Celebrated my birthday at our favourite seafood restaurant in Knysna. The staff and Management go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Excellent service and food always consistently good. Winter specials are very well priced.

This is a very basic informal, beach style eatery (not at the beach) which is attached to a fresh fish company. Probably the best seafood you can find and for very cheap prices. No liquor license but happy to accommodate BYO. A firm favourite with...More
