Chez Laurent has moved to Nothandos Backpackers. When you book, get directions. Very simple rustic place to eat. Laurent has a few wines and soft drinks to purchase. I think he has beers as well.
No bring your own! Wine by the glass very inexpensive.
Menu limited and Laurent is famous for his Fillet Pepper Steak and shoestring chips and to finish his creme brulee. Laurent is friendly and fun and his staff are very sweet. The little restaurant is small enough so that all the visitors end up talking to each other in front of a lovely fire enjoying their delicious food at reasonable prices.
A very interesting experience!!

Great being with friends. Mixed feelings about meals. Venue ok but corkage crazy. We wish Laurent success.

Chez Laurent is well worth visiting for an excellent Fillet steak with perfect shoestring chips and a delicious salad. Laurent also made a Tarte Tatin to order which was absolutely delicious. One of our best meals in Plett!

Not what you expect at your average Backpackers!
Chef Laurent has cooked around the world and now keeps it simple at a quiet little backpackers place in a Plett back street!
Really friendly guy and the girls that work there are all lovely.
Seriously the best fillet steak & pepper sauce EVER. Even the fries and salad were very tasty. You must also leave space for the crème brulee so go there hungry!
Will be trying the moule mariniere on our next visit.
Thanks Laurent - a bien tot!

French chef Laurent Battut (of best-fillet-steak-in-Plett fame) has recently moved from the Market-on-Main to Nothando's, a 3 mins walk up-town. This is a very nice backpackers place but you don't have to stay there to book your own group into the licensed restaurant for a good meal of steak, mussels or prawns. Laurent also does home catering and together with his very sweet helper Nombasa he provided us last week with a superb tuna steak meal at our temporary home in Plett for a birthday meal for my wife.
Everything was well organised, food prepared in advanced but cooked in our kitchen and a spotless kitchen afterwards. Merci beaucoup, Laurent and good luck to you!
