East heads cafe is always a must for me whenever we are in SA.
I love it there the food, the location the owner,Jerome a gentlemen and very helpful.

Value for money is excellent.
Staff friendly and helpful. Love it.

“Great views and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Great place with the best views of Knysna Heads. Remember - no dinner! Very popular with locals so you might think about making a reservation for lunch during busy holiday time. Though we waited and they were quick in finding us sth outside. Great for lunch or a quick bite in the afternoon. Very child friendly.

“Best Food in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

We were only in Knysna for 4 days but we had to come to East Head Cafe again! Their food is incredibly delicious and you can't go wrong with whatever you order. Their Seafood was impressive as well as their salads. The only con is the parking, this place is so popular that you battle to find parking near by! You can't book so make sure you go before peak meal time so you ensure yourself a table! Well everyone scrambles to sit outside, we actually found it much more pleasant inside by the window as the you sat viewing the Knysna heads and sitting outside did not guarantee a view.

“OUTSTANDING service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

These guys are doing everything right! Hostess greeted us @ the door with our names before we even had a chance to open our mouths. Our waiter seemed to second-guess our requirements - if I so much as looked over my shoulder he was on his way with what I needed. The food was 10 out of 10. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. I couldn't fault it.
