5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We went there for lunch today. Everything we ordered tasted wonderful. It was freshly prepared, nicely arranged on the plates and tasted excellent. The service fully met our expectations, the view exceeded it.
The best espresso I had in SA so

“Excellent - delicious food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Make sure you visit this place if you go to Knysna. The food was superbly presented and delicious. The service was excellent and the view of Knysna Heads from our table was stunning. Also extremely good value for money. We will definitely be recommending this place to our friends and family.

The food is always excellent. The waitresses are friendly and helpful. The menu has enough variety without being too big.

Terrific views from the outside deck makes this a hard to beat location. That the service and the food are great makes this a must see in Knysna.
