I'm not at all surprised that this is rated as the Number 1 restaurant in Knysna. The setting is spectacular and the food and service is always of the highest standard. I tried the Trout Salad today - it was delicious and beautiful to look at as well. Daniel had the Calamari & Chips- it was a huge portion and the batter was light & fluffy-he says it tasted brilliant! Mike had the Chicken Wrap which he also said was excellent. Will definitely still stay at the top of our list for Knysna restaurants.

Awesome lunch with great seafood overlooking the heads. Loving the craft beer and ginger beer. Gotta love the blankies to keep you warm during the winter.

The BEST fish & chips in South Africa - super fresh (and awesome tartare sauce too). Whilst driving to George airport from Plett, we had a quick stop over for a take away (brilliant service too). Highly recommended & will definitely visit and enjoy a meal next time. Stunning views of the ocean. Philip & Marcél de Villiers (SA)

Wonderful setting, well run and really good food. The staff are clearly extremely well trained, dedicated, attentive and appear to enjoy their jobs. Seldom does one see staff take such pride in what they do. The food is consistently well prepared and presented. The outdoor area under trees and canopy is delightful with an enviable waterside position while inside is bright and cheerful. This restaurant deserves its popularity.
