Freshline Fisheries offers value for money. The menu offers various options and not limited to seafood. But the seafood is an experience you can not miss. Although they do not have a liquor licence, you are allowed to take your own wine etc. Great experience!

Unexpected surprise (unless you've read all the reviews) in a semi-industrial section of Knysna. Tasty, well prepared seafood and excellent service. The scallops were particularly good and the calamari tentacles were the best I'd had in a long time, anywhere.

Went there for dinner with my wife. In these winter months, the fish restaurant and neighbouring Rib and Rump combine under one roof late afternoon, but both menus are on offer. The winter special menu is really great value. The prices are unbeatable, and there...More
