We travel about 150km to have sushi here. It is so fresh and beautifully served on platters. The view on the Knysna lake is incredible.

Ate there for lunch with friends and everyone loved their meal. Our guests enjoyed the sushi and the grilled calamari. We enjoyed the chicken Caesar and the carpaccio. The macadamia nut brownie is enough for two and delicious.

High Class restaurant with a touch of Yacht Club Snob Appeal. The menu offers a fine variation of fresh fish, yet the kick doesn‘t come.
