Concierge.com's insider take:
The sign above the blue-and-white–tiled eatery still reads "Cornuti Deli," but those modest days are long gone. Cornuti al Mare has grown into one of Plett's most beloved restaurants and bars. Wine selections like the R62 Unplugged and the Fat Bastard chardonnay set the jovial mood at the lively, sparely furnished dining room. Grab a table on the porch for sea views, and start light with the herb salad with arugula, grilled tomatoes, gooseberries, goat cheese, and pine nuts. Then share one of the 23 pizzas on offer, including more creative options like prawn teriyaki. However, what you really come here for is the seafood, in particular the spicy cacciucco, an Italian fish stew topped with langoustine. For dessert, order the chocolate-and-banana spring roll, deep-fried and covered in caramel and nuts.
Open daily noon to 10 pm.
