“A pleasant evening. But not outstanding.”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

We had a good evening, with a very good waitress Bongani. She had a good sense of humor. The fish stack dish was very good. The steak over cooked and not great. Nothing exceptional. An average resturant.

“Great Place!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Late afternoon lunch turned into a three courses. We took over a corner at the back and relaxed, enjoying the excellent food and watched the sun go down over the dock. The food was great and the service attentive. Even with so many restaurants to choose from in Knysna we ate here twice. Fabulous gourmet burgers and deserts that would make anyone weep with delight.

Very busy atmosphere and our guest house recommended tht we book in advance. This restaurant had great cocktails and a great selection of food. We decided to have fish which was really delicious.

“Best prawns ever”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The service was so friendly! The kitchen was nice enough to peel the prawns before hand, and the taste was amazing! I believe our waiter was called Doug, and we consider him the nicest waiter we've met on our trip through south africa. Nice place, great view and heaters to keep you warm on the terras. great food for great value!

Great Knysna Waterfront restaurant. Friendly staff, prompt service and great sushi. The outside seated area was heated and protected from the rain.
