We went here on advice from our guesthouse however we wished we had kept on driving the food was pretty standard and quite pricey for what it was, it would definitly make a better lunch stop or for a quick drink as the location is great but the service and general food was pretty average!

Great menu with a large variety of different tastes. Good service and a nice position overlooking the lagoon. We had excellent fish and steaks here and a sensible price. Well worth a visit.

This excellent restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating and is the staring point for trips on the lagoon on two cruisers or a catamaran yacht, taking in the famous Knysna Heads.
The staff are well trained and Simon,a waitron, and Carl the manager, stand out.
Try most anything on the menu and you will not go away disappointed.
The tempura prawns, hamburger and calamari tubes are a must.

Such a nice spot to spend a warm and sunny evening. Pork Loin tasted even better than it looked, and Seafood Curry was excellent. Total Bill for two mains, glass of Rose,Castle Beer, and Latter just R184. One of our best meals in South Africa and they were all good. Highly recommended.

We had dinner here with Knysna friends and loved it. Room for kids to play. It is situated at a jetty, so keep an eye on the toddlers who can't yet swim!
