We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was full but the service was still very good. The menu offers a variety of seafood, sushi, pizza, burgers, steak and much more at reasonable prices. The pizza and sushi was excellent.

Had the Signature Filet, perfectly cooked and tasty. The Sirocco chocolate desert was really good. Best food in Knysna this far.

We had a late lunch while watching the boats come and go from Thesen Island. The lamb shank was falling off the bone and the signature filet was perfectly cooked. The service was excellent. Our only complaint would be that the plates were cold and because we were eating outside our food cooled too quickly.

I went with a large group of friends on a lovely Saturday. We had a big table, and despite having to serve about 12-14 people, service was swift, and the server was excellent.

Evening meal with golfing buddies. Good food, great service. Allowed to take our own wine. A bit lacking in atmosphere but it is out of season. I would recommend it.

We chose this restaurant because they offered to pick us up from Leisure Island free of charge. They picked us up in a timely manner and dropped us off at the pleasant establishment in good time.
