    La Vista Bar

    One can scarcely dream up a better location, if enjoying your favourite tipple, whilst watching the ocean lap the shore, is your way of seeing off a perfect day. The good news is that at La Vista Lodge in Plettenberg Bay, every hour is cocktail hour.

    We understand that during the holidays, a cheeky little cocktail craving never keeps regular hours, so if you have the urge to start early, then be our guest. We bring you some of the best cocktails in Plettenberg Bay, with one of the best views that dusk brings to our sandy shores.

    Wine List

    At la Vista we celebrate the region we live in and enjoy. So, when the time came to choose a signature wine, what better way to honour our fertile wine country than choosing a local wine. Local vineyard Andersons Wines produces a superb Leto Venus Sauvignon Blanc.

    Says winemaker Anton Smal, “This unusually large moth, the Leto Venus, breeds in the soft trunk of the Keurboom tree, in the picturesque area of Plettenberg Bay. It is here, in this unique area, that the Sauvignon Blanc grapes enjoy the cool sea breezes of the Indian Ocean, soft rolling mists as well as the warmth of the sun, all combining in ripening them to perfection. This white wine displays nuances of passion fruit, green melon and white pear. It has a wonderful vibrancy with a fresh balanced limey finish. A complete wine with dimensions of flavour.” Bon appetite!

    We also stock a variety of other South African wines, please enquire upon booking or arrival for a full list.
