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).

“A Notch Above”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

A party of 5 went to 34 South In Knysna, South Africa this summer (their winter). The service was GREAT!!! The waiter, Sash, was friendly, pleasant, helpful, and professional. They were busy, but we never felt neglected or rushed. He also gave us hints on other great places for the rest of our trip.

“Excellent seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We visited 34 South as a family with teenagers. We had a great meal consisting of calamari, oysters, fresh line fish and paela. All the food was very good and the atmosphere special.

“Average night out... ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our time at 34 South but the food was nothing to rave about. Our sushi seemed like it had been rushed and was falling apart. The grilled calamari was a sizeable portion and enjoyable. We had friendly service however it wasn't always efficient.

“Excellent sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

A favourite spot for sushi in Knysna. Great atmosphere and vibe. Great food!

Doesn't feel as clean as I'd like it. Menus and table cloths are grubby. Might be time for a few interior improvements.
