“Not cheap but quality and service are good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

Ate their Saturday 16th June. Lovely intimate restaurant and the service and quality of food were excellent, it should be at the prices. I had the spring rolls as a starter and the Prawn Curry, portion adequate and the taste and flavours were excellent. Desserts were on the downside as we were only offered two and both were ice cream based, not good for a cold winters night. I do wish the Owners would listen to their customers and other reviewers and put a card machine in place. Had I not read other reviews on Firefly I could have had an embarrassing moment. None the less a most enjoyable evening and would certainly go back again.

“Tiny little place, magical atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

You feel that you are entering a bit of a fairlyland, trees, lights, candles and a tiny restaurant (3 small rooms) with a bit of a moroccan feel. Spices, curries, unusual dishes - not for the faint-hearted. Try the scrumptious bobotie springrolls as a starter. I love their prawn curry as a main dish. Careful, no cards so make sure you bring cash. Unusual and special. Best suited to couples or friends, not a family restaurant.

“Night in Knysna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

The best food Knysna has to offer. No card fac, which is a bit irritating but once you eat, its all worth it. Brillant! Will go back anytime.
