Description: Superbly set in the heart of the Garden Route, Classico is situated at the Knysna Waterfront. Perched on the water’s edge, with splendid views and sunsets, you are sure to find this great restaurant a superb venue, catering for everyone’s needs. The Marina helps to create a very special experience, which we endeavour to enhance with our comprehensive menu and friendly service. Here you will be treated with warmth, sincerity and a desire to please. The restaurant lends itself to a welcoming and relaxed ambience and offers the ideal setting for a scenic lunch or romantic dinner in tranquil surrounds. Patrons have a choice of eating inside or outside on the terrace as both areas offer panoramic views of the Marina and Knysna Estuary. The terrace is completely covered and therefore weather-proof.The menu is known for its mouth-watering selection of the freshest seafood, fish & meat dishes as well as delicious home baked desserts. We also cater for vegetarians. Complementing this, you'll find a range of South African local wines, beers and spirits. Spend a lazy afternoon sampling our fresh oysters and colourful cocktails. This is the perfect venue to enjoy an early evening drink with someone special while watching the sun set over Knysna.Whether dining by yourself or as a couple or as a family or even as a large party, you can rest assured that every effort is made to make your experience as memorable as possible. We will always strive to offer you good value and quality and are reasonably priced for the generous portions we serve. Tour operators and tour guides can relax in the comfort of knowing that their tour group will have a warm welcome and be superbly catered for in breath-taking surroundings.In fact, your trip to the Garden Route would not be complete without a visit to Classico where your every visit is a memorable one…How to get to usFrom Cape Town, take the N2 towards Knysna. Turn right into Gray Street and proceed straight down the road to the Knysna Quays. From Port Elizabeth turn left into Gray Street and proceed straight down the road to the Knysna Quays.We are on the right hand side of the complex on ground level.

A lovely setting on the Knysna Waterfront with comfortable chairs and relaxed dining. Had a lamb curry and oxtail and it was very tasty and tender with good flavour. Good value for money and friendly waitrons!!

Great food, good service and stunning views of the harbor. My only complaint was they were unable to serve few of our choices.

We visited on New Year's Day and had an OK meal. There were several items on the menu unavailable, which was blamed on New Year's Eve demand - really, they couldn't anticipate this and have some reserve stocks? Anyway, that aside the food was decent enough though unexciting. Couldn't honestly recommend this restaurant and given the abundant choice in Knysna I probably wouldn't return.

Went to the restaurant for new years eve. The food was dreadful, a shabby platter consisting of soggy cheddar chesse and cheap salami followed by a seafood and meat platter which was, well just awful, all topped off by a totally unimaginative dessert. The music was indescribably bad. The evening was very expensive given the poor quality of the food and we left early feeling very dissapointed.
