Description: 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).

Located in the Waterfront area of Knysna, 34 South has a very varied menu with a wide range of sea food as well and food for 'landlubbers'.

Despite the restaurant being very busy at the time of our booking, the service was still quick and efficient and the food was delicious and competitively priced.

Great place to go if you want a quick bite. The ambience inside is of the busy bustling establishment that it is.

Tip for fellow travellers : 34 South seems to be very popular so I would advise making a reservation rather than just turning up.

Recommended to us but like many restaurants in the quays, very busy and noisy. Ordered Fish Paella but got Fish Pasta, didn't want to wait for swap as others would have finished.Food was OK and prices were reasonable but very quick turnaround style cafe'.

The sushi was very bland, the line fish just as tasteless and the service poor. Nice atmosphere but not good quality.

They managed to forget our starters and bring the mains. Once we told them the error they offered to 'keep the mains on the heater'. 30 mins later the starters turn up. We said we hoped that we would not get the same re-heated main courses passed back to us, they promised not. 30 mins later the mains returned - luke warm and the very same meals and plates, sprinkled with herbs to try to make them look like new plates. Luke warm shellfish and ribs. When we protested they denied they were the same dishes, until we explained how we knew they were the same. Only then did they offer to cook new dishes, now some 1.5hours after we arrived for a meal. We decided to leave, and were offered as an apology that our drinks bill would be wiped and we would only need to pay for the starters we ate. when the bill arrived, after another delay, only 2 glasses of beer had been 'wiped'. We didn’t have the energy to complain and went to the Chinese restaurant around the corner. That was a further mistake - it was the worst Chinese meal I have every eaten. Overall impression of the boardwalk area is over priced, poor service and rubbish food.
