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).

We had an enjoyable meal with friendly efficient service and a pleasant atmosphere.
Food is a bit on the expensive side but very tasty and good value if you're not a budget traveller. They have a great kids menu and the sushi was really good too!

Restaurant feels a little grubby... could do with a good scrub.. but we were there at the end of a very busy week on a Sunday night so possibly not always so.
:-( WINE....
UNFORTUNATELY the wine menu is grossly overpriced and the MCC(South Africas champagne
equivalent) is horribly expensive in comparison to Cape Town and Joburg restaurants...
this was disappointing as it was Oyster Festival so one expected to have Oysters and "Champayne", but left feeling a bit ripped off!

A party of 5 went to 34 South In Knysna, South Africa this summer (their winter). The service was GREAT!!! The waiter, Sash, was friendly, pleasant, helpful, and professional. They were busy, but we never felt neglected or rushed. He also gave us hints on other great places for the rest of our trip.

We visited 34 South as a family with teenagers. We had a great meal consisting of calamari, oysters, fresh line fish and paela. All the food was very good and the atmosphere special.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our time at 34 South but the food was nothing to rave about. Our sushi seemed like it had been rushed and was falling apart. The grilled calamari was a sizeable portion and enjoyable. We had friendly service however it wasn't always efficient.

A favourite spot for sushi in Knysna. Great atmosphere and vibe. Great food!

Doesn't feel as clean as I'd like it. Menus and table cloths are grubby. Might be time for a few interior improvements.
