“Ok steak”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

I had a steak and it was ok, nothing special. They forgot the sauce I ordered to go with steak and then it took about another ten minutes to come. The waiting staff were nice but not very good, tourist season and I don't think they are used to being busy.

B stands for Best Burgers! The food is outstanding and the best burgers and chips this side of the escapement! The situation is deceiving, the food is outstanding!

“Probably good for boozing - not families”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Dinner here was a mixed affair. Sat outside in the courtyard at the back. Nice enough and sheltered from the wind. The food was ok, the service was average. But there was a miserable guy wandering around the place who looked like he may have been the owner/chef. Not friendly and that perhaps accounted for the nervous and brow beaten looking staff.

The drinkers in the front bar seemed happy enough though.

Hi Steve C

I do apologize for the unfriendly demeanor of of the man you assumed was the owner/chef, who was walking around miserably. We increase our staff in the middle of December to try and cope with the added volumes for season, so they could have been more uncertain than brow beaten. We do try to serve above average food and appreciate it if patrons let us know, while they are here, that they are not happy, and give us the oppurtunity to improve what we are doing before resorting to the internet, when we have no chance of trying to meet your expectations. If you are still in Knysna please pop in and ask for Crystal.

Wishing you a great day and prosperous New Year.
Crystal
