“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

After taking a walk around the heads, do not choose anywhere other than East Head Cafe for lunch. With an extensive menu and breathtaking views it is not to be missed. The food and service is faultless and the prices are very reasonable.

Food is very nice (seafood as well as kids menu). The staff is well organised and helpful.
They have fantastic place for kids and great view for adults.
Prices are reasonable.

“Still my favorite place for lunch or tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

East Head Cafe, above the dive shop at the Knysna Heads, has delicious tea and cakes, or simple lunches, and an unparallelled view of the boats traversing the tricky heads. The outdoor tables, good food, fair prices and friendly service make it an ideal venue to meet with friends during the day.
I keep going back for more

“Say no more!.......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

Winner of The Sanlam Knysna awards 2013 in the best eatery catagory,,, No.1 on Tripadvisers restaurants in Knysna!..................... Excellent service by very well tutored staff, ongoing subtle improvements to the well tried and tested menu. Best fish and chips that I've tasted anywhere. Stands head and shoulders above the rest. Ssh but don't tell anyone ..... I don't want to wait for a table when i next visit.

“It has it all!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Wonderful menu, great service, fantastic location. It has been a long time since I have had hard alcohol with brunch, the sight of the Bloody Good Mary on the menu was too good to miss however and was more than worth the indignation shown by my kids! Check out the French Toast with Camembert - yummy!
