We stayed at Leisure Isle and dined one of our evenings whilst on honeymoon. Food was superb, elegant restaurant with attentive and friendly staff. Would recommend the lamb shank. Good value for money for fine dining. Should have dined both evenings here!

I was impressed with Daniela' at Leisure Isle Lodge before we even arrived. We had booked a few days prior but on the afternoon of our booking I received a phone call suggesting that we arrive a little earlier as a table of 7 had booked to arrive the same time as our party of 3 and they were concerned that the party of 7 would have their orders in before us which would cause us to wait. Is that not service!
It is a small restaurant with a lovely outlook. Table settings was everything of the best and I found the two staff serving the restaurant to be well trained and very friendly.
Service was excellent but I did find the wine list to be pricey. Our starters of a Calamari salad was a choice and the calamari was very tender. Our main courses of Karoo lamb shank and a beef fillet were both excellent, the beef fillet was cooked to perfection and the lamb shank also.
A most enjoyable evening was had and my only comment is that it would have been nice to have had interaction with owner / management but let that not detract from the staff that served us as they were excellent.
If you are looking for a slightly more formal fine dining experience in Knysna then you will not do better than eating at Daniela's at Leisure Isle Lodge.

Yum, yum, yum-every course was cooked to perfection. My absolute favorite was the chocolate fondant-divine!!! Superb combination of poached pears, caramel icer cream and heavenly fondant. The wine pairing is brilliant. Skip starters, dessert is a must

Lovely tiny restaurant with excellent Service and great food! We spent a nice Valentine's Dinner there and were delighted by the decoration and also food. Lockten directly at Bollard Bay.
