The charm of the decor was awesome, staff were extremely friendly and well spoke, Chef greeted us personally and made some spot-on recommendations which were amazing. Food prices very reasonable and large menu selection and wine list.

Warm and friendly atmosphere, splendid service (Jeffrey always makes such an effort) and delicious wholesome food.

A regular stop for us and a must if you are ever in Knysna!

Charming spot to have a bite of lunch and a drink or two. The service can sometimes be a bit slow, but in the end, it's worth it. Lovely surrounding gardens and another viewpoint of the lagoon from Belvidere side.

We had what was probably the worst meal of our 2 week holiday in South Africa at the Bell. The setting is nice enough, and the prices are reasonable but that's about it. The place was busy, but it's not very big, so you'd think they should be able to cope! But no: the service was unbelievably slow. We waited over an hour for our food, which is hard with young kids, and the food was very average when it arrived. By that point, we were fed up and just gobbled down our food, paid and left as quickly as possible. Disappointing.

Such a lovely warm atmosphere when you enter thru the door into this Tiny Pub and Restaurant. Great Food and a lovely venue on a Cold Winters night with good home-style cooking and friendly service.
