I was recommended Liv Green from a friend of a friend - while it is an adventure to find (you don´t need to walk through the water park to reach it, there is a small dirt road to the left of the entrance, follow this round and there is ample parking, watched on by the monkeys in the trees -...

Went here on the basis of all the "5 star" reviews. Not good at all. Coffee weak and tasted like warm pond water, was not served what I ordered, no serviettes - service pleasant though

We decided to eat here based on the excellent reviews. Completely disappointed. Difficult to find - you have to walk through a water park to reach it - and food overpriced and below standard. I had a burger with a stale bun and defrosted undercooked patty. Owner and staff very attentive and friendly

Lovely little Restaurant at Plettenberg bay, good smoothies, good food and the set up is lovely. The veggies and herbs are grown in the garden there so everything is fresh and local.

Everything is fresh and tasty Very popular place with cyclists and families with young kids and seemingly very popular with tradesmen! A little bit difficult to find, so don't miss the sign. Great area with picnic tables under the shade of the trees along the river. I will order anything on their menu and be confident I will love it.... More
