This restaurant was the top rated place on Tripadviser so we decided to give it a go and were not disappointed at all. Some restaurants have great food, some have fab atmosphere and some have great vistas - this place has it all.

We stopped there after the trip to the East Head lookout for breakfast and had a great time. A beautiful well laid out and presented restaurant coupled with the great food and the amazing views cannot be matched by most. We ate in their outside patio where they supplied these practical blankets in case you got cold.

We liked it so much that we did a lunchtime round two days later and just as great as the first. This is to me the best eats by far in Knysna and we tried quite a number of restaurants so have no qualms recommending it. It must definitely be on your to-do list when visiting Knysna.

This place lives up to its billing. Hard to get a table on the terrace facing the Heads, but indoors just as good. Friendly service.

We had lunch here recently after being recommended the place. The outdoor dining area is lovely with amazing views. The food was fabulous and service good too.

Setting is great, service is great, food is great. Not the largest portions, but very tasty! The deck overlooks the mouth and is the place to be seated if the weather plays along.

A lovely spot for lunch. Glorious view of the river and the heads.
Three in our party had fish and chips and I had
the butternut salad. All absolutely delicious. Staff friendly and
helpful. A really nice experience. But get there EARLY. No bookings
taken and it is a very popular place!
