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).

This place had been recommended in the guide books, service was friendly but very slow. Food was mediocre and overpriced for what it was

Arrived at 34 today to have a lunch with a friend, Firstly I sat down and waited 15 minutes for a waiter to offer me a menu (the restaurant was not full). Thereafter I ordered what seemed to be a nice pizza (due to the fact that everything else was ridiculously priced) it was the worst pizza I have ever... More

This is a fun place with a very diverse menu. The food is good. We could order anything on the menu inside and we enjoyed our meals. It is busy so a reservation is recommended.

Visited 34 for a late lunch end of November. The Calamari starter was undercooked, very pink inside and covered with a "orange" seasoning perhaps "aromat" I had the East Coast Soles, presentation was non existent two pieces piled on top of each other and they were raw. As I took the meat from the bone the bones were still covered... More

I tried to reserve a table for 4 in the afternoon for the next day and was told I could not reserve. I returned the following afternoon to double check and was told again that a reservation was not possible and we would either get a table on arrival or within 20 minutes. When we arrived we were asked if... More

Last visited 34 degrees some years ago and noted some changes, I presume it has changed hands in the interim. A large area of the inside area is now devoted to a Sushi roundabout system. We were a party of 5 and sat outside. Service was excellent and drinks arrived promptly. As before, an excellent imaginative menu. All diners fulsome... More

The breakfasts are really good value at the moment with good coffee included but the staff all seem to have their own interests at heart as opposed to the customers. This is an ongoing problem at 34 even when iit is relatively quiet. They hang around chatting and iit is difficult to catch their eye.
