Plett Restaurants rank among the best in South Africa in Dineplan Top 100.

Whether you’re stepping – sun-kissed – off the beach, spending a wonderful afternoon meandering through the Plett winelands or looking for a unique experience of South African cuisine, Plett Tourism is pleased to congratulate three well-deserving restaurants for cracking the nod in Dineplans Top 100 Reviewers’ Choice Awards 2023.

Plett’s fabulously fresh and charming Newstead was included in the top ten restaurants in South Africa! At ninth place, that’s an impressive review for a boutique wine estate along the Garden Route. However, that simply adds to the appeal of Newstead Lund Family Vineyards. One of Plett’s most established wine estates, Newstead is owned and run by Doug & Sue Lund. Running through their achievements and recognitions over the past decade, there’s a great sense of what is true to the Lunds and to Newstead: care, craft, people, quality… generally, the things that make life worthwhile. You’ll find that on their estate, and in every glass of their wine and every dish served. Find out more  

One of the oldest buildings in Plett settled into 44th position on the Top 100 list: Restaurant 1777 at The Old Rectory Hotel and Spa. The original building was constructed in 1777 as an army barracks for the Dutch East India Company before being converted into an Anglican rectory in 1869. The main dining room sits in the oldest part of this beautiful hotel and an exquisite, centuries-old stone wall adds warmth and character to the space. Understandably, the building’s heritage inspires a bistro-style menu that draws on Dutch, English and South African influences. The Old Rectory shared in a post “Thank you so much Dineplan and, of course, to all the guests who shared their experiences at the restaurant. We consider it a pleasure and a privilege to serve mouth-watering food to people from all over the world every day. And, reading positive feedback from all these happy customers is the cherry on top!” The hotel, spa and restaurant teased some exciting news by adding the following “We look forward to refining the dining experience at The Old Rectory even more in the coming year; finding inspiration in the rich history of the heritage building in which we sit as well as South Africa’s colourful cultural tapestry. So, watch this space!” Find out more
