“Wonderful location, great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We went to Tottie's farm Kitchen last weekend and just had to go back today...a week later. Lovely location about 12km's from the N2.
Service is normally a bit on the slow side, but it is really worth the wait!
The food is definitely prepared with good quality ingredients, tasty and beautifully decorated.
There is an outside play area for the kids as well as live music.
It was nice that the owner where around and introduced herself.

“Totties - not on a Monday”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Drove all the way out to Totties Farm kitchen today, just to find it closed. I specifically checked their website before leaving, to make sure they are not closed on Mondays. I checked the website again once we returned home, and cannot find anywhere it states "Closed on Mondays". Seeing that this restaurant is in the sticks, it will be nice to know not to make the drive there when they're closed for business. We ended up with snacks from the store. The store clerk was not very helpful, and could not operate the bank machine, she had to call the petrol attendant to swipe my card. Very disappointing, won't make the effort again.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Amazing food, friendly service. Great jungle gym for the children. Salad garnish beautifully presented and so fresh - we wondered if they picked the leaves to serve! Tomato relish very tasty and we also thought the jam was home made as it was also so good. Food beautifully presented. No food envy as every one got such lovely meals - both mornings we went!

“HOME COOKED HEAVEN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

We visit Totties regularly when we are in South Africa,often after canoeing when we are very hungry and want to chill,Totties meets both needs perfectly.

Excellent quirky menus,highlights for us are omelettes, but friends have rated pies and bobotie,very highly,there are also,breakfasts,curries,salads,and desserts

Service is always friendly,time has to be allowed for preparation but it is worth the the wait,just enjoy the surroundings

“hard Work and good home cooked food = a winning combination”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Tottie's is on the Rheenendal Road which is about twenty five minute drive from the centre of Knysna.. It is an area off farm land and local produce is sold from the many outlets which are now being enterprising.

It is over a year since we visited Tottie,s for their famous Sunday Buffet . The starters were varied and my favourite of pickled fish was on the menu today . The mains were the usual fish , beautiful roast beef and a lamb curry all served on warm plates.
The sweets were few in number but all excellent. The sweets are not out on show but are ordered through the waitress.
Sunday on the deck with live music , attentive staff and lovely weather is a must visit for all locals and visitors.
The garden at Tottie's is a must see. Marion and her husband are on hand to make your journey to their resturaunt an enjoyable experience
