Our family really enjoy a lazy lunch at the River Deck - gazing over the tranquil water. Our youngest son has fun on the paddle boats while we sip drinks and chat. The pace is slow but that is part of the attraction. The food is fresh and tasty. Highly recommended.

We visited river deck while on holiday in Knysna. The food was simple and tasty, the prices were fair. We enjoyed the creative decor and the inside-outside feel. It was close to where we were staying-Peace of Eden and was a lovely relaxed dinner option.If you are looking for a place to enjoy a big group - family or friends, this would be perfect.

Regrettably we have driven past this restaurant since it opened for business. What a mistake. Not only is the setting stunning alongside the Gouka River but the food is excellent served by friendly staff in any one of three locations in the restaurant. You can sit outside under the sun shade Umbrellas or covered deck or wander upstairs to be able look down onto the river. Now it's Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner on a regular basis. For the energetic you can also rent canoes and ride a horse at the same location.
