Description: Type of Cuisine - South African Part of Kilzers Kitchen Cookery School - this restaurant operates on Wednesday evenings only for the public. The format is basically as follows : Our guests 19:00 in the evening - bringing along their own wife and their own wine ....no corkage charges at all ( for the wife or the wine ). These dinners are hosted weekly ( Wednesdays) from the beginning of November - end of April annually. Upon arrival guests are welcomed by our waiters ( as we are frantically busy in the kitchen )--- and given appetizers to nibble on, as well as a "welcome drink" - at present our flavour of the Month - a home made Limoncello - to warm them up on a cold Winter's evening, or cool them down on a hot summer's evening. At approximately 7:30 for 7:45 we welcome all our guests to the open-plan kitchen, where we give them a complete run-down re: the dinner for the evening. Starters & main courses are prepared in full view of the guests as they congregate around the kitchen area, along with our famous joke telling - a bit of "Kitchen Theatre". After this guests return to their individual tables, ( laid up as per customer reservation ), and the meal commences with a starter, followed by main course ,dessert, coffee/ tea and biscuits to end the meal. Everything edible is prepared in our kitchen - including the apperitif, as already mentioned. All in all, it is an evening celebrating food, more food, fun, and of course, the guest's own choice of wines - which are sometimes dodgy, other times magnificent - all depending on individual taste. The atmosphere is a party atmosphere, and the noise level is generally high and festive.........Enjoyment of the evening is up to you. We would love to welcome you and look forward to a visit from you and whoever you wish to bring along.............wife, lover, mother- in- law............. We cater for any special requests, e.g vegetarians, gluten intolerant or any other food allergies. Please advise beforehand.

“A unique experience”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

All dishes were delicious. The service very satisfying indeed. The hostage were extremely funny with quite a lot of good jokes. A good mixture of unique recipies, dishes with enough food to make you full and a scenery where you experience the preparation of the meals.

Remember to bring your own wine :-)

“A Knysna Must-Experience”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Any visit to Knysna would be incomplete without an evening at KKB's Wednesday nights Cook and Look experience. Sassy. Entertaining. Memorable.

“Great Food”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Visited KKB's Cook and Look last Wednesday. The sole starter was great, the baaf main course was juicy and tender, the spinach a treat and the dessert (chocolate pod with homemeade ice cream) amazing. Don't ever visit Knysna without spending your Wednesday evenings there!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

The Cook & Look at Kilzers Kitchen is an evening that can't be missed. 10/10 for the 3 course dinner, served up with a touch of humour.

“ALWAYS a fabulous experience”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Wednesday Cook & Look has become a fixture in our annual Knysna visit and yet again we had the most wonderful evening. The food was amazing, my husband says it was the best Kingklip he'd ever tasted. The atmosphere is always friendly and warm and somehow we always end up making new friends. Jenny lived up to expectation with her repartee and all in all it was a great evening. Would thoroughly recommend it!
