Visited Knysna during June 2014 was looking for a nice place to have brunch we saw this new Restaurant and tried it out. What a surprise the cleanness of the restaurant, the hospitality of the owner and the waiters. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding for the price. Will definitely go and visit again. Keep it up... More

Not good. I have eaten at O pescador twice with very unsatisfying results. The food is very unimaginitive. I had Beef trinchado which was just peices of beef in a watery oil. My partner had rubbery prawns. It was not a fluke either as both times the food was substandard.

O'Pescador was average, nothing special. I had a steak which was ok but not as expected. The chicken was not good. They tried to fix the issue but it was the taste nothing else. The desert was good. They had an offer which was you pay for one meal and the other was free. Staff was good and they have... More

We have eaten more than once at O'Pescador. The food and service have been excellent - beautifully rich sauces on the Chorico starter and the Prawns Nacionale. Well situated on the Waterfront, attentive waiters, fairly priced - especially on their June two for one offers! We did have the angry chef show, as mentioned by another reviewer - copying Gordon...

I agree with Juro82. We had lunch there today. The food was very good,the waiter extremely friendly and helpful,but the chef threw a very rude tatrum for everybody to hear. Very unprofesional.

Was looking for good Portuguese food, and found it, the food was amazing, the restaurant was good and Lodete is an excellent host. Loved the Portuguese beer called Super Bock stout, will go back just for the beer more often. We had the garlic roll (nice and moist) chicken giblets and Portuguese baby chicken peri piri (wonderful spicy taste)

As a client you shouldn't have to listen to the Main chef or Owner shouting at his staff members in the kitchen all sorts of obscene wording and doing his disciplinary procedure( what procedure) to the loud shouting so that patrons have to listen to whether they wanted it or not. I believe that this person needs to be trained... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant on a chilly winter night and it looked cozy. Our waiter, Malcolm, was wonderful and all the waiters that served us were friendly and helpful. The chef could be heard shouting in the kitchen which wasn't very nice to hear since we thought the rest of the staff were great. The Espetada was absolutely delicious... More

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant. Prices are slightly above average but definitely worth it. The waiter was extremely friendly and was able to explain each dish in great detail. We had the cape salmon which was delicious. Nice setting for an evening meal.
