Description: Not exactly a restaurant... Not exactly a bar... Definitely not a deli... Well, not exactly a deli... It's an eating place, a drinking place and definitely a meeting place. And it's a gift shop, a clothing emporium, a food store, a fish monger and a bakery, too. And the finest wine shop this side of the grape curtain. And it's always on one, single line of latitude - the 34th parallel (but only on the Waterfront at the Knysna Quays).

Poor service, poor food, poor atmosphere... We used to go to 34 South quite often, especially for their awesome pizza special on Wednesdays. Decided to go for the pizza special this week after having not gone for a while and was surprisingly disappointed. We went for our usual table, to find it not set up yet. A waitress came over...

I have been going here for years and this place never dissappoints. We have a beach house near Knysna and we always meet up with friends here. It has great food, a good variety of good wines and the vibe is the best in all of Knysna. I only have good memories here and hope to make many more when... More

We went there on the last day of the Knysna Festival, and my friends wanted their last share of oysters before returning home. Between our table we had oysters (I had the blue cheese ones, which were delicious but some were terribly small, and only made me hungry for more), pizzas and a kingklip espetada. Everyone said the pizzas were... More

We have been to 34 Degrees South a number of times and have never been disappointed. We went during the Oyster Festival in July and eventually ended up at our favorite place having lunch. Apart from the inconsiderate group with about 10 children who thought they had to upset all the other patrons by being loud and boisterous and encouraging... More

:-) We had an enjoyable meal with friendly efficient service and a pleasant atmosphere. Food is a bit on the expensive side but very tasty and good value if you're not a budget traveller. They have a great kids menu and the sushi was really good too! :-| Restaurant feels a little grubby... could do with a good scrub.. but... More

A party of 5 went to 34 South In Knysna, South Africa this summer (their winter). The service was GREAT!!! The waiter, Sash, was friendly, pleasant, helpful, and professional. They were busy, but we never felt neglected or rushed. He also gave us hints on other great places for the rest of our trip.

We visited 34 South as a family with teenagers. We had a great meal consisting of calamari, oysters, fresh line fish and paela. All the food was very good and the atmosphere special.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our time at 34 South but the food was nothing to rave about. Our sushi seemed like it had been rushed and was falling apart. The grilled calamari was a sizeable portion and enjoyable. We had friendly service however it wasn't always efficient.

A favourite spot for sushi in Knysna. Great atmosphere and vibe. Great food! Doesn't feel as clean as I'd like it. Menus and table cloths are grubby. Might be time for a few interior improvements.
