Here is our list of the best places to eat in Plett:

La Vista Dinners
We offer delicious three-course private or communal DINNERS, which our chef prepares with seasonally fresh produce. There are three main options regularly featured on the menu. Beautifully grilled Smoked Salmon, Beef Fillet prepared to your liking, or the option of fresh fish of the day bought from one of our local fisheries.
To ensure that our guests have a delightful dining experience with us, we require guests to pre-book, seeing all our produce is sourced locally.
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.
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.
