Excellent meal in a perfectly peaceful setting. This surely is Knysna's best kept secret having such a gem tucked away under the trees and the river close at hand begging for a picnic which the staff are happy to arrange under the trees. Canoeing is also possible and of course the Mashie Golf Course for the golfers of the family. It really has something for everyone.

PLEASE, everyone must make a point of visiting this lovely place. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting, so peaceful and the ambience is wonderful. Lovely owners, staff very attentive and friendly and food is very good. This is a new establishment so it needs to do quite a bit of marketing to make it successful. But everything is in place for it to make its mark.

Wasn't sure whether it was open, when we arrived, but we were soon taken care of. We understand it's quite new. The food was nicely cooked and tasty. - better than we expected. Their marketing department needs to get to work, because you wouldn't easily know this little gem is here.
