“Lovely Food. Justin is very welcoming”
Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

We went to JJ's three times during our stay in Knysna. The first time we had to wait ( it was Sunday Night) but Justin made us feel welcomed. The food was amazing I had scallops wrapped in bacon called piggies which was beautifully cooked and then had fillet steak again brilliantly cooked. My mum had mussels and the game platter which was Kudo, Ostrich and Springbok again all brilliant cooked. Went back the next night and had something different which we were not impressed with. Went back again tonight had the same as the first night and it was amazing. Definitely worth a visit just book first.

At JJs we had one of our best dinner of our trip along the Garden Route. Wonderful sea food and a nice service at an affordable price.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Had a massive seafood platter which was probably the best we had in South Africa and I'm South African. We even had the opportunity to write a message on a bottle and put it in the roof which was a very special moment. Keep up the great work!
