We visited here twice during our week in Knysna. The first time was on the night of our arrival and they managed to fit us in despite being full and with no reservation, which we were grateful for after a five hour drive from Cape Town. The food on both occasions was very good as was the service.

Four of us arrived for dinner at 6.30pm on 3 January 2013 withot a reservation. We were told the restarant was fully booked for dinner. We advised the check in staff that we would be gone by 8pm, so could we take a table that was only reserved for this time or later. We were shown to a table upstairs at the window. and at that time there were only four tables occupied in the entire restaurant. We ordered our food at a little after 6.45 amd our starters arrived by 7.10pm, which were poor quality and unimaginative. By 8pm, after many discussions with our waiter and managers we still had not received our food. By this time the restaurant was quite full and tables around us were receiving their main dishes after arriving well after us. We received all sort of excuses for the shabby service, At 8.10pm we asled for our bill and left without eating our main courses. Considering we were with family from Australia, the entire experience was most embarrasing and very disappointing. This establishment has a great position on the water, but this aspect will not see them through. The quality of food and service was terrible.

We had a 21h30 booking at the restaurant on New Year's Day. The reservation had been through our hotel concierge. When we got to the restaurant around 21h40, we were first left unattended at the door and our table was not ready. We were asked to sit at a table that had just been vacated, while our was being prepared. We finally made it to our table at 21h53. The only time we met the manager on duty was when we sent back the hake fillet we had ordered as it tasted off. Her attitude was least flattering when she told us that she had sold many that day without any complaint. My experience at this restaurant spoiled a rather memorable two day holiday at Knysna.

Don't eat here though. Food is mediocre at best and service is atrocious. It was high season, but honestly this place is trading on its position only.
