“Lovely Setting !Great Food and Service”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We had a lovely meal at this Restaurant on our first Wedding Anniversary. The manager went out of her way to make our night special. The waiter who served us was excellent and well trained! He reccomended the Line fish Fontana and it was probaply the best meal we had on our Garden Route Trip. Well done! A definate must when in Knysna!

“Best hot chocolate!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

On a recent trip to Knysna I stopped by Drydock for a hot chocolate as I've heard they make the best cuppa in town. So glad I made the effort! Even though the restaurant was very busy I was shown to my table immediately. Hot chocolate arrived within 5 minutes and was absolutely yummy! Fast service and an excellent view to boot. Very happy.

“disappointment”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

This restaurant was recommended since it is right on the harbor in town. However, the tables were uncomfortable, and the food was terrible. None of us had a decent meal--the oysters were dry, the fish not well prepared, and crab in the crab roll was fake and tasteless. What a disappointing meal. To add to the poor meal, the area was very touristy and full of noisy people.

“Good food, good value”
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”
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.
