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).

As we were traveling the towns in southern South Africa, we were asking for random people for restaurants recommendations. This one we was highly recommended by an employee at the world's highest Bunjee jump near Tsitsikamma.
We arrived to the restaurant that night and were not disappointed. Amazing food and great service in a reasonable price. Every dish was a success.

We went here because we got a rood recommendation from the guest house owner. We had a great mail with three starters and the catch of the day as main course. Perfectly baked fish that was good even without any sauce. The waiter, Sydney, was very nice also. We can advice anyone to grab a bite here, trie the Leopard wine: cheap and pretty good.

Very good service from Sydney our waiter. Overall it was average food experience.

The oysters made up for the other dishes. Both the raw oysters and the tempura oysters were fabulous.

What I would recommend you try is the kingklip espatada and the milk tart for dessert.

We recently visited Knysna and had dinner at 34 South on a Saturday night, based on a recommendation from a family member. It was a fantastic dining experience - the best seafood platter I've ever had, and everyone else in the party was as impressed by their meals. Fabulous cheesecake and ice cream too! The menu is extensive, and judging by glimpses of other diners' food, all items seem to be as good as what we had. Fast and efficient service despite the restaurant being quite busy - thanks to our friendly and competent waiter Lester Petersen. Can't wait to go back there, and can recommend it to anyone visiting Knysna!!
