Description: A fun, vibey tapas restaurant situated on Thesen Island at the waters edge. Live music, sushi, global tapas and friendly service. A place not to be missed...

Although this spot offers a very nice waterside location, the tapas food is quite oily and service often very slow. Atmosphere can be very lively on a day they offer a live act, but other times the blaring TV's are the only ambiance you'll get...

Nice choice of tapas. The dishes we ordered were all very tasty. Our waiter was very good. The cocktail pitcher that we ordered was good value for money. Lovely setting.

Went there with friends. They serve great jugs of different cocktails. The Mojito jug is a winner - not to sweet. There's a large variety of tapas from all over the world. Everything we ordered were perfectly cooked. Nice live band during the day. Had a lovely day, just what we were looking for!

We stopped there to have some oysters, but were told none of the restaurants in Knysna had oysters anymore.

We were disappointed, but opted for sushi instead. It was really lovely. The waitress was friendly and helpful, but incredibly busy.

All in all it was a good experience and we would like to go back.
