I had the pleasure of after work drinks at "the project" at Sirocco. Which is on the first floor. The view is one of the most beautiful in Knysna. The decor is tasteful. The menu tempting ( it is expensive, but not overpriced). Trendy and fun. I love Sirocco. On previous occasions when I ordered food I was really impressed.

Popped past during the oyster festival for a quick lunch with friends, service was great and the food was excellent. Try the oysters, the salsa that comes with them transforms them into something quite special! The calamari and mussel combo also looked incredible.

Nice place. Service was a little slow but once they got going it was good. My steak was good. The Kabeljou was ok. Generally a very nice evening. Thanks.

We were greeted by extremely friendly staff, who very quickly organised a table for us in a busy restaurant!
