The Fat Fish George

The Fat Fish in George, offers the exact same delightfully original menu as its sister restaurant in Plettenberg Bay. Enjoy the finest, sustainably caught, seafood, the freshest sushi as well as a wide range of other innovative dishes in a gem of a location.

The lush, beautifully landscaped garden complete with water features, outdoor BBQ, and children’s play area, offers true respite on a hot Garden Route summer’s day. While the stylish, contemporary interior features a series of more intimate dining spaces on varying levels, with three fireplaces, to cosy up to in the colder wet winter months. In addition, The Fontus, Special Events Room, is available for private celebrations and often plays host to carefully curated food and wine pairings. 

The menu is predominantly seafood-based and perfectly complemented by an award-winning wine list, classic cocktails, and extensive craft gin selection. Be sure to look out for their regular “From the Fire” alfresco feasts and Paella specials out in the garden when the weather allows.

Having worked internationally for a number of years, chef patron Christo Nortier has returned home. As passionate as he is experienced, Christo is determined to offer Garden Route diners a true culinary experience and an opportunity to venture away from the conventional in beautiful surroundings.

Our lights are always on!
