Savour the Bounty of the Ocean ...

SeaFood at The Plettenberg combines an array of elements to create an unsurpassed dining experience. The sand, beach and sea have been brought into the restaurant in the colours, mood and design. Unrivalled views of the breath-taking Formosa Bay are complimented by the décor, and together they create the perfect platform for the SeaFood cuisine.

Here the chefs create modern South African fare that is seasonally influenced. The menu places great emphasis on fresh produce from local green-friendly suppliers and this gives SeaFood at The Plettenberg the unique ability to showcase a true taste of the bay.

Leading off The Sun Lounge of The Plettenberg, The Sandbar is an exquisite, contemporary cocktail bar and lounge frequented by both local patrons, as well as the South African elite who choose to holiday in Plettenberg Bay.

The glass, white leather, marble and natural oak finishes blend to form a striking design, highlighted by clever lighting. The large photographic panels on the walls offer an outdoor perspective of the Plettenberg Bay area.


The Sandbar

Throughout the day, The Sandbar is the perfect meeting spot for drinks and tea, and in the evenings it is ideal for enjoying award-winning South African wines, a variety of champagnes and an array of carefully crafted signature cocktails.

The newest addition to the Collection’s culinary team, Kaylinn just joined The Plettenberg from Grande Provence in Franschhoek; other career highlights include working at Waterkloof in Somserset West, The River Club in Zambia and Denis Island in the Seychelles. Arguably The Collection restaurant with the best view, SeaFood at The Plettenberg’s indoor dining room and outdoor terrace boast the most mesmerising ocean vistas. As the name suggests, the restaurant is renowned for its ocean bounty, drawing inspiration from the rich marine life that can be found in Plettenberg Bay.

Kaylinn works closely with local suppliers to offer guests innovative, sustainably sourced seafood dishes. The key to her success? “Perseverance. Being in the kitchen is a constant learning curve, you keep going to thrive and prosper – it’s what I love about it.”
