Lovely friendly restaurant in Knysna. Great menu and not expensive. Free shuttle service offered between your accommodation and the restaurant.

Our first experience at Sirocco's was exceptional - the food, the staff and the ambiance. Yolandi is a waitron that surely keeps up the restaurant's high standards. Our oysters were fresh, seafood tasty and desert excellent, especially the chocco sirocco. Thanks, will visit again!

This restaurant really bowled us over! Our waitress, Xolelwa was so attentive, yet not overpowering. Every time I would just think of something i needed...whether it was a top up on my glass of wine or just a wet wipe, she would be there already!...More

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.
