This is a very nice place nestled at the Knysna marina. The seafood is excellent although - IMHO - a bit overpriced. Sometimes its difficult to get a table on the terrace, reservations for lunch or dinner is recommended.

The oysters were so so fresh and absolutely delicious! South African oysters aren’t particularly big, so I would order size large and above. Very reasonably priced and wish I could’ve returned for more!

Thanks so much for the review. We generally have different sizes on offer (however it is dependant on what we receive from our farm on the given day). Hopefully you will visit us again on your next trip. Kind Regards Gavin

What a fabulous spot in the food market. Great oysters, oyster shots, and divine wine from De Grendel. Amazing service with beautiful smiles - little gem!

Thanks so much for the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed yourself. We thought long and hard before committing to what wine we would sell at our bar. We have had such incredible feedback on the DeGrendel wine. If you have a chance you need to go to the farm for a wine tasting, lunch or dinner. The setting, wine and food are incredible.

Worth popping in here before the Foodmarket closes at 8 pm for a pre-dinner drink as you can sit at the bar and people watch.
