We had late dinner at Siroccos and it was great. We've been told that their seafood was good and since I'm a seafood lover we took the advice and went there and we don't regret it. I had the seafood platter and it was great. I've visited many restaurants all over the world and the fish on the platter was... More

Excellent position and excellent service, food and wine. Not overpriced either. Well worth a visit for either steaks or fish.

Best food we had in Knysna. Amazing location and views. The service was very good too. You have to try the natural oysters when you go there.

Very noisy establishment, you would think you are sitting in an elderly cafeteria with nothing but deaf people shouting at each other. The food is ok, pricing ok and a good selection of wines. Not really my favorite...

We had different courses. I ate very nice sushi. Some had gratinated oyster, some had oyster nautral - and we all enjoyed the food and time there. Had the pleasure to hear the two-men band, and some guests danced as well. A cosy place outside in the backyard. Will recommend this on to all.

Sunday night half price sushi rocks. Great fresh fish, albeit a bit too much rice, good wine list and great waitstaff make for a nice evening. View over the water is nice but any table is good for people watching. Parking is easy however make reservations or get there before 6.

The Project upstairs has to be a fantastic place for cocktails at sundown with spectacular views over the lagoon. Comfortable sitting area & a good selection of them all! Seems that the food can be a bit hit & miss but it always is crowded, so cant be bad.

Thank john e
