Good quality food. Oysters were fantastic. Had line fish and husband had seafood pizza. Line fish was superb but pizza a bit of a let down. Will be back!

Had some of the best oysters of my life here - so many that the waiter looked both impressed and fearful by the end. 34 South offers both cultivated and fresh oyster options, which were truly delicious. The rest of our party enjoyed the various seafood dishes, particularly the seafood soup. It's not a particularly scenic location but it is... More

Lovely family restaurant with lively atmosphere. Better to book but we were lucky and they managed to accommodate us as we were only two people. Food was excellent and the service good. Would definitely go back and take people with us . Prices not unreasonable. Prawns were a good size and cooked perfectly.

Lone fish as excellent and a decent wine list. Ambiance is 3 star...noisy but not offensive. Good service though and friendly staff.

Went with friends for fish and chips at 34 Degrees South and what a place this is amazing. So much going on with the shop and the restaurant operating together and handling so many customers at the same time, but if you want fish and chips cooked to perfection this is the place Had oysters for a starter then fish...

If you want to eat oysters then this is the place to go. Very busy spot with lots of tourists around. Oysters were delicious but not cheap. Worth it tho !

Large bar and deck restaurant staffed by helpful , cheerful staff. In a beautiful location on the waterfront. Specialising in all forms of sea food prepared from the freshest raw material. Very popular with the locals and seemingly busy all year which are good signs.

Really average but still nice location and staff and value for money. The sushi is good. I enjoyed the view we had outside.

This is a really well-known restaurant in Knysna. It's busy and you feel it. The food was ok but unspectacular and the staff match the food. Warm white wine didn't help. Frankly there are better places to eat in Knysna

Thank Mark I

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).
