On Wednesday we popped in to Sirocco for lunch as my spouse felt like some sparkling wine and oysters, after looking through the menu we decided on the medium sized cultivated oyster as they did not have any of the natural coastal oysters in stock and the cocktail oysters as we all know are tiny. Well we were extremely disappointed... More

We had dinner at Sirocco because of a local woman who recommended us the place. Besides the very delicious food we also had the pleasure to be served by Honey. Her humorous way with her great smile was an enrichment to the very attentive and welcoming staff in general. Our meals were cooked excellently and we enjoyed the entire evening.... More

Great food with excellent service and friendly manager. We had the seafood platter which was excellent and great value. We went their twice during our stay in knysna and both times were excellent. Sunday is half price sushi and amazing platters. Great views over the lagoon. If you get the chance head to thesan Island you will not be disappointed.

Sirocco is a busy place with a very nice atmosphere. Plenty of different kind of food to choser from - seafood and meat with a creative approach, and otherwise also pizza, pasta and sushi. Very good prices too!

We were encouraged to try this place based on fellow trip advisor reviews and clearly one persons tonic is another's poison! This was for us the worse meal we had during our week stay in Kynsna. Firstly, we were impressed by the offer of a pick up and drop off service from our guest house and this is indeed a... More

As a SAFFA I was very, very impressed with this gem of a restaurant. We stayed at one of the highest B&B's (Head of a Hills) on the heads. Our hostess booked us a table at Sirocco on a Sunday evening, the restaurant provide a shuttle service to and from your B&B. I was amazed that the shuttle stopped at... More

We came here for an anniversary dinner. We brought our own special bottle of wine which they waved the corkage fee. Also we got the best table in the house with a view overlooking the lagoon and the moored yachts. The food was superb with fresh seafood prepared to perfection. The atmosphere was entertaining and relaxed. The manager and serving... More

We only drove through Knysna and got completely lost looking for the Heads, until we ended up at Sirocco. We had a nice lunch in the sun (amazing chichen & avo baguette) and the manager offered to take our picture. Good memories!
