Not great. If you want to pay R100 for a pizza with extremely little toppings and have a nutella dessert with no nutella ( just plain chocolate sauce) then this is the place for you. The dessert looks great but tastes like cardboard...
Strawberries in this place also means 1 strawberry cut into 6 pieces. The pizza was good but not worth R100... Feels like my money has been wasted. Service - well there isn't really any.

Location, Location, Location. Pity the owners of Senza think that location will overcome all evils. The service was so awful, that we didm't even leave a tip. We were served by a sullen waitress who would have cracked her face by smiling, or even being pleasant to us. She thought she was doing us a favour by serving us. The food was very ordinary, the decor and menus shabby. I had happy memories of this restaurant from many years ago when it was under different owners and a different name, but this place has gone to the dogs

Setting is great looking out over the heads and knysna lagoon especially in the evening, get a seat on the veranda for best view. Service ended up being a bad competition between 2 waiters who made it clear they didn't like each other, this meant our food took an hour and although it was well presented it took ages. We did ask and got a complimentary bottle of wine for the delay.

Im not quite sure what the others here are going on about because we had a very memorable evening here. The staff were very friendly and the food was great, one of the best pizzas I have had in a very long time. If you manage to get a deck seat you will enjoy one of the best settings for a restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're passing through Knysna

Such a nice place with an amazing view and location but unfortunately we had the worst service ever. The table was dirty and wet. The waiter did not even smile once! He brought our drinks and half of the straw's paper was in the drink. The food took a while and wasn't that great. No one came to check on us. After a few minutes of trying to get the waiters attention, we finally got him to bring the bill and he disappeared again. We wanted to pay with card but couldn't find the waiter so we went to the bar to ask them if we can pay there... the waiters there was also not sure what to do and we end up waiting another 15 min for our waiter to appear. They seriously need to improve on their service.
