We loved the seafood platter and had a great wine with it. Service was very good and we had a very good dining experience with our family of four. Recommendable !

Started not so good with my wife's mushroom starter having cocktail sticks in it that she almost swallowed but just spotted them first. We were told that the waiter should have mentioned this. My leek and potato soup was very good. The sole was excellent, absolutely first class. Would we return, yes

We were staying at Graywood hotel, and this restaurant was quite close by. It was rather busy, but we were lucky to get a table for two. We had starters, Thai fish cakes and Potato&leek soup. Both excellent and tasty, maybe a little bit on the large side for a starter. For Main course my husband had Sole, and I... More

We arrived around 8pm and were lucky because one table was still available (we sat outside on the patio). We ordered the mushroom tower and springbock carpaccio for a starter and the beef fillet and line-fish of the day as main dish. While all the dishes were very good, the beef fillet was outstanding. We also enjoyed chatting to our... More

My friend and I wanted to make sure we ate great seafood while visiting Knysna. This place had been recommended to me from a friend. The service was lovely, we chatted and talked about what we were looking for, and our server recommended cocktails and tasty dishes (appropriately sized) for just the two of us. First time I really appreciated... More

Our hosts in Knysna recommended this restaurant to us and we are glad to get a booking during the busy December period. Although they also offer steak, fish and seafood is a must. I had a very tasty sole and the calamari starter was excellent. The staff was attentive although the restaurant was full until the last seat. One of... More

We were recommended this restaurant and it was well worth going too. Fish is a must here. I had a very tasty sole. Sea food platters are also excellent. Home made chocolate brownie for desert was superb. The service at this restaurant is also very good indeed. Excellent place to go too.

Thank Judbetty
