On a recent visit to Knysna we dined on two occasions at this Portuguese styled restaurant. The service was friendly and prompt and having ordered the food arrived surprisingly fast. However, the high point as the Kingklip fillet which was without doubt the best that we have ever had at any restaurant in South Africa ... our compliments to the chef in this regard! If you like fish this restaurant with a perfect position at the Knysna Waterfront is highly recommended.

What a marvellous place! The device was exceptional (beginning with the very warm and authentic welcome)! The food was very good, and that applies for the Octopus as well as for the Chicken Piri Piri (we were in Portugal just three weeks ago and it really tasted authentic!!). The atmosphere was very nice, depending on the table you even have a nice view! Yeh music is very moderate as well. Same for the wine prices. The waiters were right by our sides when we eventually decided to move to a inside table when it started pouring down. You really should consider going here, you WONT regret it!!

Arrived here without a booking and we were lucky enough to get a table outside. There were three kids playing about the front of the restaurant going up and down the elevator and shouting and screaming. The lady running the restaurant eventually told them off and they disappeared for a while. We ordered prawn cocktail to start and it was actually 3 large prawns on a bed of rice not quite what someone from England would expect. It was ok if a little bland. Two of us ordered sirloin steaks which were very good but our friend who ordered the Portuguese steak had to send it back as it was cold and under cooked. Two of us had sweets which were fine. It was quite noisy and the outside tables don’t get tablecloths. For the price 500-600 rands or £25-30 a head I thought it was over priced for what we received. Staff did their job but not over friendly. Probably wouldn’t go back.
