“Meat Lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

By far the best ribs in town! My husband and I could not get enough of the 'funky' look, the homely atmosphere, the FANTASTIC service and of course the BEST food we had during our trip! Definately a 'do over' if ever we find ourselves in Knysna again! For all food lovers, Olde's is a must on your trip!

“Oldes Pub Gray Street Knysna is worth a visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Oldes pub is one of the oldest in Knysna. It is some time since we visited this restaurant for their famous steaks and ribs. Gone are those those stupid dangerous cushions . My wife slipped off these cushions and did a lot of damage to her back as she hit the floor. The outside tables have been refurbished and presentation is much better.
The meal this time was perfect . We had their famous pork ribs served on a warm platter with vegetable and chips . The T- Bone steaks were also on offer and looked delicious .

The car was outside and the street guys were not threatening . Just lovely people .

Well done Priscilla and Kim we will be back before we leave this great place of Knysna.
At R105 for a large rack of ribs this restaurant is great value for the hungry tourist.

“Authentic local - great meat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

We ate here on our second night in Knysna. We really wanted to get away from the tourist traps and over-priced dining options and talking to a lovely lady in a shop on the waterfront she recommended Olde's. This place is a pub - a well-used one too! There is both a smoking and non-smoking section. The menu has plenty variety, but the meat just attracts. I had chicken wings and the rump steak on a spit. The quality of it was gorgeous, really tender and tasty. Only drawback was slightly drown in garlic butter, but you can control that yourself. My husband had chicken livers in peri peri - not for me!! But he said v tasty. He also had the crispy bacon/pork with sauerkraut and mustard. This was really good too! I had lovely little bottle of sparkling wine, low alcohol and bubbie had Mitchell's, which he liked. Service quirky, but great. Interesting decor - very personal to them. Highly recommend. On-street parking outside too. Prices far more reasonable than the waterfront too.
