Description: Not exactly a restaurant... Not exactly a bar... Definitely not a deli... Well, not exactly a deli... It's an eating place, a drinking place and definitely a meeting place. And it's a gift shop, a clothing emporium, a food store, a fish monger and a bakery, too. And the finest wine shop this side of the grape curtain. And it's always on one, single line of latitude - the 34th parallel (but only on the Waterfront at the Knysna Quays).

“Service is SHOCKING!!!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

We ordered the seafood pasta, we also had the hake and chips, seafood bisque and 2 mezze platters. FOOD IS AMAZING!!!! THE SERVICE HOWEVER WAS TERRIBLE! The waiter with her red hair had no smile, she became agitated didn't even lift her feet!!she made no attempt at anything and no manners whatsoever! it was disgusting. the only reason i would go back is for the food however that waiter needs to be let go.

“Always Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

One of my favourite Restaurant experiences in Knysna. Not only is the food always of a high standard but you would be challenged to find a restaurant that offers a better atmosphere anywhere in the Garden Route. 34 South is an Icon of Knysna an no trip would be complete without experiencing the rare ambiance it has to offer. It has arguably has the finest and greatest selection of food available in the region. What's more it has a great Deli and souvenir section should you which to share the experience with those not fortunate enough to have accompanied you. I would highly recommend the venue .
