This was our first restaurant to have dinner in Knysna. Staff and the owner are really kind and food is definitely good. They have an excellent Shiraz!

This restaurant isn't rocking Trip Advisor by accident. The food is amazing. Ellen is brilliant. Just do it.

Excellent staff and great meat. The bubuti spring rolls had a bit too much oil for me but they were delicious. The meat was outstanding, specially with the tomato and anchovies sauce.
The way they show and explain the menu is nice, entertaining and very accurate butbit may take some time so if youbgo there just enjoy your time while waiting and relax...

The manager at the Loft Hotel recommended for us to eat here one night. I thanked her for this awesome recommendation the very next day.

My kids had their most favorite meal in South Africa here, and it was my close second. We had many fine meals in South Africa.

This restaurant was managed by a lovely woman, who would not let us order more than 2 starters, because she was worried that we might be too full to enjoy her wonderful main courses. We negotiated with her to let us order the soup plus the 2 starters.

We had the most delicious steaks here. And my kids know their steaks. The kids loved the butter sauce, and loved that the manager cut their steaks for them. A service I used to provide, but have long stopped.

We loved everything here. Including the vegetable side dish that came with the meal. Everything was carefully prepared, beautifully presented, and simply delicious.

We had a most memorable, and one of the best meals in South Africa here.

I highly recommend this restaurant for those visiting Knysna.
