“excellent food”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

It's a restaurant that welcomes you. The owner and the manager Michael and staff make you feel so welcome here. The food is excellent and inexpensive too. Breakfast is a treat especially on a bright sunny morning!

““Best restaurant at the Waterfront in Knysna “”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

This wonderful restaurant is a firm favourite at the Waterfront . The setting is superb and coupled with excellent service the food is consistently excellent .
We visit Knysna regularly and always look forward to our visit here as the thought of another one of the outstanding pizzas is really a treat !!
Of the countless number of establishments that serve pizza it would be very difficult to better the amazing pizza that this restaurant has perfected . All the food is really good and sitting outdoors at the waterfront in great weather is certainly a wonderful dining experience - I must add that our last visit was in the pouring rain and it was no less enjoyable sitting in the very comfortable interior enjoying the superb food .
Until our next visit ....... !!

“Excellent food, value and service. A true gem”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

In the tourist trp of Knysna Quays it would only be too easy to take the easy route of average, but this little gem of a place offers good Italian home cooking in a friendly and very tasty manner. We ate there twice in 4 days and still want to go back again! it was noticeable how many locals go there for all sorts of celebrations. we found it too cold to eat outside in October so would recommend booking to go inside. We ate a stuffed pasta, a lasange, a seafood pasta and a pizza - all brilliant!
