We had an early supper at Cafe Mario and enjoyed it. This is a busy, long established restaurant and the service was good. My husband loved his calamari but would have preferred chopped cooked vegetables rather than mashed vegetables. Our other dishes were all very tasty.

While spending a few hours in Knysna on route to our overnight stop in Wilderness and after exploring the harbour and shopping mall, it was time for coffee and cake.
Good menu, delicious cake taken outside on a table looking along the waterway.
Good value for money.

We had takeaways, but the restaurant had a warm and friendly environment and the pizza and pasta were wonderful.

It seems that on Sundays quite a lot of places are shut in Knysna so we had no choice but to head down to the Quays for dinner. Cafe Mario was really busy but they managed to find us a table outside and moved us inside (as it was quite cold) when one became available. The staff were fine but service was a bit slow and they weren't that friendly. However, the pizza was good so no complaints on the food front!
