Our guests enjoy the setting, perfect for sundowners overlooking the Knysna estuary, and the food is wonderful.

We have visited Cruise Cafe every time we've been through Knysna with a variety of guests, friends and family. The food is Excellent, the staff are attentive and intuitive which is refreshing!

We've managed to get a table even when the rest of Knysna is busy and to be honest I'm not sure why we eat anywhere else whilst in town!

Well worth a meal (or three!) on your next trip!

We enjoyed our visit to this popular spot. On arriving we were shown a table in the corned of the restaurant but convinced the waiter to seat us outside so we could appreciate the views and weather (it had recently rained, so they were wary of the choice). We had a lovely meal, with wines and were the last to leave at 10:30pm! The food was fresh and well cooked, they did get the started orders wrong, but were quick to rectify.

My wife and I - and our dog - love sitting outside on the deck at sun-down to enjoy a bottle of wine (not too expensive here) and maybe a platter. The burgers are the best that I have eaten anywhere. Had a meal their with family on Mothers' Day but the kitchen and service couldn't cope. Better to stay away on special event days.

Kudos to the whole Featherbed team for creating a superb venue offering excellent cuisine, service and value. Our table of 4 sampled an array of dishes including rib-eye steak, market fish and braised pork neck - all delicious and well presented. Cruise Cafe offers a relaxed ambience with a touch of sophistication and is perfectly situated at the lagoonside. A must visit for all those stopping over in Knysna.
