The restaurant has the most delightful location with beautiful views of the Knysna Heads and lagoon but the food and wine list is very second rate. The wine list had most of the low cost and medium cost wines deleted and if you select wine it is quite expensive.

This is undoubtedly the best restaurant location in the whole of Knysna - and that's saying a lot giving the town's inherent natural beauty. However, one immediately notices how empty the restaurant is, and once you eat there it's not difficult to see why.

Although the food is good, I would highly recommend having at least three choices before the waiter comes to take your order - there were a significant amount of ingredients unavailable on all of the occasions that I've been here. Often there is limited wine available too, and only expensive bottles left.

I've eaten at Cornuti's in Plettenberg Bay and Illovo in Johannesburg, and they seem to be far more on the ball. But, the Knysna Cornuti's is still worth a visit if you manage to get a dish with ingredients available - the food will then be good, and the location worth the typically long wait for service.

Cornuti has a beautiful setting overlooking the Knysna Heads, fresh breeze and great food. Pizza's are very good.

Visited on a Thursday evening, the restaurant was very empty yet the service was terribly slow. Twice we had to get up to find a waitress to get service. The food was okay but considering it is fairly expensive I would expected more. The calamari and chips came just like that, plopped on the plate with a slice of lemon ... No garnish.. Like you would get at a fish & chips shop.. Not a restaurant.
