“Really enjoyable experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Wow, what a great location! Even managed to get the best table outside in the corner with an amazing view of the heads. Blankets are even available if you get cold. Great food, great service, great spot. Walk down to the heads when you are done. Awesome opportunity for photos. Don't sit inside, try sit outside to hear the waves crashing against the rocks and see the whole view.

“A Must.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We were recommended to eat here by Knysna Tourist board as 'the best seafood available'.......and they weren't wrong. We arrived at 12, and still had to wait a short while...this goes to show how popular this place is. It was, however, well worth it, the views across the heads are amazing, as is the food......we went with the waiters recommendations, and had the seafood combo. The calamari is probably the best I've ever sampled, and the Hake was sublime.
Worth a trip out!!
