As stated with many of the other reviews we encountered a very welcoming atmosphere at this restaurant, considering we came so late... the restaurant was pretty full; naturally during December at the coast; but it was still pretty cosy.

The food was pretty good, mainly seafood based but still a good selection of meat.
the only niggle I could write of was a too limited wine list but thats as bad as it gets.

Our table ordereda traditionaly baked hake, which looked amazing in a tomato sauce; pescador steak; which was done on a mushroom and cream sauce.

Deserts was also pretty good; creme brule and a beautifully presesnted cheesecake.

To sum up a lovely experiance and worth the drive around the lagoon, will definately be back.

Me and a friend had dinner at o'pescador on a thursday night and had the baby prawns and calamari starter (plus a garlic roll) and the portuguese chicken (mosambique style) and trinchada (with red wine sauce) main courses. Every bite was delicious! I wanted to go back the next day for more!

Portugese cuisine. Seems to be set in a holiday resort, Grilled sardines were oily, my food was not the best. Probably ok if you stay at the resort.

This is the opposite of a chain restaurant in a shopping mall, and all the better for it. The catch of the day was perfectly cooked and locally sourced, and the service friendly and attentive. I'll head there again next time I'm in Knysna.
