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).

Very well made and very fresh food

Baked line fish (with the sauce on the side) was eceptional! Extremely well cooked fish with a delicious sauce. Veggies also very well cooked. Fresh and light. Service was excellent. highly recommended restaurant.

The food was outstanding, easily the best sea food I have ever had. But it wouldn't have been as outstanding without the service I received. Not only did my waiter named sascha recommend the best foods I've ever tasted, he went above and beyond to make the rest of my holiday better by suggesting other restaurants, places to stay and...

Came every day of our break in Knysna (just before oyster festival) Kids loved the Sushi. I think the best time to visit here is lunch/early afternoon. We really enjoyed good service and food at this time.

We ate here during the recent Oyster Festival. The Oysters were delicious! I tried the Large, Medium and Cocktail Oysters and they were all delicious. My husband had sushi which he was very happy with. The waitress was efficient and helpful. We will definitely eat here again when next in Knysna.

A bustling casual restaurant on the canal. We sampled amazing wild oysters but all the food we saw on other tables looked delicious. Looking forward to a return visit!

The free breakfast from the hotel was arranged here. We were not staying on otherwise would have had more meals here. The menu had something for everyone including vegetarians. The prepararions are well prepared and tasty.

SERVICE - It's the Knysna Oyster festival and so it's pumping here. I've seen people complaining about bad service but we had perfect service - fast, friendly and very helpful. 5/5 AMBIANCE - Great spot sitting next to the edge of the canal 5/5 VALUE - It's Kynsna and so it's not cheap but it was not bad 4/5 ORDER...
