We could have eaten here several days on the run to try all the tasty options on the menu. The muscles were fantastic!

Me and my wife went there for our first dinner in Knysna and it was 'ok'. The food was fine and the service was so-so. A fair spot if you need a place to eat, but not a must go

This is one of the top restaurants in Knysna, good food all round. Thin crusted pizza, good meat and vegetarian dishes. It's a good idea to book, awesome view of the Knysna Estuary.

Delicious food, excellent service, contemporary environment. Highly recommend this establishment. We went there for oysters but were tempted to try more.

We stayed on Thesen Island during the recent Oyster festival and ate at this wonderful place twice. Both were great experiences

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Happy hour (17:00 - 19:00) with great cocktails - and a very impressive selection of sparkling wines and champagne. Food is good and the view breathtaking, with incredible sunsets!
