We were a group of 12, in the middle of Plettenberg bay's holiday season. Even though the restaurant was full, the service was great and the staff charming. I enquired about a dish I had had, and enjoyed, on a previous occasion and couldn't find on the menu. The owner insisted on preparing it for me anyway and it was... More

In full understanding that the restaurant was full and things were busy, we enquired where our food was (4 simple meals) after having waited nearly an hour and half (and being told about 20 minutes before that our food was nearly ready), my husband was sworn at by the owner in front of the whole restaurant. This was obviously incredibly... More

Dear Sally. Have been waiting in anticipation for this review. I knew it was coming. Turns out your husband is not only a wannabe bully but a liar. Luckily for me it was in a full restaurant, in front of other patrons and my staff that he verbally abused ME. He stood at the entrance to the kitchen with his... More

Quick lunch while enjoying beautuful Plett. Great setting for people watching! Probably the best prawns in a very long time. Very tasty chicken liver starter. Friendly service with many smiles. Chilled wine to round off a great experience

Hard to put my finger on it as there wasn't anything terribly bad, it was just that when compared to the other restaurants that we have visited in SA, on this evening, it was only alright. The waiter was okay as was the food but overall a little underwhelming.

I really wanted this place to be different to the other fish in the sea but alas when we were handed menus at the door to go and find a table at the smoking section outside, needless to say, it didn't help the situation. Perhaps we will have a more pleasant experience next time. However the food was good which... More

LMinPlett, Owner at LM in Plett, responded to this review

Hi Sir. Apologies that you didn't have a good experience on your arrival at LM. Perhaps it was because you arrived without a reservation in the middle of our busiest season and the only tables available were on the terrace which happens to be the only place where one may smoke. The outside tables are on a first come first... More

Luckily we made a booking as by the time we returned at 7 the restaurant was full - and they continued to turn people away. It was a cold and windy night so we were glad to be inside. The service was warm & friendly and my chicken liver dish delicious. In fact our meal was very good and the... More
