The Fat Fish, Plettenberg Bay & George



Our philosophy is anything but fishy.

Quite simply, we serve the freshest seafood available coupled with moreish tapas, platters of delicate sushi and other mouthwatering original dishes, in our two distinctively warm and contemporary restaurants in Plettenberg Bay and George.

Our goal, day in and day out, is to consistently delight and surprise those who visit not only with the quality of food but our faultless friendly service.  When you come back we’ll do it all over again and again…
