Restaurants in Plett
The Italians are known for many things, but perhaps the one that we South Africans appreciate most, the one that lies closest to our hearts, is their enigmatic ability to cook, and that is where Enrico is the master. The Italian institute for Tourism awarded Ristorante Enrico the very prestigious "Italian Hospitality Seal" (Ospitalita Italiana, Quality Approved). Synonymous with Italian cuisine is excellence, quality and hospitality that is predictably accompanied by close attention to detail that surpasses simple “eating”. Restaurants that embrace the tradition of culinary excellence are considered genuine “Ambassadors of the ‘Italian palate’, and Italy’s rich culture. The natural beauty surrounding this highly-esteemed restaurant is one more reason why people flock to this beach.
