Most of these eateries are to be found along Plett’s Main Street. You’ll see places like LM, a well-loved spot that serves up Portuguese and Mozambican dishes along with a great selection of seafood. If you’re in the mood for pizza, check out long-running Cranzgots. Kitchen Café also serves up great pizza alongside a wide variety of contemporary pasta dishes like the one picture here, plus lots more.

Down by Central Beach, you’ll come across another of Plett’s seafood specialists in the form of Moby Dick’s. Serving a lip-smacking array of locally caught fish and shellfish, this restaurant also offers breakfasts, steaks, burgers and more.

A little bit more informal, the Pie Shop on Church Street serves up some of the most delicious savoury pies you’ll find anywhere. For a quick meal at a very reasonable price, you really can’t do better.

Another great spot to check out for breakfast, lunch or dinner is the Surf Café at the Beacon Isle Centre. All the dishes here are inspired by surf spots throughout the world so you’ll find everything from curry to Mexican dishes on the very affordable menu.

So whether you’re looking for a hearty breakfast, a quick snack or a relaxed evening meal, you won’t be short of choice in Plett.
