We last visited here two years ago and as a result we returned. Again the atmosphere was superb and our table was located with stunning views over the harbour and lagoon area. Our waitress was very attentive and very knowledgable about menu items and based on information we gave her, able to make excellent recommendations from the menu. The food, as previously, was superb and beautifully presented. Every aspect of each course was excellent. As expected in this location, the wine list was never ending with a most superb choice. All our favourites where there. The whole experience was superb, our memories from two years ago served us well and we would certainly return whenever we wanted a top class dining experience.

When priced in the range R140+ this is a most excellent spread of food with unparalleled ambience and views. It's better to go when the tourists are fewer, unless you want British and Irish all around you. Its great for families and must always be booked in advance. Permanent staff are immaculate, well trained and friendly, trainees a little more variable. We always go at least once during our visits, its my wife's favourite place.

The hotel and golf club is stunning. We ate in the restaurant one evening on the fish buffet night and it was delicious.

Simola has the most commanding view over the Knysna area one could ever imagine. The staff are very well trained, attentive yet discreet and remember names and people. The food is well presented and plentiful. Go on, spoil yourselves!
