“Good food, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

We enjoyed three meals at Drydock Food Co. during our last stay in Knysna. The food was good and value for money. The selection of side vegetables was limited . Service could be more attentive but this restaurant is definitely worth a visit.

“Very good seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

If you are looking for seafood on the Knysna Waterfront we can recommend The Drydock. We had a very good lunch. Especially the Linefish Fontana was very tasty and creative. The restaurant is well situated and the service from our waiter, Percival, was excellent.

“Consistently Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have been coming to Knysna at least once a year since 1994 and we eat at The Dry Dock at least once on every visit. The view is spectacular, the service is excellent, the waitrons are friendly and well spoken, the food is good, the menu has variety.

I also highly recommend the Dry Dock to tourists!

Food and service fairly average but welcome after a hard day's travelling. Lovely location and outlook on the Quays. Nice fresh oysters.

“Good Food, Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We were very well served by A smart young man named Percival Lawrence. Together with the excellent seafood, he made our Dinner a wonderful experience. As we are coming from the Service Desert Germany, we enjoy making these experiences all over the Western Cape region.
Best regards from Angela, Elke, Gerhard and Dieter.
