Family of 3 ate here on a busy Saturday evening, we didn't book but got a table although it was early evening (7pm).
Service was great, attentive but not intrusive we were mostly served by Lodete who was lovely.
I had the Sea food platter, my son had the sardines and my husband the calamari we all cleared our plates! The hint of Portugese cooking meets South Africa was wonderful, the taste and the presentation was spot on. Delicious!
If I was ever in Knysna again I would certainly return and don't hesitate to recommend.

A beautiful setting, great and friendly staff. The food was good.Not the cheapest place if you are on a budget, but definitely worth the money.

Very popular with the local people.

Just back from dinner in this restaurant. We had a series of things which went wrong. The food itself is soso, service us terrible. We had to ask for bread 3 times and it took 20 minutes. We were 3 people and we never ate together, neither for the starter nor for the main. The kitchen hasn't managed to have the plates ready at the same time. Very disappointing experience

We arrived after a long drive from Cape Town - famished. The service was excellent and so friendly. Wine was great and we both had the Portuguese steaks - which were done to perfection! I highly recommend this restaurant!
