Not exactly a restaurant... Not exactly a bar... Definitely not a deli... Well, not exactly a deli... It's an eating place, a drinking place and definitely a meeting place. And it's a gift shop, a clothing emporium, a food store, a fish monger and a bakery, too. And the finest wine shop this side of the grape curtain. And it's always on one, single line of latitude - the 34th parallel (but only on the Waterfront at the Knysna Quays).

Sushi roll was delicious, they also have a good traditional fish and chips with vinegar which we quite enjoyed.

Food was fab and service from Zuime was excellent. Thank you for having us. We will be back. The oysters where the best but the menu catered for everyone’s different tastes.

Quality of food at 34 South remains excellent. Ever so slightly pricey, but compared with some other offerings in Knysna good value for money. Service is efficient and friendly. Very enjoyable and will continue visiting. Paiella was delicious.

Boring and unimaginative. Portions are small and bland. Went here for breakfast and was very disappointed.

For a place that prides itself on its seafood, it amazing how they managed to mess that up when I was there. I ordered oysters. Took 45 minutes to arrive, and were of very poor quality - and they knew they were poor, but served...More

We ate here when passing through Knysna on a bicycle tour. We had a table for 10 and found the staff very efficient and friendly. Everyone really enjoyed their food and we will definitely return to this establishment.

I haven’t a clue as we were there in February this year. We are in UK now, so I suggest you ask the restaurant direct! Sorry
