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).

“Fantastic bustling seafood restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Visited as a family in December. Fantastic bustling seafood restaurant. Freshest fish from the bay, massive platters of fish, Sushi bar...all brilliant. Friendly attentive service, not fine dining very laid back bustling place, lots of atmosphere.

They also have a shop/deli where you can buy a variety of goods.

Strongly recommended.

“Wonderful oysters, great beer, friendly service”

Located on the bay in Knysna, 34 South serves delicious fresh oysters, wild and farm raised, and excellent beers from local breweries. Sit outside and enjoy the view!

“Nice afternoon lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Had fresh oysters to start, with nice wine offered by the glass. Mains, both calamari, were cooked well served with roasted vegetables and fresh salad. Service was great and attentive. The restaurant itself could do with a little updating in terms of tatty menus and "tablecloths".
