Great location to watch the sunset with beautiful views of the heads. Yummy pizza and salad ... exactly what we were looking for. Super chilled with a great atmosphere. Will be back when in Knysna again :-)

This restaurant offers Decent food, great views and good service. There is free parking outside, prices are fine. I didn't get Italian food but what the waiter advised from the day menu, carry and they could make it not spicy. Margarita was really tasty as well! Kitchen closes at 9:00pm, strange...

We visited Knysna for an overnight stay and decided to do dinner at Senza in Knysna heads.

After walking to the various viewpoints to check out the Knysna heads, we had worked up an appetite. We ordered an Apollo pizza to share and a glass of Merlot. Good choice! Good value for money fantastic views!

This restaurant is in the most amazing spot. Right at the end of Knysna on the Knysna Heads. Feels like heaven is kissing the earth between the mountains. We sat outside and the kids could play outside in the tide pools and rocks. Delicious fish and chips, beer and great pizzas.

Unfortunately even though the location is the best for proximity to the Knysna Heads, the restaurant is not supported by the locals and therefore does not live to its full potential. its not well kept and does not run well.
