We Brits are spoilt rotten due to a very generous exchange rate but Sirroco was fantastic value.We were collected and returned to our B&B by taxi so I assumed that business was a bit thin.On the contrary the restaurant was full except for one table with the best view over the waterfront - ours.The mussels in a white wine and...

Wasn't very impressed with this place. The menu is like a short novel; I suppose it's a great place for kids, as they have every kind of food imaginable. This generally means that none of it is outstanding and our meals certainly weren't. We sat inside and people were smoking just beyond our table, in apparently the 'outdoors'. So if... More

This restaurant is in a beautiful spot, with gorgeous views of the lagoon. The service was really good, friendly and accommodating (we asked for a lagoon view and were moved without too much hassle). The food was OK, nothing special but nothing wrong with it either. I would recommend the cashew/chocolate brownies - absolute heaven!

Quite disappointed considering how highly rated this place is. Being recommended by our guesthouse and the reviews our expectations were (too) high. 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. My Crayfish wasn't super... More

I think if we were able to sit outside we would have had a much better experience but it was a chilly night and we were taken straight inside. At first we were sat in the middle of the restaurant with no view of the water, despite asking on reservation to have a waterside view. Before ordering our wine, a... More

There were four of us dining and our food was fantastic, all cooked perfectly, steaks done exactly to our requirements. We couldn't fault our food and the service we received was impeccable, friendly and very slick. we took our coffee on the roof top terrace, a wonderful spot to sit and see the lights of Knysna and again the staff...

We live in Knysna and in the last 4 months have experienced a steady decline in service at Sirocco. Servers are no longer personable. Management staff appears very unhappy and stressed. Food is ok and sometimes good but with below average service even the great views cannot improve the experience.

We found this place for an early dinner after visiting the area for a day. We had good food, although the fish was better than the meat (which tasted rather salty). We had a good table with a fine view over the outlet to the sea. The service was good and at attractive prices.
