“Best Burger Deal in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2011

Surprisingly, the burger isn't even on the menu but i knew about it since the waitress had told me about it on a previous occasion. I guess that it's because it's served on the bar menu next door, at King's Sports Bat (same owner). Highly recommend that you ask for it - the beef version. I'm local so i've now had it several times and, on this occasion, had a colleague with me to agree.

It tastes good, the chips are awesome and the salad crunchy. And at only R35, it's one of the best deals you can get in Knysna. I weigh 90kg and i was full!

Very important to add some of the house chilli sauce which is in a beer bottle on the table. Hot but very tasty (ask for a lemon wedge and your burger will be perfect).

Note that out of season, they're only open on nights and weekends. For better ambience, i suggest evening. 7-8pm would be best.

PS: Best part of the night was probably our waitress, Felicity. Very friendly, good sense of humour.
