Great Winter Sundays in Knysna!

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.

Been here a few times and was there this weekend again. This is a great place with good food in a great location. Can never go wrong when going here. And I love their Nacho Pizza, it is incredible!!

Arrived without a booking during the Oyster Festival - luckily the staff were able to wrangle a table for us, as they were packed. Sampled their oysters - served with a delightful chutney - and enjoyed a light meal of nachos and homemade minestrone. The menu was reasonably priced, and the food was homey and flavorsome. Great experience!

Great venue for weddings. Food was really good, was able to taste a little of everything and cannot really fault any of the dishes. Great setting and location with amazing views. Would definitely come back.

We had awesome sushi and cocktails! Our daughter had the kiddies fish fingers and it was also good (not the store bought flat ones!) Friendly staff. Lovely atmosphere and view.

What a venue, a pity that it is so disappointing when it comes to food quality and poorly trained and indifferent staff. We always enjoyed being at this restuarant but it seems something has happened to the management. The last visit will be our last. There is much better service and food elswhere in the area. A pity as the... More

plenty of Atmosphere, plenty of choice on the menu and a adequate helping of food. The Staff were friendly and helpful and no hurry up feeling to clear the table.

Our table was situated below a wooden deck that was the dance floor for the party upstairs. Besides the noise, drinks that were spilled upstairs showered diners below. We waited more than an hour for starters, and when they arrived, they missed one order. When this eventually arrived, it was the incorrect order. We were advised that Kingklip was the... More
