    We have eaten here a few times before, and food is very nice. We always looked at the pizza section eagerly, then recently after a walk with the doggies, decided to try the pizzas.
    Well, they are of the best in Knysna, you know when each bite tastes fantastic, and you cannot wait for the next, they were that good and we didnt have to add anything to enhance the flavour!!
    Another bonus is that Pizzas 🍕 in Knysna are expensive, but not these Pizzas.
    We are spreading the word. Go to the Gallery pizzas and relish the taste!!
    Some constructive improvements would be the waiter who greets, takes an order, then does not return to check again on anything??

    This is a nice area to visit and very well done architecturally as well. Nice restaurants, shops and more. Such a contrast to the city centre where there is people everywhere and a noisy environment

    Excellent experience!

    My wife and I were looking to get a wedding band made while in holiday. Darryl and Anita made the process special and enjoyable.

    Quick turn around time and the final band looks incredible.

    Highly recommended!

    We love browsing home / lifestyle shops and Metelerkamps ticks all the boxes. With the quality products on display, you simply cannot go wrong with a visit. Service is friendly and understated. This was a fabulous experience and will be a definite stop for future visits.

    Our visits exceeded our expectations by a long chalk. We experienced an unforgettable 3 hour multimedia craft course with excellent guidance from Claire of Storm Pebbles. We also met artist Helena owner of Art on Queen who was running a fun ‘ Sip and Paint’ course. We also visited a bespoke leather maker Lee who is certainly a master of her trade.

    Just to appreciate the art and the friendly people. They are truly artists. Prices are good. Lots of glass jewellery that will entice you. Do take the time to go and have a look

    Kirsten's passion for chocolate came through in the workshop we attended. She provided interesting information about the cocoa bean and its harvesting and processing and the way she, personally, makes chocolate. Such an enjoyable and fun experience with friends. Highly recommended.

    I loved browsing and looking at all your interesting items. Such a pity that you had to move. I will have to visit when I am in your new vicinity

    Housed in the distinctive Thesen's building on Long Street, is this interesting gallery!
    It boasts a display of more than 2000 works by local South African artists - the work on show as diverse and varied as the rainbow nation which produced it! Well worth a visit!

    We had a suite looking over the lagoon with breathtaking views. We could walk to the nearby restaurants, especially the delightful Il du pain which was about 70 metres away (they gave us a breakfast voucher). No complaints except I would probably have re-arranged the suite to be more practical but it was very peaceful and had every luxury.

    What a super shop this is, tucked away in an unobtrusive corner of the Memorial Square.You have to look hard to find it, but once inside you will be blown away by the variety of items on offer. With the increase in on-line shopping, there are still stores which outstrip the cyber shopping experience. Yarn buying is one of them... how else can you assess the feel of a skein of wool, other than by handling it? I bought a beautifully soft yarn which was imported from Turkey... so happy with my purchase!
    Apart from the yarns, there is also a vast variety of knitting and crocheting tools, plus a good selection of various circular needles. A plus is that you have expert help on hand to assist you, should you need it!

    I have been a customer of Sarie‘s for many years now and can honestly say her array of home-cooked delicacies is mouth watering and always special. She cooks anything from typical South African home-style food (like bobootie, oxtail or stews) to the most delicious asian dishes (Indian or Thai curries, Korean meat dishes, etc), Greek specialties, you name it, with or without meat, vegetarian and also vegan. The variety is not ending and due to her fascination with anything food, new dishes join the mix constantly in addition to customers‘ favourites. The depth of flavour Sarie develops in her dishes is remarkable. We have not had a single meal that we did not thoroughly enjoy!
    Her meals are generally deep frozen and one 500ml tub is filling for two if accompagnied with rice or whatever you like, in the comfort of your own home.

    Sarie also makes the freshest spice blends from all over the world and her own creations by dry-roasting her own ingredients, as well as delicious dips and sauces, fermented and pickled foods and she does excellent catering platters. All home-made with fresh ingredients.
    She is also the go-to address for any spice and exotic condiment, sauce, dip or ingredient in town.
