Description: Lemon Grass Seaside Restaurant is beautifully situated at the water’s edge in Plettenberg Bay, with uninterrupted views of lagoon, mountain and ocean. The restaurant’s open, warm atmosphere is coupled with an exceptional location making it one of Plettenberg Bay’s top restaurants. Visual feasting aside, the award-winning dishes at Lemon Grass are equally delicious. From the freshest dish and seafood to mouth-watering meats and game, all drawing influence from international and traditional local cuisine. Each dish is carefully prepared from the freshest ingredients by our chefs to ensure that you are smiling from the first bite to the last!

Don't be fooled by the name this is not an Asian restaurant. However, it is very good and well worth the visit. We had lunch here on our first day in Plett. It is beautifully located overlooking the lagoon, dune and hills on the East side of Plett.

Both my lamb curry and my wife's linefish of the day were excellently prepared and presented with care.

One of the best meals we had in our 8 days in Plett.

We were staying at the adjoining hotel and we were not sure that the food could match the view out of the windows over looking the bay and we were wrong. The food here is excellent, there is a relaxed atmosphere with a sophisticated menu to suite most tastes.

Being by the cost there was a good seafood selection, some dishes have an Asian feel but there were also some classic dishes on the menu. I went for the seafood platter (be warned its big) and my partner went for the catch of the day. Both were cooked to perfection!

We also tried the cocktails, desserts and some Amarulla the finish. The only thing that was better than this was our waiter, he was excellent providing us with recommendations, being attentive and efficient and made our celebration really special. 5 star service would not do it justice.

Our waiter Don greeted at us at the door with such a nice smile and friendly attitude - we were made to feel welcome before we had even said hello!!
The views from the restaurant are amazing! It was chilly outside ....but cozy and warm inside. The food was good, the service was great. Will go again when the weather is warmer as I'd like to experience the outdoor section of the restaurant too.

We had dinner at The Lemon Grass with a group of 12. Food and service are outstanding. From the seafood platter, kudu fillet, crispy duck to salmon pasta, everything was delicious. Lovely desserts as well and nice selection of wine. Some finished with a Pinotage grappa. Will be back for more and try to come earlier to enjoy the superb location near the beach!
