Excellent location, good food

On a cool winter's day we sat outside as the location is exceptional and the view over the lagoon towards the Knysna Heads is outstanding. The staff were all very friendly and the blankets on offer were appreciated by my wife. We had the lamb shank & a pizza, both of which were very good. As it... read more

the upstairs restaurant has stunning 360 degree views and is perfect for a small wedding. The food, service and attention to detail was exceptional. Well done Andrew, Carl and all the team.

Sirocco Restaurant is situated on Thesen Island, a very upmarket area in the beautiful coastal town of Knysna. Thesen Island consists of a private residential estate, a boutique hotel or two, a few quite unique shops, a spa, a well-known furniture shop, offices, the Parks Board ... and restaurants. There is ample parking in front of the restaurant as well... More

We arrived to a fully booked restaurant without a booking and a space was made for us. We shared a sunset Pizza which was delicious and then some oysters. Bit of a wait inbetween courses only because they were extremely busy. Food itself came relatively quickly. Lovely Vibe aswell

We had sushi and mussels. Sushi was probably one of the worst we had. I understand that they offer they easy to many style sushi ( many cooked elements, mayo, sweet chili etc) but you can do that with some quality...here the rice in roles was actually muddy, any tempura prawns were lost in thick batter:( As for the mussels...

Incredible location and such a lovely place right on the water. We sat outside right by the water and were provided with blankets for when it got a bit chilly! Beautiful place and the food doesn't disappoint, would definitely recommend the mussels and the huge brownie!!

I have so enjoyed sitting outside in the warm winter sun, listening to some great music and having half-price sushi on a Sunday. Lots of fun!

Very disappointed considering how highly rated this place is. Honestly I cannot complain about the service as they were very accommodating, friendly and on the ball. However for the price you pay for what you would hope is great food was very disappointing. Sorry but no good vote from me.

We picked this restaurant as it was the least full of the restaurants situated around the kids play park on Thesen Island. This was during the recent Oyster Festival. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, and the service fast. The views over the lagoon are also great. Will definitely go back.
