The food was spectacular, the mix of spices was to die for. The waitress made the evening with recommendation and we met Del, who was so lovely , friendly and funny. This is a cash only restaurant, and my only negative was that the menu was so delicious that night I couldn't try it all when we were there. An absolute must!

My wife and I love to cook - she is the best! But we go to Firefly almost every time we are in Knysna. This return was as good as ever - sampling a bit of everything - Tapas style! Remembe one thing - cash only!

Do you enjoy sitting in a red match box, whispering to your partner (because you are right on top of the other patrons) and paying prohibitive prices for average food. If you answered yes, then you are going to love the Firefly restaurant.
Rather save your hard earned cash and go eat someplace else where the ambience is fun and friendly. Expect to pay in the region of R450 for an average meal and bottle of wine. In my book the Firefly is totally overrated.

We thought we would try this highly recommended restaurant, what a disappointment - it was a very limited menu and very expensive for 6 prawns in a creamy curry!! We will not be recommending this to our friends. Sorry chaps but the idea of a cold, dark, tackily red painted restaurant that doesn't accept credit cards is not our idea of an ideal night out. The waitress was however very attentive.
