Description: Not exactly a restaurant... Not exactly a bar... Definitely not a deli... Well, not exactly a deli... It's an eating place, a drinking place and definitely a meeting place. And it's a gift shop, a clothing emporium, a food store, a fish monger and a bakery, too. And the finest wine shop this side of the grape curtain. And it's always on one, single line of latitude - the 34th parallel (but only on the Waterfront at the Knysna Quays).

“Large seafood restaurant with great location and atmosphere”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Located on the waterfront this large sea food restaurant is ideally situated within this upmarket and very American town. The place was busy and quite noisy but had a brilliant friendly atmosphere. ideal for a group, less suitable for a quiet romantic meal. The menu was good and obviously sea food was the main attraction and it was superb and decent value considering the location and he friendly service added to the experience. A great night out.

“Great food. Great service. Superb value!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

A must visit if you are in Kysna. The Prawn and Calamari combo will not be beaten. Ambience is fantastic to, outdoor sitting as well as indoor but it wont make a difference as both, whilst different, are full of character and atmosphere and seem to roll into one.

Lastly, but not least, the service was impeccable, fun and informative. Our waiter Sacha was like a food & wine connoisseur, tourist guide, and entertainer all in one. But not over the top, knew when we needed help or more importantly, when to be left alone. Well done mate.

Richard, Joanne & Lucy.... well fed foodies!

“Knysna's Best Restaurant!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

"it's not a deli...not a restaurant.... Certainly a meeting place". The service is excellent, and the seafood paella is out of this world... Got to eat there when you are in Knysna! Highly recommended...

“great experience”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

went there for sushi, on the recommendation of a friend who said it was the best in town. the food was good, but our waiter, Sasha, was what made the evening something to remember. he was very friendly with lots of great conversation. the meal was great, service was prompt. overall, it was a lovely evening. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. and I would definitely go there regularly.
