Long stretch of beach, lagoon in the background, Beacon Isle just chilling - Moby's is the one place you can go to experience all of Plett!

We were in a party of 10 (incl 4 chiidren) and were seated on the upper deck. The seafood platters we ordered did not come with shrimps and calamari as per the menu. The food was cold and the Angel fish was dry and cold.We had to pay R 20 separately for garlic sauce for a foccacia which cost R25.

We had lunch overlooking the beach. We had crayfish, oysters, calamari, and squid tentacles with beer. All were simple and fresh. Service is a bit slow

Service was immediate and friendly and efficient. Capuccinos tea and lattes was great. Breakfast was average but in line with what was ordered.

This is the only restaurant on the beach but the food and service were excellent. Most tables look out oveer the beach but are protected from the elements. A good variety in the menu and high quality food.

this place is the best for seafood lovers, they offer mouthwatering fish & chips which we enjoyed with a nice chilled beer(the flying fish) with the view of sunset at the plattenbergs beach ... really nice ambiance and friendly staff.. just one complain that fish that we ordered wasn't fresh, we could taste that too much of preservatives were added...

A super deck from which to watch the Indian Ocean rollers crash in. Attentive staff and good fresh seafood. Really good selection of beers too.

We really enjoyed our lunch here with a beautiful beach view, attentive service and a very modest bill. I had the grilled seafood kebab thing - it looked and tasted fantastic.
