The weather was awful so we had to eat inside. However the food was wonderful, cooked by the owner which is usually a good sign. Service good but we weren't on a hurry. Recommended

We took friends to the Red Barn to celebrate their birthdays in November having heard good reports. Well the setting is most attractive but that was the only good thing. Despite having reserved a table they proceeded to give it to other people while we...More

Rural setting with freshly prepared food. Had a couple of meals there and their pizza is the best in Knysna. Well worth a try!

This restaurant has a great atmosphere, in country surroundings as well as good food at very reasonable prices. The downside though, is the appallingly slow service which, apparently, has been the case for some time. Once they fix this shortcoming, we'll be back.

We were really looking forward to a great breakfast but the service was poor and the food mostly luke warm Prices ok for some things but expensive dor others. We were never asked about the meal when paying.

Red Barn is in a very pretty setting, but the food was average. There is a great kids play area with pirate ship and dressing up clothes to keep the kids amused, but the menu doesn't really cater for kids
