This restaurant is phenomenal. The menu has so many options that it makes it super difficult to decide on what to order. The staff is lovely and offer great service. I had a High Fat Low Carb breakfast and it was scrumptious.

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).
