Reviewed 4 December 2013

Fabulous place there is a really nice resturant serving breakfast and lunches we ate there twice first class both times. The views there are splendid just watching the wave crash on the rocks was invigorating.

“A fabulous way to see Knysna”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

This is a very simple way to get a good view of Knysna and the heads to the bay and lagoon. Best to go at the end of the day and enjoy the sunset. The various viewing platforms provide views looking back towards Knysna, towards the heads, and views out to sea. You can also check out the ridiculously enormous houses built by Knysna's rich right up to the cliff/sea edge - so much for town planning!

“Magnificent views of the Heads”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

I understand that 'Sensa', the new name of The Heads restaurant, has had a number of owners, however one thing has not changed and that is the quality of the food and drink and the sensational views. This restaurant has had the same Chef for a number of years and he didn't disappoint. The Steak was to die for as was the Calamari, both of which were like butter; they just melted in your mouth. The restaurant is on three levels, and is very deceptive from the outside, a bit like a Tardis. Level one was the bar and bar snacks area, then you walked down a couple of steps to the second level, which was enormous, and then through to the fine dining area at the end which at night was sensational as all The Heads were lit up, which gave you an unenviable view. They also do a great selection of cocktails.

“Knysna Heads”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

The Knysna Heads are exciting, awesome and the view is out of this world, after looking at the view from the upper level which is amazing, you can go to the lower one and have a drink and just soak in the scenery.
