We dined here in the evening with friends - thought it was lacking in atmosphere. Food was average. My chicken schnizel was soggy. I was given a springbok liqueur as recompense. The waiter brought the bill before we asked for it so we felt as if they were pushing us out. Not impressed!

It has the most exquisite view of the Knysna lagoon and boats, soft lights and very friendly staff that makes you feel special.

Had a late lunch. Good setting, with views over the lagoon. Excellent service, although the restaurant was very quiet. A varied menu, though the best choice would be seafood of some sort. the oysters wre good, the calamari was very good.

Cruise Café has a beautiful setting but we went for lunch there last year and were a little disappointed. Friends asked us if we could go for lunch there again and we went today (albeit a little reluctantly)

however we had a fantastic lunch! service excellent, and all five of our party were really happy with their various lunches. I had seafood curry which was delicious!

would highly recommend them after today. A different class compared to our last visit. Perhaps they are under new management I'm not sure., but it was great.

On our weekly trip to Knysna we stopped off at the Cruise Cafe for lunch again. The weather was kind so we sat outside. We shared the mussel starter which was delicious and finished off with kingklip - Ray had the seafood curry - both were lovely and finished it off with a good bottle of Sav. Blanc. Highly recommed this restaurant as both the food, ambience delightful and the nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Try it you won't be disappointed and it won't break the bank!
