We had our Christmas Day lunch here while on holiday from the UK. It does not take bookings so we had been warned to expect long queues but maybe because it was Christmas Day we walked straight in and were seated immediately. Our waiter was really friendly and helpful and the food very good. Great views across the water - a really unusual Christmas Lunch for us Brits - seared tuna salad, mussels and Cape Malay curry but all delicious and a memorable experience.

This place was really full most days we went, but the venue is really well managed and you never feel crammed in. The staff is very knowledgeable on the menu offerings and are very efficient with time estimates on how long the food will take to be made in these busy times. If they say 20 minutes it will be 20 minutes. I was very impressed by how well this restaurant is run and everything works like clockwork. The food that comes out of the kitchen is well prepared and looks and tastes really good.

I would recommend this establishment based on how well it is run and the quality of food, but you may need to wait a little in busy times. However the staff will be very accurate in advance of how any minutes you will be expected to wait.

Season is always a busy time in Plett, but these guys are not sacrificing what they can offer for a quick buck. Well done. We will be back.

My friends and I visit the Deck quite often. This is not a fine dining restaurant but a place where families and friends gather to have a lovely affordable meal.
I have always had a good experience there. The food is very good and versatile and
the service as well. they also serve a mean cocktail! My favourite one is Sex on the
Beach!!!

We went in high season and it did not disappoint! Very popular so expect to wait for a table at peak times.

Went for a family lunch in a party of 10. View is great although over an hour wait for our food. When it came they brought 2 meals and another 2 meals 10 minutes later. The 4 were finished eating before the rest came, not good.
