Lovely atmosphere with outdoor seating right on the canals of Thiesen Island. Excellent menu of a large variety of fresh seafood and sushi.

The seafood is awesome, and the sushi has a nice local twist. The service is also good. In season the restaurant is very busy so might want to call ahead to book.

Had a lovely breakfast here. The poached eggs were cooked and presented very beautifully. Sardines were excellent.

Such amazing food. Set at the waterfront overlooking the lagoon. Quick service and friendly staff. They don't reserve tables. So expect a long queue. But the food and experience makes up for the wait.

Not exactly a restaurant... Not exactly a bar... Definitely not a deli... Well, not exactly a deli... It's an eating place, a drinking place and definitely a meeting place. And it's a gift shop, a clothing emporium, a food store, a fish monger and a bakery, too. And the finest wine shop this side of the grape curtain. And it's always on one, single line of latitude - the 34th parallel (but only on the Waterfront at the Knysna Quays).
