because I think... More

There is actually very little to say about this splendid on the beach restaurant. Again we had wonderful service. Everything here is always like clockwork. My group of 32 clients had a wonderful lunch in an hour. See you soon Moby Dicks

This is value for money. We stopped over for a late lunch and had prawn and avo salad and snitzels with mushroom sauce. The service was OK and the food was tasty. You have views across the way to the Beacon Island hotel. The beach is also special with out any rocks. We would visit again if in the area.

We had lunch here on our last day in Plett. I had excellent Angel fish and chips in a basket (felt a bit like a throwback to the 70s) and my wife good mussel broth. Not fancy, but fine

Took my two nieces here for a new experience. Has a fabulous view, but was spoilt by lack of interest from staff, sticky menues, sticky tables etc. Food was good when it did arrive.

Moby's is basically an institute in Plett. It's situated right on the beach and has the most amazing views over the beach and ocean. It has great fish and chips and there's free wifi which is great when you're travelling. It's not badly priced either, which is amazing given it's location. Unfortunately there are zero gluten free options so not... More

This place is a great hangout with friends, family or even just a couple. The top part is a bit rickety at a glance, but once you are seated at one of the outer tables with a cocktail or two…..that view from the top is divine!
