Gansbaai Bistro restaurant
De Seemans Taphuis is perched on a cliff overlooking the Gansbaai harbour. The views from the balcony are, to say the least, fantastic! Many a great sunset has been seen from here with the harbour and boat lights slowly flickering on.
This is a laidback restaurant and bar and beach wear is almost mandatory in summer. Winter has everyone huddling inside in the warm atmosphere. The staff and owner are extremely friendly and service cannot be faulted. De Seemans Taphuis is family friendly and there is a lawn in front of the deck and a trampoline for the kids.
The meals are typical bistro-pub cuisine with some outrageous, or interesting, additions being added on a regular basis. Cold draughts are always a popular item and a good combination with the great tasting meals available. Sit down for a wholesome meal and refreshment with the family and enjoy the views of Gansbaai.
Please call for further information.

Plettenberg Bay French restaurant
Le Fournil de Plett is a French bakery in Plettenberg Bay serving breakfast, lunch and 'Truth' coffee. They have specialized in handmade artisan bread using stone ground organic flour.
Bread nowadays has a serious lack of crust but at Le Fournil de Plett you can feel, smell and taste the bread with crust. The French pastries are made using pure butter, Belgian chocolate and organic flour. Wherever possible our ingredients are free range, such as eggs and chicken, and organic, such as salad ingredients, beef and flour.
This is heaven. A peaceful and quite courtyard with fresh handmade artisan bread. There is no hotel breakfast that can compete with the slices of the bread from Le Fournil de Plett Bakery and Café.
Freshness is the key to the business. We recommend lunch and breakfast at the shady courtyard on a summer's day or a table by the cosy fire with a bowl of homemade soup if its cold. Jane and Florence look forward to welcoming you.
