“THE place for fresh oysters”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

This place is about 50m along the quay from the Knysna Waterfront tourist trap development. They supply to many of the nearby restaurants, so have the very freshest oysters available. We’ve eaten there about six times and not all types of oysters are always available, but go for the wild variety if they have any as they’re outstanding; the others are just excellent! They all go for under R100/dozen, sometimes with a glass of wine included. For some more filling fare the 1kg of grilled prawns is not to be missed. The rest of the food is pretty rustic; it’s the oysters you come here for. Atmosphere and service is very laid back, and it looks like many of the customers are regular locals.

“Local as fresh as they get Oysters!”
Reviewed December 26, 2010

If you want fresh oysters, this is the place to get them. Bar atmosphere, lots of locals, and not nearly the price of the waterfront restaurants for the same thing!
