The menu at 34 South is very wide and caters to all tastes, the atmosphere is great, the staff are very friendly and while the restaurant was very busy when we were there, our food was on time and delicious.

My wife and I decided to have lunch on our way to plett. Oysters it had to be, which we got. Great oysters, good service and a nice vibe. Restaurant is not in the open waterfront making it more secluded and what we like. Apparently...More

Great atmosphere, good service and brilliant oysters. Quite pricey for the area but then it is in an upmarket setting. If you don’t mind spending a few bucks the wild oysters are superb.

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).
