Hardly ever disappointed, the staff team is friendly, the food is great, may not have the best view but the experience makes up for it. We mainly go there for the coastal oysters and prawns. I've only been disappointed once with the prawns and oysters....More

The best oysters in town! Both times we have visited we have received incredible oysters and even better service. They even gave us a bowl of water for our pooch.

For the evening you should book the table in advance. Service is quite moderate but the food is good! Big portions, quite reasonably priced.

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).
