We have been going to Cruise Cafe for years, but the last three visits, it has not lived up to our expectations. Service still excellent, but food has begun to lack lustre. The steak I had tasted like cotton wool and my husbands lamb was raw in the middle. Chocolate brownie pudding was burnt etc etc Beautiful place but food needs to get back to where it was.

We had a wonderful time at Cruise Cafe and I can highly recommend the cocktails. Its a wonderful spot to sit and watch the lagoon on a Sunny day. Food was slightly bland but still enjoyable.

I have eaten at the Cruise Cafe a number of times and it is undoubtedly one of the best inKnysna. The food is excellent, the service friendly and attentive, the atmosphere bistro style and tfood is presented beautifully. it's right by the waterfront with the most wonderful views over the lagoon with a relaxing sunset vista. Excellent wine list and great value for money.

I regularly breakfast here. The do poached eggs and a slice of Gammon on toast which for R32 is not only tasty but reasonably priced as well. The coffee is good and the only complaint is that it is not as consistently good as it could be. But is still one of the best breakfasts in town.
