Beautiful view sitting outside looking at the lagoon, and the calamari I had has made me want to go back ASAP. Every piece was tender, tasty and delicious. Service was friendly the price was spot on. My friend had a yummy veggie dish.

We drove all day and by the time we got to Knysna, all we wanted was a beer and to overlook the water. Perfect spot! Food was decent. Not a fine dining experience, but the ambiance is awesome!
