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).

The restaurant was recommended by the staff at our hotel and we were not disappointed. Good food, excellent service. Enjoyed our experience with friends and family. Worth a visit.

We came here for dinner as a family of 4. We had a great combination of local seafood and international comfort food. It tasted great, and was served promptly. Although son was an 'Oyster virgin', Dad praised the 34 South wild Oysters as the best he'd ever had! The waiter, Riccando, was kind and helpful and made sure to comply... More

we had 2 family evening meals here, having enjoyed the first night so much and went back. The staff were fun and the atmosphere was great. It was busy even out of season. Large portions of good quality food at a reasonable price.

Fresh oysters, good wine and fresh linefish together with excellent service make for a great lunch. I can really recommend this restaurant. The sweets were the only disappointing part and are best avoided, but the rest makes up for it.

34 now caters for the Tim Noakes followers and has a small Real Meal menu that caters for breakfast, lunch and supper. This was a surprise to see and they have really catered for all tastes. I have also noticed that they have various specials on for each day only costing R34! Their sweetpotato dishes are still my favourite!

We went to 34 South for their amazing R34-00 lunch special, Thai green curry, including a glass of wine. We weren't expecting much for the price, but the food was delicious, good portions and the atmosphere was upbeat and festive. The menu seems extensive, and well priced (except for the fillet steak at R150-00). The service was a little slow,... More

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...
