I ordered I Gourmet Burger. Not cheap, R135. The buns were so old, they just crumbles into something uneatable- So dry and the patty was very dry too with no sauce. My Partner ordered chicken curry and ended up with fish curry! Not what you...expected from a good restaurant like that! Do they think you are so stupid that you will not notice a bun is old and dry? We also waited and waited how long for the bill.More

Visited the restaurant for dinner. Had to go and look for the waiter to order desert. Then no chocolate cake available on a Saturday night?? Place was cold inside despite a fireplace just behind it which was not lit nor cleaned from the previous usage....Lamb shank ordered good quality meat but bland! Friendly staff and gr8 views!More

We sat on the deck area, and enjoyed the pizza as well as the pork belly. Both meals were great and the service was great.

We spent a wonderful afternoon at Butterfly Blu. The venue is amazing, the staff are super friendly and attentive, the pizzas are delicious and the cocktails are out of this world! Their mixologist, Busi, hands down makes the best Frozen Margaritas in Town. We can’t...wait to return 😁More

My hubby and I are so glad we found this place when visiting Knysna! Stunning location and views, and the atmosphere was just wonderful! ☺️ We received outstanding service from Mandy and had hands down the BEST pork belly thanks to Chef Nosi! From starters,...to mains, to atmosphere and service - everything was just fantastic! AND it is so well priced, worth every cent! Thank you! And we went back two days later before leaving Knysna for sundowner Pizzas. Oh my YUM! Huge pizzas and once again, great service from Nelly! ☺️More
