Tough ask for locals to wait 2 weeks to get into our favorite restaurant without having to walk half a kilo from your car and then wait 30 to 60 mins for a table but when the visitors go home and we get to park at the door, walk in and sit down at a table after 5 minutes, and when the food arrives you fully appreciate the long wait was worthwhile and why the tourists flock to East head Cafe. East Head undoubtedly deserves their number one rating; congeniality, service and food quality is beyond reproach. I like the design of their new folded paper menu card, simplicity of food and beverage choices and their style of food plating is right up front. Five stars, no need to say more!

Consistently good offering, generally efficient service. Never had a bad experience here. Have had lunch probably 10 times now. On a good weather day, even if it is chilly, try for a garden table looking right out through The Heads and also down the Lagoon.

Only downside is that they do not take reservations.

Every time we've come here food and service have been excellent. Very few restaurants can boast the stunning setting of this one. If you have limited time in Knysna make sure this is on your list!
