Reviewed August 17, 2014

Strawberries and cream on banana cake for breakfast - that was a yummy first. Staff were excellent! View was perfect. Another glorious day in Knysna at one of those places where one can best enjoy it.

“Great food, great view”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

Dropped in for lunch. Food choice was great, quality was brilliant. Burgers are indeed gourmet and the calamari are the best we've had in South Africa

Reviewed August 10, 2014

Went here for lunch and had a very nice experience. Good seafood nice atmosphere. But the view is the greatest feature here. The Knysna heads are one of the best views in south africa.

“Great coffee, great view”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Had breakfast here twice during our stay in Knysna. Sadly couldn't make it back for lunch as that looked yummy too! Had the best coffee of our SA trip so far. Breakfast was really tasty, perfectly cooked and service was excellent, all whilst enjoying the stunning view of the Knysna Heads. Definitely worth a visit.

“Continuing high quality”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Always reliable for a good meal! The outside terrace has a wonderful panoramic view through the Knysna Heads and in the opposite direction the lagoon and distantly the Outeniqua mountains. Beyond the views the meals are always prepared with TLC. My favourite is fresh fish and chips washed down with a cool glass of Sauvignon Blanc. What more can you ask and expect!
