We went to the Bistro for an early dinner around 6PM and were the first guests. Very attentative waitresses were quickly at hand and served drink instantaneously. The food came soon thereafter, My pasta Cape Seafood was excellent and a good portion. My daughter's sirloin steak as excellent and cooked to the point. Only the veggies were slightly overdone.

We chose this restaurant for a Saturday dinner on our relaxing holiday. The seafood platters was good & our waitress helpful. The relaxed mood changed when we asked for our bill and indicated that we would like to use The Entertainer. We weren't aware that you cant use the vouchers for the special board menu. But it was the way... More

Thank you for your review - I'm glad you enjoyed our seafood platters. As far as your suggestion of us asking Entertainer to remove us, even my lawyer has not been able to get any response from the Entertainer to do so. So we will remove ourselves from the program. I am relieved for you that you managed to find... More

My girlfriend and I are on holiday in Plettenberg Bay and are always looking for new restaurants to try out, preferably on a student budget. We purchased The Entertainer for 2017, and The Med Seafood Bistro is on it so we thought why not give it a shot. But let me tell you, going to this 'restaurant' was a poor... More

Average food that took very long to prepare when the restaurant was empty and bad service. Rude and disrespectful manageress. Would not recommend to anyone, much better restaurants to go to in Plett.
