This was one of the few occasions when the whole touring party sat down together to dinner. We had stood on the balcony outside over a drink to watch a lovely sunset and then sat down to a lovely meal. we had been told that there was a wine tasting event that night but that went down the leg side...

Being a small school we chose Sirocco as they were willing to give a classy set menu for a good for value price. They assisted with decor and service during the meal was way about average. Overall good value for money, a good evening enjoyed by staff and pupils. On behalf of Heatherhill School, thank you.

We stopped here en passant as the original restaurant to which wehad been heading closed at midday on Sunday. We sat on the "terrace' and had a very pleasant lunch just about sheltered from the strong winds. The food was spot on, the drinks welcome, the service friendly but on the tardy side...or is that just SA?

We had 2 steaks which were over cooked. The peppercorn sauce was full of whole unbroken peppercorns which made it almost inedible. The service was poor.

One of the best restaurants in knysna. We order seafood pizza, lamb shank and catch of the day, all of them were really delicious and what made better the location of the restaurant on the harbor. Really good experience despite the delay in bringing the orders due to the crowd in the restaurant.

Situated on the edge of Thesen Island waterway, with lovely view of lagoon and The Heads. Vibrant atmosphere and fully booked, probably due to the Sunday Sushi special! Despite this we ordered and were in and out in 75min. Wide variety of food, drinks, craft beers and cocktails.

The food was amazing and beautifully cooked. Great cocktail menu, had the best strawberry daiquiri. Chocolate brownies for dessert were delicious. Restaurant is in a great location, perfect for watching the sun set. Staff were really friendly, service was great
