We live in Jeffreys Bay, but often visit Knysna. This is definitely the best dinner spot in town. Always have had good food and service. We have directed many of our visitors from overseas there when they visit. Never have heard a complaint. Enjoy

This is a popular mainly fish restaurant. Our food was perfectly edible but there was nothing outstanding. The service was friendly and well placed. Prices were moderate. We would not rush back.

A bit more expensive than we were used to in SA, but it was worth it - amazing fish dishes and a good place to try oysters. Everything is fresh and you can taste it!

Out of all the restaurants in Knysna this is one of my favourites - been on and off over 15 years and not much changes - why should it - excellent food in convivial surroundings is all one needs.
